[OS X TeX] Keeping TeXShop windows in their place

Flashmode does this (among other things).  This feature is independent of the screen since it only switches to the text where the cursor had been at the last closing of the source window by saving that position in a .position file at closing. When Flashmode is started to control the document it will try to read this information and will ask TeXShop to move the cursor accordingly.

Be aware that with the new restrictions of the OS you will have to give Flashmode certain privileges in System Preferences/Security&Privacy. The OS will ask  you to give your permissions.

Hi all,

Is there an application on Mac 10.13 (Please, Schulz, don't laugh too hard) that would remember the position of each and every TeXShop 4.64 window on closing/quitting and would restore them at that same place when opening/starting? I am normally using at least two source windows and two pdf windows but what probably complicates matters is that I am using two screens.
