You might want to try generating a new preference file. Move the  
TeXShop.plist file from ~/Library/Preferences/ (~ is your HOME  
directory) to your Desktop and start TeXShop; that will generate a new  
preferences file. If that fixes the problem there was something messed  
up in your preferences and you'll have to reset the preferences the  
way you want them.

Good Luck,
