TeXShop is a TeX previewer for OS X, written in Cocoa. Since PDF is a native file format on OS X, TeXShop uses "pdftex" and "pdflatex"; rather than "tex" and "latex" to typeset; these programs in the standard teTeX distribution of TeX produce PDF output instead of DVI output.
What's New
Version 3.34:
  • A localization for Brazilian Portuguese is provided by Emerson Ribeiro de Mello.
  • Spell checking now remembers a dictionary chosen in the "Show Spelling and Grammar" panel. This makes it easier to use the CocoAspell package.
  • CocoAspell adds dictionaries to Apple's Spelling System which understand LaTeX and thus do not claim that LaTeX commands are misspelled. Obtain the system at http://cocoaspell.leuski.net/. After installing, notice that an extra Spelling Preference Pane has been added to Apple's System Preferences. Select a dictionary and turn on TeX/LaTeX filtering. Then either select this dictionary in TeXShop"s "Show Spelling and Grammar" panel, or select it globally in the "Keyboard" pane of Apple's System Preferences under the Text tab.
  • In Mavericks, the code for selecting a region of the Preview file and the code for magnifying a region of the Preview file broke. This was fixed in an earlier version of TeXShop by using the old code for Lion and Mountain Lion, but using entirely new code for Mavericks. It appears, however, that the old code for Lion and Mountain Lion did not work. Now the Mavericks code is used in all cases and works on Lion, Mountain Lion, and Mavericks.
  • Added Haskell literate script (lhs) as a type that TeXShop can edit, and that can be typeset and syntax colored
  • The Pythontex engine and documentation were slightly altered
  • Rene Fritz provided a new French translation of TeXShop Tips & Tricks
  • TeXShop now contains Latexmk 4.40
  • TeXShop has a menu command to convert tiff illustrations to png. This command uses "convert" if available, but otherwise uses Apple's "sips" program, which has been part of OS X for a long time. Thus the removal of "convert" from MacTeX-2014 will not affect TeXShop.
  • In Multipage mode, each typeset produced a small upward creep in the contents of the Preview window for some users. This is slightly improved, though not yet completely fixed. fixed.
  • In Single Page mode, typesetting produced a momentary flash in the Preview window showing the document's first page, immediately replaced by the current page. This is fixed.
  • New code by Dirk-Willem van Guik to set the "Job Title" for print jobs.
  • The "Show Log File" command has been improved. When this window is first opened, it shows the full log file. Twelve check boxes at the top set various queries to texloganalyser, a script in TeX Live which can pull various pieces of information from the log file. The Redo button then displays this information. For instance, texloganalyser can display all warniings, or all overfull boxes, or all fonts used in a document. Unchecking all boxes and pushing Redo again displays the full log file.
  • If "Show Log File" is selected while holding down the Control key, a dialog appears asking for an extension. If the user types the extension "aux", then the window will display the aux file rather than the log file. Since texloganalyser only works on log files, checking boxes will then have no effect.
  • A new Preference item is provided: "Tags Menu in Menubar". When this item is selected, a duplicate of the Tags menu will appear in the menubar. The new item allows advanced users to hide the Source window's toolbar: use command-T to typeset, selected the appropriate engine using text at the top of the source, use the menu versions of the Macro and Tags menus, and notice that "Split Window" is provided as a menu command in the Windows menu.
  • New versions of the LilyPont and MetaPost engines are provided by Nicola Vitacolonna.
Version 3.34:
  • A localization for Brazilian Portuguese is provided by Emerson Ribeiro de Mello.
  • Spell checking now remembers a dictionary chosen in the "Show Spelling and Grammar" panel. This makes it easier to use the CocoAspell package.
  • CocoAspell adds dictionaries to Apple's Spelling System which understand LaTeX and thus do not claim that LaTeX commands are more...
Requirements
  • Intel, 64-bit processor
  • OS X 10.7 or later

For me this is the best TeX-Editor on the market. Stable, very comfortable and with nearly everything you need. I use ML 10.8.3 on an iMac 27'' (late 2012) and have no problem at all. I am so happy that still updates are coming because its getting better always. A big thanks to the developers.

This is a nice TeX editing environment, but these days it is marred by Apple's hideous Auto-Save feature. It would be nice to have a version of this program that used the normal load/save/revert file management system. Another great loss in recent history is the find and replace panel. It now just uses Apple's bog standard panel which is okay for non-coders but fairly worthless for anyone that needs to work around code spans.

So, overall, in its eagerness to adopt some of Apple's less enticing newer OS features, it's kind of dropped behind the pack for me.

(I should add that is is fortunate the old version 2 is still easily available, and it seems to work fine on 10.8. I just hope it stays that way)

Very nice, been using it since beta versions way back. Cannot thank the devs enough.

One thing I would really like is a full-screen optin with a single window and source/preview/log subwindows. Devs ?!

I've been using TexShop for more years than I care to remember, and I have trouble imagining how I could live without it :-)

Absolutely great job.

From the viewpoint of a scientist, TeXShop has the perfect balance between features and ease of use.

It works perfectly and is constantly improving.

Wonderful job.

Another excellent choice is TexMaker.

My everyday typewriter for a good 10 years... The right balance of speed and features.

Infinite thanks to Richard, Dirk and all contributors.

Stable, fast, maintained, and free. Now allows for Right-to-Left languages to show their direction correctly on a paragraph-level. Just the right amount of useful macros, easy customization, but neither is it too complex for a beginner. Highly recommended.

Texshop-1.29.dmg impossible to mount due to error 199 (macOSX-10.2.6)!
Otherwise version 1.28 was great.
