[OS X TeX] Problems with TexShop macros

When the Macro facility was added to TeXShop long ago, we included a large sample of things it could do. The idea was that users would examine those samples for ideas, and then throw them away and create their own macros.

But some of the samples proved very useful. That is particularly true of Program, Encoding, and Root at the very top. Users started using the samples as part of TeXShop, rather than as a guide to making their own.
Thus today the Macro list is a motly collection of essential items, items useful for a few people, and items whose purpose we no longer remember.

It turns out that "Insert Begin/End" works like this. Type


and select it and then select the macro. You will get



and then you can insert text in the middle.

I have completely forgotten what "Close Begin/End" was for, and looking at the actual code in the Macro editor didn't immediately ring a bell.
