This does not work. I get the error message "The program /opt/local/bin/biber does not exist“.

If TeXShop uses the programs from MacTeX (or whatever distribution is used) by default, the current help text is a bit confusing. I talks alternately about adding engines and defining the default programs of a document, thought the two things are not really related. Wll, they are in some way, but obviously engines have no influence on the default programs defined in a document.

In my local tree.
