Yes, but I often use BBedit for other stuff.

Well, it is almost embarrassing to say this.

I reopened teXShop again and it opened the last document with the TeXShop document icon in the window title bar.

Then I went to the Finder, closed the current window, opened a new one and navigated to the folder with that file, and it shows the new icon.

However, I still see this

kMDItemContentType             = "com.barebones.bbedit.tex-source"
kMDItemContentTypeTree         = (


kMDItemFSCreatorCode           = "TeXs"

if I invoke mdls on that file.

This happened to me already before 3.14. Then for a while I had the right icons. Then they disappeared.  Now they are back - I am not joking O.o
