I am using TeXShop Version 2.18-svn (2.18) under 10.4.11

Goedde's instructions worked great---even though cmd-shift-I is  
already being used for MakeIndex so that that is what cmd-shift-I   
triggers but, since I never use Italic for the Source and, I don't  
care and just do MakeIndex from the menu---once in a long while.

But when just now I tried to do the same for Bold, it didn't work.
	In step(6), I redefined the keyboard shortcut for Bold as cmd-shift- 
B and that shows in Source > Font
	In step (7), though, nothing that I tried in place of "emphasize"  
worked---but then I don't have much imagination as far as that sort  
of things goes.

Hopeful regards
