A couple of other niggles (all regarding the preview window):

- Make it so that, in multiple page mode, the following/ previous  
page buttons and shortcuts move really one page up/down, while  
keeping the position in the page current (like viewing the bottom  
part of the page), instead of selecting automaticaly the top portion  
of each page. I've not found any setting in the preferences affecting  
this in multiple page mode.

- Similarly, in multiple page mode, not have the top portion of the  
page selected after each typeset of a document. At present, if I'm  
viewing a specific position of a page in the preview window, and then  
press Typeset, after the typeset operation is completed the preview  
window is automatically repositioned at the top of the page. That  
shouldn't happen IMO.

- It may be that my PowerBook is too slow for Tiger, but when the  
preview window is updated following a typeset, I can see in some  
circumstances the page to be (i) first positioned flushright in the  
window (i.e. with the right border of the page at the right edge of  
the window) and (ii) then displaced laterally to match the previously  
selected lateral positioning.

I also hope that, at some point, either through some sort of bundle  
mechanism or in another way, some GUI settings will become document- 
specific, like: size and screen position of the editing and preview  
window, font and size in the editing window, magnification, layout  
(single/multiple/double) and positioning in the preview window,  
printer and page setup (portrait/landscape) for that printer, etc.  
And possibly the engine, etc.
