[OS X TeX] TeXShop question

Hi, All,

I just noticed (being alert and all), after using TeXShop on Yosemite and El Cap for quite a while, an oddity in the behavior of “One Window” usage: when the source file is edited, the “dirty” button on the window is not changed to indicate the change of state.  Is this something beyond TeXShop’s control?  Is there *any* way to tell that you’ve added/deleted characters from the file?  Of course, “ls -l” will tell you, but that seems to be a bit problematic.

Admittedly, I have yet to come up with  case where it actually causes problems, but it does make me twitch a bit.  In addition, I suppose that with two files in the window, this button/indicator loses something.

I'm beginning to like the cut of his jibberish.
