Were you ever asked to authorize the use of System Events when you ran an applesecript macro? The OS is supposed to ask ONCE and if you answer negatively it never asks again!

Are there other items listed in the Automation pane? You can quit TeXShop and try running

tccutil reset AppleEvents

in Terminal. that is supposed to reset the kind of event for all applications. When you run any application, e.g. that macro in TeXShop, you should be asked to authorize it again; make sure to to say YES. This will happen again for all apps that use that service.

At some point I assume Apple will make that all work better.

Good Luck,
