If, like me, you applied the changes suggested in this list to  
TeXShop, but still did not get TeX document previews, I have a  
solution which may help some of you - if, like me, you installed the  
EPSQLPlugin so you could also get previews of eps and ps files.

It seems that the EPSQLPlugin interferes in an undesired way. Here's  
what I did to fix it on my machines:

Open the info.plist file inside EPSQLPlugIn.qlgenerator.
and save.

The do all the black magic stuff like
qlmanage -l
touch EPSQLPlugIn.qlgenerator
log out, log back in.

Disclaimer: this is blind hacking and I don't really know what I am  
doing here - but it worked for me.

Best wishes
