	When I first used BibDesk, I too was disappointed that it did not 
support macros.  However, BibDesk does support auto-completion, so I 
found it less important to use macros for consistency in journal 
titles.  Still, it would be nice if they were supported.

	My two minor complaints with BibDesk right now are:  (1) the order and 
width of the columns in the list of citations is not preserve across 
re-launching the app, and (2) the default keybinding for BibDesk's 
"Complete Cite Key" Service is [Cmd]-K, which conflicts with the Font 
Panel in TeXShop.  I was able to use the Keyboard Shortcuts in the 
Panther System Preferences to redefine the keybinding for the Font 
Panel in TeXShop, but I'm puzzled why the Services keybinding did not 
default to [Cmd]-[Shift]-K as it does with BBEdit.  And I have no idea 
how to modify _that_.
