[OS X TeX] TeXShop on Tiger: Reloaded

Something I just remarked with TeXShop on Tiger: the Preview Window  
Magnification doesn't stick. On my setup it's set to 150, but  
apparently that's not taken into account; instead, it seems Fit to  
Window is always applied when a document is opened.

What I also miss is no longer having Fit to Width as an available  
magnification. It seems there's now only Fit to Window, with  
different effects depending on whether Default Page Style is set to  
Single Page or Multi-Page:

- In Single Page, the magnification is set such that the whole page  
fits within the window.

- In Multi-Page, it is set such that the page width occupies the  
whole width of the window.

That makes sense.

Thanks, in any case, for having fixed the bug in which, in previous  
versions of TeXShop, when moving one page up or down, the lateral  
centering of the page was lost.

A request: keyboard shortcuts for scrolling up or down, and also one  
page up or down. It would be nice to be able to scroll a whole  
document without having to use the mouse. Wait! After trying some key  
combinations, it seems you can actually do this: Space scrolls one  
screen down, and Shift-Space one screen up.

A suggestion: something convenient in recent applications like Pages  
and Keynote (from iWork) is in the Help menu, in addition to the Help  
item itself, another Keyboard Shortcuts item opening a separate help  
document (in Help Viewer) containing a table of all keyboard  
shortcuts for the application.

I second the request, made last week-end, of being able to hard-wrap  
text in TexShop. Possibly a switch enabling "Hard Wrap As You Type",  
and a command "Hard Wrap", pretty much as for spell checking.

Finally: is it planned at some point to add to TeXShop the ability to  
Cmd-Drag for discontinuous selection, and Alt-Drag for column  
selection, as now allowed by NSTextView? (As I don't know whether  
TeXShop uses NSTextView, this suggestion may make no sense at all.)
