I have noticed that a book on which I am working has some problems with the formatting of biblio entries, but it has been a while since I worked with the .bib files, and now I have forgotten where to look for them. Unfortunately the search utility turns up a number of .bib files with the appropriate name, but after changing all of them I still haven't fixed the problem. So I assume there is a "hidden" version which is really being used, and I need help finding it.
One way is to use a Terminal window. After you cd to the folder containing your .tex document, type the following line into it, replacing the last entry with the name of your .bib.
That will give you the path to your bib, which you can open in texshop with
open -a texshop "`/usr/texbin/kpsewhich example.bib`"
once again replacing example.bib with the correct filename.
