After installing the new TexShop beta 5 the macro editor doesn't show
What did I do:
Installed the new beta of Texshop, before opening it the first time I
renamed my macros-folder and template-folder.
Then I opened the TexShop_beta5, and those folders where recreated.
I have set up some shortcuts for the macros and wanted to recreate
them. The window of the macro-editor is empty even though the macros
are shown on the menus (and work).
Anybody else seeing this?
MacBook Pro 2.33 10.4.8 German system, using gwtex via Mactex
installer (about two weeks old will update when I find the time)
Any ideas? Hints? Requests for logfiles?
