[OS X TeX] TeXShop Printing Weirdness

Hi all,

I'm seeing some small annoyances in printing from TeXShop 2.10beta,  
and I wonder if they show up in earlier versions. (I'm pretty sure  
it's TeXShop, and not my machine, but if people running 2.10beta  
would check this as well, that would be nice.)

First, I see the following, if the window for a source file is active  
when I print (cmd-P or choose from menu), the printing dialog box  
comes up a separate window, but if the preview window is active when  
I print, the dialog box is a sheet in the preview window. Do other  
people see this? Which version of TeXShop?

Second, page setup doesn't seem to be respected if the printing is  
initiated from the preview window instead of the source window (that  
is, case 2 above, when the dialog box is a sheet). Do others see this  
as well? One way to check this is to pick a landscape orientation in  
page setup (the middle one, for example), and then pick two pages per
sheet in the layout part of the print dialog box. This process  
results in different page orientations on printout when the printing  
is initiated from the source window or from the preview window. Do  
other people see that as well? (Assuming my explanation makes sense...).
