Many thanks! Anyway, it seems the macro you sent does quite a  
different thing (trashing files), and it's beyond my knowledge to  
understand how to adapt it for the Open related... macro.

Yes, I am using 10.5.6, and the latest TeXShop. Now I have done some  
more extensive testing (but only with the extensions for which I have  
files). The conclusion: The script works perfectly well  
with .tex, .sty, .pdf, .log and .aux. It does not work at all  
with .bbl, .blg, .toc, .snm, .out, .thm, .pdfsync. If used with any of  
these *alone* in the script text, one gets the Applescript error I  
mentioned in my first message. I made sure all these file types are  
instructed in the Finder to be opened by TeXShop, just in case.
