No, I have a main document (actually several that set up the paper size) and than input the preamble file which includes the chapters. (No exactly straight forward, but this is not my document, I'm just adding a new chapter to an existing document.)

I have a macro but it just enters

%!TEX root =  

at the top of the file, which is rather pointless.
The same happens with encoding and TS-program.

I'm using System 10.6.4 in german, it doesn't change when I switch TeXShop to english.

I have tried with a new user and it works (both german and english)
I have remove the ~/Libray/TeXShop/Macros folder, restarted TeXShop and now it works. (The old macro file was dated 2007)

(I have included the list, just in case there are more long time users that fell into that trap.)

can you add the three macros to the Tips&Tricks?
Especially the encoding macro is extremely useful since I can't remember the names of all these encodings.
