Are you using the Spanish localized keyboard? Also, what ``completion'' are you talking about; Auto Completion (which is really a keybinding) or Command Completion (there you press the Esc [or possibly the Tab] key)? I guess I don't understand what is happening here and why the space bar is being pressed but I do seem to remember a problem there.

If it's Auto Completion you can edit the ~/Library/TeXShop/Keyboard/autocompletion.plist (you MUST open it with UTF-8 Unicode encoding) by changing the lines




(notice the lack of `^' in the second line).

Good Luck,
