Hi Andi,

Thanks for your email.  Alas, I don't use TeXShop, nor do I have it
installed in my system.  I use AUCTeX in any one of the Emacsen for
Mac OS X.

I did discover 'ebb' which generates the .bb file from the .pdf file
and I have now been able to include the files.  Nevertheless dvipdfm
still gives a warning when it includes the PDF files:

    Version of PDF file (1.3) is newer than version limit specification.

This can be explained by the fact that the dvipdfm configuration file


has set a line

V 2

I have changed this to

V 3

and everything works fine now.

Cheers, José
