The problem seems to be caused by the localization:
- In the US, the shortcuts are Cmd-` and Cmd-~, which correspond to
the key on the right of the Shift key in the lower left corner of the
- However, on the French and German keyboards, and probably on other
keyboards as well, the same key yields Cmd-< and Cmd->, respectively,
which are already taken by TeXShop for changing the magnification of
the preview window. Hence the problem.
Thus it arises because Apple defined the shortcut for toggling
windows not to specific symbols, but to a specific key, for ease of use.
BTW, in this respect again the localization of OS X is deficient: in
the Mac Help, of you look at the page about keyboard shorcuts for
window management, in the French version of the page the window
toggling shortcuts are still given as Cmd-` and Cmd-~, even though
they are actually Cmd-< and Cmd->.
