Version 1.35b is now on the website, www.uoregon.edu/~koch/texshop. 
version 1.35a fixed synchronization and problems for users in Japan. In 
version 1.35b

	1) Command Completion is fixed
	2) User defined typesetting engines get the source filename WITH 
	3) Scroll bars on the new help system work better

I'd like to explain 1) in a little detail. In previous versions, the 
CommandCompletion.txt in ~/Library/TeXShop/CommandCompletion was
loaded and saved with the user's default encoding. If the user created 
file in  Iso Latin 1, and then later switched to UTF-8 Unicode,
TeXShop would try to read the file with Unicode encoding, find that it 
was not
a legal Unicode file, and give up. After that, command completion 
wouldn't work.

The command completion file is only used by the TeXShop editor; all 
editors use Unicode internally. So it really didn't make sense to save 
file with another encoding.

In 1.35b, the Command Completion file is always loaded and saved
with UTF-8 Unicode encoding. However, your current command completion 
is probably not Unicode. So if TeXShop 1.35 finds that the file is not 
a legal
unicode file, it will try again using your default encoding.

I recommend that you find the menu command
Format - Completion - Open Completion File
and open your current file. Add this line to the top:

%&encoding=UTF-8 Unicode

and save. The file will now be in Unicode format. Moreover, if you open 
later to add words and save, the file will be saved in Unicode format.

If you have never used Command Completion, I recommend that you throw
the folder ~/Library/TeXShop/CommandCompletion in the trash. The next
time TeXShop starts, it will create a Unicode version of the file with 
the correct first line.

Sorry for all this.
