[OS X TeX] a stupid question

Have a source file with preamble you want open for editing. Click File->Experiment (or something like that---I'm not at my computer) and a new window opens. Type you material into that window. Press the Typset button in the toolbar of that window. TeXShop 3.51 will then use the preamble of that source file and typeset the document. 

Good Luck,
Herb Schulz

Can anyone tell me how to access it?
