No, not that! What I meant is at least two tabbed windows. Plus an  
optional third one with the console log.

One set of tabs in one window can have all input related things like  
(La)TeX, BibLaTeX, and whatever sources, the other set of tabs in  
another window can have all output related stuff. There could be a  
choice between console log and real LOG file. And it's not  
necessarily a preferences thing, I think. Every TeXShop window should  
become enabled to open new tabs into which source, log, or PDF files  
can be loaded (or mapped).

Another option could be to have in the output related window open  
more than one page of the PDF output. Optional: in each tab the  
option to freeze the output displayed fron an ancient run. To be able  
to compare (Rome before and after burning).

And another option would be to click on warning or error messages in  
a log tab and a tab in a new or in the input related window opens  
showing the corresponding line in a STY or CLS file which is  
reporting the cause of the message. Of course the input sources get  
adjusted too to show the code triggering the message.

A new name for the new tool could be: TeXShop Centre®™. TeXShop Mall?

(I hope it wasn't too much sun out today!)



A morning without coffee is like something without something else.
