The following TeXShop engine will generate a figure that works well in
TeXShop. It does so by calling pdfcrop at the end. To use it save it in a
text file with the suffix ".engine", make it executable and place it in the
Engines folder of TeXShop.


P.S.: Just for fun, I'll try to write an engine that calls Acrobat. If I
succeed I'll post it here :)

latex "$1"

pdfcrop "${basefname}.pdf"
mv "${basefname}-crop.pdf" "${basefname}.pdf"
