Many thanks to Adam Maxwell and Kino and Will Robertson.

Pdftex is ticked at the bottom of the Typeser menu. (It must have been 
by default as /I/ sure didn't tick it.)

But I have trouble with


When I type (the first two are from previous attempts)



and The Indian TeX Users Group's LaTeX Tutorials'


    \caption{This is an inserted pdf graphic}

and Adam Maxwell's


    \caption{The caption}

TeXshop typesets and the pdf file shows just

    Figure 1.1: default

    Figure 1.2: This is an inserted pdf graphic

    Figure 1.3: The caption.

Which, I think, is how it should be. But when, with Fig1.pdf in the same 
folder as the tex files, I insert the line


in any one of the above, the console says

    ! Undefined control sequence.

and, when I click Goto Error, it highlights the line I inserted.
I assume I am missing a \usepackage{????} but then what is ???? ?

Regards to all
