Dear Ramis,

Many thanks for your response.

I tried to add the .pdf extension to open the file but it still doesn’t open.

No, no warnings upon compilation either. Here is what I would get for example:

This is MetaPost, version 1.504 (kpathsea version 6.1.0)

(mpost.mp (/usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/metapost/base/plain.mp

Preloading the plain mem file, version 1.004)) (./binomial.mp [1{pdftex.map}]

[2] )

2 output files written: binomial.1 .. binomial.2

Transcript written on binomial.log.

And attached is a screenshot of the files.

Many thanks again for your help

any warnings/errors when compiling? Are you sure it is not a PDF (just add the “.pdf” extension to the file and open it).

Dear colleagues,

On my former Macintosh computer I had no problem compiling MetaPost files within TeXShop, which produced a readable pdf file.

With the new TeXShop version on OS10.9 I obtain a file without extension that appears an exe file in the Finder and cannot be opened with any program I have.

If anybody knows the trick how to obtain the right pdf format as an output I would be very grateful.
