If you REALLY like tabs try setting `Prefer tabs ... when opening documents' to `always' in the `General' tab of `System Preferences'. I think that might do it globally though.

If you want all sources in a project to automatically open in tabs use the TeXShop directive

% !TEX useTabs

in the root file to open all documents \include'd in the root file. And, to include what you want from the project use the TeXShop directives

% !TEX useTabsWithFiles
% !TEX tabbedFile{secondfile.tex}
% !TEX tabbedFile{thirdfile.tex}
% !TEX tabbedFile{subdir/fourthfile.tex}

in the root file to open particular files in tabs.

If you want Source and Preview to be tied together you can try `Windows->One Window'; not really tabbed together and I don't know what happens when you combine the two things.

Good Luck,
