A few comments about some of the items in the wish list:
> F1—A SECOND Typeset button, one that does NOT save at the same time
> F2—A preference option to control whether Typeset saves or not - and link that to the keyboard typeset command.
> F3—Have a Command-click/Option-click/Control-click choice that runs the file but doesn't save it. (See Litchfield, March 3, 2009 4:14:29 PM EST)
I guess I don't understand the need for this? Especially under Lion and later there is automatic saving of the document and you can get back a previous version easily.

I'm not sure I understand this. TeXShop will maintain indentation after a return; it doesn't maintain indentation upon soft wrap.
Also, in more recent versions of TeXShop (3.??) Command Completion will retain indentation and there is even an indented version of the completion file.

I've tried to search for this 2008 thread. You can set many emacs style key combinations and commands by using the KeyBindings method and they will work in all apps that use Apple's Text Framework. Download KeyBindings.zip from <https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10932738/index.html> for more information.

I guess I'd find this very distracting.

I don't know what this is?

No ``spyglass'' but you can click on a cross-reference link (if you used the hyperref package) to go to the source of the link and then use the back button on the Preview Window Toolbar to go back to link page.

Again, I'm not clear on what is wanted. You can already create personal tags that automatically get added to the Tag popup menu in the Source Window Toolbar. Simply use
at the start of a line to add `my tag' (without quotes) to the Tag popup.
