Thanks Michael. I tried fixing this problem under Lion, but didn't have much luck.
Unfortunately, I am not able to get your fix to work, though I may not be implementing it correctly. Here is what I did.
(1) Downloaded and unzipped InsertReference.zip.
(2) Opened the resulting .plist file and copied everything from
which occurs immediately after <string> down to the
which occurs two lines before </string>
(3) I then opened the Macro Editor in TeXShop, selected the Insert reference macro, selected all the text in the Content field, and pasted the text I copied from the .plist file.
When I then try and execute the macro, I get:
Expected end of line, etc. but found unknown token.
Am I doing something wrong?
