Are you referring to using TeXShop's Symbol Panel; the one you open  
via the Window->LaTeX Panel... menu item (Cmd-Opt--)? Just select the  
tab you want and click on the symbol you want; the LaTeX command will  
be placed in your document.

There also is a Symbols Widget that does a similar thing available at <http://vocaro.com/trevor/software/widgets/ 

Good Luck,
