Thanks, Maarten. It seems I have version 2.9.1, too. I also have
another version inside the TeXShop Resources folder. I removed that
one temporarily to see if there was any change, but its still the
same. Is there a way to tell what script is being called?
I tried to add unrotated text, but that didn't work either.
