But I do often need to do just a (pdf)latex run to check syntax, to proofread, etc.; so for that, when TeXShop gets finicky and freezes, as it sometimes does with my 600+ pages, I’ll have to resort to a Terminal command-line run of pdflatex.


This problem is very difficult to pin down. There is some hope of understanding the problem. It may even be related to the OS since it doesn't seem to be there under the Catalina beta. but the Catalina beta surely has lots of debugging code which may mask the problem there. E.g., the problem doesn't seem to be there when running in debugging mode under XCode.

The closest there is Help->Comment Lines and Hidden Preferences.

Good Luck,
