I don't think it can. That wouldn't be much useful anyway, given 
TeXShop soft-wraps lines: what is shown on the screen as one paragraph 
made of several lines is actually one very long line, which is 
displayed wrapped to the size of the editor window (you can check this 
by resizing the window, you'll see the line breaks change accordingly).

This is actually a feature of Cocoa, the programming model of Mac OS X: 
TextEdit works that way, for example.

BBedit can do what you're looking for, and some people on this list I 
think have managed to make it work as external editor for TeXShop or 
iTeXMac. Probably AlphaX can as well. It's possible too that iTeXMac 
has the feature you're looking for in its built-in editor, I'm not 

Hope this helps,
