It's been frustrating because there doesn't seem to be any consistent way to generate the lockup and there doesn't seem to be anything noted in the System logs. A file cleanup and re-compile has always worked for me.

It might be worthwhile to get in touch with Tyler Jarvis to see if he can gather any helpful input to solve this problem since it seems to happen to him quite often.

Hi Herb,

I'll be mostly offline until Monday, and unable to pursue the matter, but it might be interesting to ask Tyler Jarvis to use the "log" utility to see if any TeXShop- or pdflatex-related output has been stored in macOS'es new unified logging system.

The problem is I've no clue what the proper invocation would be. Maybe something like

log show --style syslog --predicate 'senderImagePath contains[cd] "TeXShop"' --info

"show" instead of "stream" questions past logs instead of currently occurring ones, and [cd] makes the NSPredicate case diacritic insensitive.

I've just tried on my setup, it only returns info about Sparkle's TeXShop updates

$ log show --style syslog --predicate 'senderImagePath contains[cd] "TeXShop"' --info
Filtering the log data using "senderImagePath CONTAINS[cd] "TeXShop""
Skipping debug messages, pass --debug to include.

To be sure (I haven't really done any TeXing for some time) I just compiled a document with XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX: nothing related is returned by the above. Whether it's a matter of finding the correct invocation, or whether the TeXShop compilations generate no info in the macOS logging system, I've no idea.
