However, it did not trigger a request for access as expected and TeXShop is nowhere to be found in the Privacy under Automation tab — other applications are. Most of the macros seem to be working. I think I can work with this now, but it is strange that no permission question was raised.

Howdy,

Hmmm... I'll have to examine the macro. I thought it used some external references but maybe Micheal Sharpe was able to remove them so there wasn't a problem. Applescript is NOT a Natural Language as far as I'm concerned.

Good Luck,
