I know of a few:
%%!TEX TS-program = xxxxxxx
to tell TeX to execute the xxxxxxx engine (latex, pdflatex, xelatex,
pdftex, xetex, etc.) when you press the Typset->Typeset (Cmd-T). I use
this in my template so that I don't have to think about which engine
to use for a particular file (e.g., did I include a jpg or eps image
or do I need special processing using a custom engine?).
%%!TEX encoding = yyyy
if I need a special encoding because I want to embed some non-ascii
characters directly in my file. You can get a list of encodings
understood by TeXShop by looking at Help->TeXShop Help Panel and
search for `encoding'. The Add Additional Typesetting Engines choice
has the list (weird as it may seem). I've only used UTF-8 Unicode
(especially for xelatex), MacOSRoman (for some local documents that
only go out as pdf files) and IsoLatin (Latin 1, which is used heavily
on Windows and *nix systems).
%%!TEX root = rootfile.tex
as you've seen already.
to add a tag to TeXShop's Tags drop down list in the source window.
There may be more but I don't use them so even if I ever knew about
them I've forgotten (I am getting on in age :-)).
