You can switch to dvipdfm or dvipdfmx in order to go directly from dvi to pdf by adding, on a new line after latex in the Arguments field, the option --dpm (for dvipdfm) or --dpx (for dvipdfmx). Equivalently, you can add the option (on two lines)




See "simpdftex --help" in Terminal.

Attached is my file ~/Library/TeXworks/configuration/tools.ini, which is were the processing tool definitions are stored.
