[OS X TeX] Positioning within preview window in TeXShop

Is there a way to teach TeXShop to open a document at a fixed position 
within the preview window?

More clearly: for the moment, every time I open a .tex file the 
corresponding .pdf file is shown with the lower left corner of the 
preview window corresponding to the lower left corner of the first page 
of the .pdf document. Is it possible to change this?

Though this behaviour is not really an annoyance, it would be helpful 
(in my case) if TeXShop could open the .pdf file with some user-defined 
portion of the page shown in the preview window, not necessarily the 
lower left portion; or maybe simply if TeXShop could remember how the 
page was positioned in the preview window the last time this file was 
opened. Ditto for remembering the page number.

My reason for suggesting this: I am working on a document where the text 
occupies only a relatively small portion of each page (publisher's 
instructions). I enlarged the scale to 150 % and reduced the preview 
window to approximately half-screen size, so about half the page is 
shown in it. Then, every time I open the document, I must re-position 
the text within the window. Again, not really an annoyance, but...
