I don't know if this helps or not but sectioning commands  
automatically are placed in the `tags' drop down in the toolbar of  
the text (.tex) file window. Pick one of those and you'll  
automatically be taken to that sectioning command.

You by adding a line


to a file you can add tagname to the tag list and jump to it quickly.  
You can quickly add the `%:' by using the Cmd-2 keyboard shortcut.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck,
