Please keep us updated if it occurs again.

Those who are going to try Latexian may also want to try TeXnicle, another editor that seems to be free to try but seems to be a commercial product too. Go to <http://www.bobsoft-mac.de/texnicle/texnicle.html> for more information.

I also suggest that folks may not be getting everything from TeXShop that is available. Go to Help->TeXShop Tips and Tricks to get some idea about what is there. e.g., Command Completion in TeXShop seems to be more powerful than what is described in the Latexian web site. Similarly for the use of powerful, custom engines.

Good Luck,
