You might consider using the xelatexmk engine which will run xelatex,
bibtex and/or makeindex and then the necessary additional runs of
xelatex to resolve all (cross-)references. Look in ~/Library/TeXShop/
Engines/Inactive/Latexmk/ for information on activating the latexmk
engines. Once the engines are active add the line
%%!TEX TS-program = xelatexmk
to the top of the file. Then Cmd-T will run xelatex via the latexmk
program which will take care of the complete processing of the file.
