Is this specific to TeXShop?  I can easily make Excalibur aware of
this command.  You can also do it by using LaTeX->Edit Commands.

Excalibur does look at the file type.  It will open any TEXT file.  I
guess TeXShop files aren't TEXT files.  Shouldn't they be?  Excalibur
doesn't care if the file has a resource fork and you don't need one to
have a file type.

This is an instance where balloon help was really useful.  Excalibur's
balloons would have told you why the Add button wasn't available.
It's probably because none of the dictionaries that you were using was
writable.  The Standard Dictionary is read only.
