If it works in LaTeXiT and TeXshop, TeXworks and LaTeXit all are using the /usr/texbin binaries (i.e., the same TeX Distribution) it MUST work with the correct preamable in that latter two since all of these are just front ends to that TeX distribution.

Could you give us a minimal but compilable sample tex file so we can test it on our systems?

Good Luck,
