I just created the binding (->(#SEL##INS#) in the Key Bindings Editor, saved it and tested it and it seems to work fine.

If you haven't added too many items to the list you can Quit TeXShop, remove the ~/Library/TeXShop/Keyboard folder and restart TeXShop. That should create a clean autocompletion.plist file. Then go into the Key Bindings Editor and add your personal bindings.

By the way, I don't have a key binding for [->[#SEL##INS#] or (->(#SEL##INS#) (I removed the one I created after testing it) because there seem to be too many times where I prefer a single ( or [ matched with something else in math mode. I do have {->{#SEL##INS#} because it's a general grouping delimiter and using it in math requires that it be ``escaped'' as \{ and Key Bindings is smart enough to NOT expand the keystroke if it's being ``escaped''.

Personal choice of course.

Good Luck,
