[OS X TeX] 1) Search source file when preview is active (`front'). 2) Incremental search

I would like to be able to press Cmd-F when in the preview and search the source file. I thought I’d try something myself before bothering everyone, so I looked at the standard macros, and aimed for something along the lines of

tell application "TeXShop"
end tell

Of course it didn’t work. Whether it’s just because to invoke the command `Find…’ the syntax is more complex, or there is another flaw, I don’t know. I am sure it’s possible, as `Insert Begin/End’, for instance, works when called from the preview, as do others. There probably is a more elegant solution altogether, that simply makes the standard `Find’ command available. (The alternative, of course, is to move to the source window, which is what I do currently.)

A related topic is whether one can have an incremental search command in TexShop. It is available in Chrome, say, so should not need programming from scratch.

Thank you.
