The problem is that iTeXMac's syntax coloring runs VERY slowly. I've
turned all custom formatting off just to make it bearable. The only
reason I still use it and not TeXShop is that iTeXMac allows the use of
an external PDF viewer (like Acrobat) instead of the buggy Cocoa
NSPDFImageRepresentation class.
