For what it's worth:
I am running TeXShop 1.43 under 10.3.9 on a 1GHz Power PC G4.
The part of the Magnum Opus I am currently working on includes 10
chapters for a total of 209 pages, probably a hundred or more
(small) pddf figure.
It typesets in about 30 seconds which is fine by me since the
alternative is about $2000.
But, indeed, if you make a change in one chapter, TeXShop goes through
the whole thing which is why I usually typeset each chapter as needed.
The way I do it is having a main file, e.g. Book.tex with just the
include chapters e.g.
each of which starts with:
%!TEX root = ../PRINTchap/2.tex
while the file PRINTchap/2 has only
so that if click on either EDITchap/2 or PRINTchap/2 just that chapter
gets typeset while if I click on Book.tex the whole book gets typeset.
