Hi.  I recall this problem being discussed before (it had happened to  
me as well and I replied to the discussion at that time).  So I went to  
the digests and did a search.  This page has the discussion.


Basically, it happened to me once, and then not again.  I just opened  
the pdf file once from the Finder (after TeXShop had been quit,  
probably) and there was the output.  After that I never had problems  
again.  Others noted that they could see the text after just resizing  
the window or changing the magnification.  At any rate, for me it was a  
one-time problem and did not return.
