[OS X TeX] TeXShop Question

As TeXShop's Help explains, TS will always print the pdf file of the
source by default. I assume this is done by a simple script
if source =name.tex then print name.pdf
Your renaming of the source file causes TS to print the wrong pdf file.
Possible solution, write a script that picks the front pdf and prints
it via the shell.
