Hi, I'm using BibDesk (latest version 1.2.1 vv185) and preview simply 
fails with the following message (in the pdf preview window):

TeX preview generation failed.  Please review the log below to 
determine the cause.

But there is no log below.  The preview window is empty except for 
this one line.

In the Text preview window the following message appears:

***** ERROR: unable to create preview *****

I have checked the preview preferences, and the paths to pdflatex and 
bibtex are correct.  My tex installation (pretty much out of the box 
i-package) works fine with TeXShop.

I also messed around with other bib styles, but that doesn't seem to 
change the behaviour.

I'm stumped.
