Thanks for the information. I did not try the DefaultKeyBinding.dict trick
as I do not know what the syntax is (I do not have KeyBindings folder). I
spent quite some time last night on this issue and was finally able to find
a workaround (cumbersome but worked): I opened the activity monitor, then
pressed Cmd-T, and selected "capture" from the pop-up window, trying to see
what happened. After repeated attempts, I finally spotted a process called
"ZMScreenshot" showed up for a split second and then disappeared quickly
whenever I did so. If you right-click on the Zoom icon and select "Show
Package Contents", you will see this little app is embedded under
Contents/Frameworks/. After quitting Zoom, I could use Cmd-T to typeset in
TeXShop again like before. So the culprit is an app in my Zoom (mine is the
latest enterprise version, if that matters). When I am typesetting my
papers, I could not do Zoom meetings anyway, so this is fine by me.

I understand this has little to do with TeX on Mac OS X but still described
it here, perhaps it would be of help to someone who encounters this strange
behavior too and stumbles upon this thread by googling.
