     I start TeXShop and set the preference to "Fit the window".

     I quit TeXShop.

     I start a TeXShop document and typeset it. The page comes with  
one pane with the scale at 124. (that's how I saved it before.)

     I shrink the window and the scale goes down to 102.

     I split the window and both panes are at 102.

     I click in the bottom pane and scale to 132. The bottom pane goes  
to 132, the top pane remains at 102. So far, so good.

     I click in the bottom pane (at 132) and un-split the window and  
the scale is 102.


I don't see what the underlying logic is.

By the way, when the two panes are at different scales, the scale at  
the top is indifferent to which pane is active.

Puzzled regards
