You left pout one #:


and assign it to some keyboard shortcut (the up and coming TeXShop  
2.28 has Cmd-B and Cmd-I set free so you could use Cmd-B which should  
be natural). Then select the text you want to be bold and press your  
shortcut and it will be surrounded by your command with the cursor  
still between the braces for adding more text if desired.  
Alternatively, first press your shortcut and the cursor will be  
between the braces and you can then enter the text.
Good Luck,
