# [OS X TeX] Feature suggestion

One feature I would really like to see in TeXShop, or any other TeX-editing
tool, is a quicker way to change an existing \begin{} \end{} environment
>from one environment to another.

For example,

Change
$$...math stuff...$$

to

\begin{equation*}$$...math stuff...$$\end{equation*}

Other changes that occur when editing a paper are: {align} to/from
{alignat}, {gathered} to/from  {split}, {itemize} to/from {enumerate} or
{description}.

Is is reasonable to ask the editing software to recognize that a change is
being made to a \begin{}, find the matching \end{}, and make the same change
there?  Of course we would not want this to interfere with the creation of a
\begin{}\end{} pair, nor would we want it to mess up the content inside an
existing environment.

Does any existing tool do this?
