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
I have changed this to
and everything works fine now.
