Thanks for the report, Ettore, and just in time: I’m wrapping up the release of Aquamacs 3.6. It was a bug I introduced in the beta version in upgrading AUCTeX to a more recent version.

It’s fixed for the final release. If you want to fix it on your system, you can do the following at a shell prompt:

% cd /Applications/Aquamacs-3.6-beta2.app/Contents/Resources/lisp/aquamacs/edit-modes
(the first part is however you have the app bundle installed)

% mv preview-latex.el auctex/

You might wonder, why does this fix it? With preview-latex.el in the wrong directory, the loading of an Aquamacs setup file for AUCTeX fails, and it doesn’t complete the steps needed for invoking Skim to work. There is no visible error from it, so it ends up being rather mysterious.

Thanks to Robert Goldman and Peter Dyballa for some clues that helped track it down.

Happy holidays!

If I Shift+Click on the Aquamacs window I get the dreaded “not on a crossref macro argument.” Inverse correlation seems to work, but I have to enable the correlation manually, even though the option is set in customizations.el.
