I am a happy TeXShopper who mostly has to work on multiple documents at
the same time. If I have 3 files open (e.g. a presentation, a
manuscript and maybe another inspirational document) I end up having 9
windows (source, output and console) flying around my screen. This is a
little confusing and trying to locate the appropiate window (I dislike
going to the window menu) takes some time and moving around.
How do you handle open windows when there's more than one window open?
As far as things looked, iTeXMac uses the same three window approach.
So I already thought about asking Dick to expand TeXShop's
functionality to make life easier for me, but so far I have not found a
better way to handle open files. I dislike the idea of having to switch
tabs in order to see my preview/source. Maybe the windows of the same
"project" could become magnetic and stick to each other. but then
again: sometimes I like to view the preview of one document and the
source of another. Perhaps the console could be attached to the
editor-window? So many possibilities, but I fear none of them will
eventually make my work more efficient, so all suggestions are very
