TeXShop 3.72 will be released sometime in the next two weeks. I just added a hidden preference named "IndexColorStart" to TeXShop 3.72. This preference controls the status of the ColorIndex toolbar item when a document is first opened. The item can still be turned on or off during a session as before.

This preference is a Boolean with values YES or NO. By default, it is NO. The command below sets the default to YES:

	defaults write TeXShop indexColorStart YES
