Wrong thing. What the OP is talking about is that, in Emacs, you can
hit M-q and Emacs will rewrap your paragraph to the selected width,
removing extra blank lines, short lines, and long lines introduced by
editing. Vim does this for me just fine; I have no idea what TexShop
can do.

I have to say, though, that I'm surprised TexShop can't do that. But I
also don't understand the compelling need for it. Contrary to the OP's
experience, I find it *easier* to exchange files with long lines...
the only exception being when sending email...
