It is a new window containing only the error message

> First try to simply move the ~/Library/TeXShop/Macros folder to the desktop and restart TeXShop. this should create a new Macros folder. If this fixes the problem you probably had a messed up macros plist file. You'll have to re-enter any additional macros you already created.

Removing the ~/Library/TeXShop/Macros folder did solve the problem.
Thank you for the advice.
