[OS X TeX] Re: List of feature requests on this list

This "wish list" is a compilation of TeXShop features being suggested/ 
requested on this list. Omissions result from my negligence rather  
than from my malevolence.

By the way, suggesting a TeXShop feature on this list is absolutely  
not an alternative to making a request at  http://sourceforge.net/ 
tracker/?group_id=155796&atid=797241 . (This thread started as a way  
to gauge the importance accorded to features suggested/requested on  
this list but, while "voting" didn't seem to generate much interest,  
"keeping track" seems to have.)

In order to facilitate later archive searches, features being  
suggested/requested on this list should probably be suggested/ 
requested and discussed IN SEPARATE THREADS, UNDER THEIR OWN NAME,  
rather than in this thread.

Hopeful regards
