# [OS X TeX] A question from a new member

\cite and \citet should both work.

Have you told Bibdesk to load a default bibliography? This is set via
Preferences|General|Application Launch|Open File

Maybe if Bibdesk doesn't have a .bib file loaded then it will not have
any autocomplete information to work with. Oh, and make sure you have
actually added TeXShop to the list of applications that should use
BibDesk's cite-key autocompletion - Preferences|Completion.
