I want to use BBEdit to edit and Preview to view the pdf. I set the
various prefs in ITeXMac but can't get it to co-operate. I have been
running the following script to send the file to iTeXMac - can someone
tell me what I am missing?:-)

tell application "BBEdit"
    save active document of text window 1
    set f to file of active document of text window 1
end tell
set f to POSIX path of f
-- assuming this works...
tell application "iTeXMac"
    typeset given «class File»:f
    --  makeIndex given «class File»:f
    typeset given «class File»:f
end tell
