The hyphen was indeed there, I just missed it when writing the mail.  
The space wasn't in the preferences, though. I can't tell for sure  
that at some point I didn't make it disappear, but I have no memory of  
ever having fiddled with the preferences before. But I guess it must  
be me if it hasn't happened to any other TeXShop user.

I wasn't so impressed with SyncTeX before (as compared with pdfsync  
etc.), but I now realize that I hadn't in fact used it. Now I have,  
and it's great.

Thanks again,
