This version works fine if I use the ``startup'' button before starting up
Flashmode-TS; that seems to startup TeXniscope (and maybe TeXShop although I
have that running already). Otherwise nothing happens when I try to startup

Flashmode runs smoothly in the background but I have to admit it ``feels''
sluggish on my 550MHz Powerbook. Of course I rarely used the ``flashmode''
with Textures on any of my old OS 7-9 systems for the same reason; it was
``ok'' on very short documents but sluggish on most things. I always seem to
be running on the ``bleeding trailing edge'' of technology.

Good Luck,
