1) Install Xcode, in case you don't have it. If you don't have it on  
CD or DVD, go to the Apple Developer's site <http:// 
developer.apple.com/> and click on "Not a Member?" to join in. It's  
free (the Online membership, that is, not the select or Premier ones  
for which you have to pay). Afterwards you'll be able to log in, and  
go to a downloads page to download Xcode <https://connect.apple.com/ 

2) For safety, make a copy of the TeXShop application on your Desktop.

3) Back to /Applications, Ctrl-Click on TeXShop and select "Show  
Package Content" in the pop-up that appears.

4) Inside the new TeXShop window, navigate to Contents/Resources/ 
German.lproj/ (depending on your selected language in System Prefs/ 

5) Double-click MainMenu.nib, and in the menu bar window that appears  
select Format then the line whose shortcut you're willing to change.  
After that it's all straightforward (replacing Cmd-> and Cmd-< by Cmd- 
[ and Cmd-], for example).

6) Use this modified TeXShop and after a few days, if all goes well,  
delete the unmodified copy.

7) When Dick Koch releases the next version of TeXShop, containing  
already a fix for this issue, delete your customized copy and install  
the new version.

Hope this helps,
