[OS X TeX] type regular double-quote in TeXShop?

The suggestions below will be useful to many. But there is a piece of confusion in the email which is the fault of the TeXShop team, and I need to clear it up.

"Auto completion" and "Key Bindings" are the same thing. The first is the original name, but that was easily confused with "command completion", so we changed to the more appropriate name "Key Bindings". Unfortunately, we only changed the interface elements visible to a user, but not the code and not the name of the autocompletion.plist file.

So editing the ~/Library/TeXShop/Keyboard/autocompletion.plist file directly is the same thing as using the interface "Source->Key Bindings->Edit Key Bindings File..." and editing that way.
