I just discovered that editing the info.plist file gets detected by the OS and you can not create a New document (although New From Stationary… works?). I get a dialog box saying ``No document could be created'' when executing File->New after editing. There is also a Console message: ``TeXShop[2109]: The org.tug.tex type doesn't map to any NSDocumentClass''.

I think I'm going back to 3.11 for now.

Good Luck,
