TeXniscope does it with an AppleScript, AFAIK. Maybe not as nice,  
fast or elegant as in TeXShop or iTeXMac, but it certainly does the  
job :-)

Ah, OK, didn't realize that.

I think that's out of my league :-)

No, in TeXniscope you just provide the path to the editor and its  
command line options in the preferences and presto, you're taken to  
the source after command-clicking somewhere.

Anyways, I found a solution, I described it in my other message. I  
also want to thank you for taking the time and of course, for  
bringing us iTeXMac! Keep up the good work!
