What's New
Version 3.26
  • The combination of Preference Settings "Configure for External Editor" and "Automatic Preview Update" is now compatible with App Nap in Mavericks. Thanks to Zhiming Wang for pointing out this problem and its connection to App Nap. In Mavericks, the Get Info panel for many applications has a check box to turn off App Nap. TeXShop has no such box. The reason turns out to be that TeXShop is compiled with XCode 5 on Mavericks, and Apple assumes that applications compiled on Mavericks have been fixed to deal with App Nap. TeXShop is now fixed in the approved manner.
  • Michael Sharpe wrote a beautiful document describing Applescript in TeXShop and problems that might be encountered writing new Applescript Macros. I have added that document to the Help Menu, In addition, I added Michael to the list of TeXShop contributors, because his web page contains a number of AppleScript corrections which I have adopted in the Applescript Macros shipped with TeXShop.
  • The following four Macros had problems with recent versions of OS X. Fixed versions by Michael Sharpe and included in this release:
    • Open Quickly
    • Insert Reference
    • New Array
    • New Tabular
    • There is a new arara engine by Alan Munn in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/Arara. The arara program is part of TeX Live 2013. Documentation for it is included in the above folder. Roughly speaking, it is a replacement for both latexmk and parts of the TeXShop engine mechanism.
    • Small changes were made in the Japanese localization by Seiji Zenitani

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.

Nono had trouble on 12 Jul 2003
Texshop-1.29.dmg impossible to mount due to error 199 (macOSX-10.2.6)!
Otherwise version 1.28 was great.
