I use the following applescript from the Macros tab in TS. It assumes that the source file is open. At the end of the spell check and while Excalibur is still active, choose Save from Excalibur’s window. This will save the changes and will updated the TS source file (no need to close and re-open the source, as in the olden days). Let me know if you have any problems with the macro.


PS: I forget who to credit for the original version of the macro, but it did come from this list. 

-- Applescript direct

tell application "TeXShop"
	get path of document of window 1
	set fileName to result
end tell
do shell script "open -a " & "/Applications/TeX//Excalibur-4.0.7/Excalibur.app " & quoted form of fileName
