I can use Sneep’s script to sync BBEdit —> Skim from the script menu, and that does work. Again, shift-command-click works for TextWrangler, but does not work for BBEdit.

I don’t have a keystroke assigned to synching BBEdit->Skim so I am placing the cursor in the source text then selecting the AppleScript from the BBEdit AppleScript menu.

I checked versions of BBEdit back to 11.0.3, and none of them work, although 11.0.3 certainly worked previously. So, this is a very odd situation. I’ve been in contact with Bare Bones Software, and just sent them my latest observations. I haven’t yet contacted the Skim people, I suppose because the last time I did it was kind of a painful process.
On the one machine that I didn't revert to Yosemite, I found that syncing from Skim to BBEdit did not work (activated by Shift-Command Click) until I reinstalled the BBEdit Command Line tools.
