Hmm, an executable engine that contains

   osascript -e "tell application \"TeXShop\" to close window 3"

does nothing. An single AppleScript containing

   tell application "TeXShop" to close window 3

closes *all* windows (tex, pdf, console) of the current file.

So I think, this isn't already the philosopher's stone.

I remember that in earlier versions of MacOS (IIRC MacOS 7) was  
possible to press the record button in the AppleScript editor  
application, then one could make some actions in an other application  
and the editor has scanned these actions and brought them into the  
script. Finally one could click at the stop button and the new  
AppleScript were ready to run.

In TeXShop/MacOS X this workarround seems not to work, does it?

TIA and kind regards, Friedrich
