Ok, thanks!

No, I never Read The Manual unless absolutely necessary!  ;-)

I got it to work once I found the right place in the help window.
(Is there a way to stop the mac help windows from being obnoxiously
on top?)

I suggest that the typeset button be default to be in the preview so
one doesn't need to customize.

I wasn't able to get latexmk to recognize that my file had changed and
do the typesetting in TeXshop.  Isn't that possible, or did I just
miss it?
