Can you give a minimal example of a file which shows this problem?  
Just trying to pin down what is causing this. Do you have a .bib file  
with your bibliography set up? Do you have a \bibliographystyle  
command set up? Do you have any \cite commands?

When you say downloaded, I assume you mean the LatexmkTeXShop.zip  
file. Hope that's correct. If you mean you downloaded the latest  
TeXShop 2.10beta8 and ``moved the Engine folder and (re)started  
TeXshop ...'' let me know.

The three engine files ((xe/pdf)latexmk.engine) should be in your ~/ 
Library/TeXShop/Engines/ folder. The four files, (xe/pdf)latexmkrc  
files and latexmk, should be placed in the ~/Library/TeXShop/bin/  

Then, to use latexmk to automatically run through the processing the  
proper number of times, add the line

%!TEX TS-program = pdflatexmk

(or latexmk or xelatexmk) at the beginning of the source file. when  
you Typeset (Cmd-T) the pdflatexmk (or latexmk or xelatexmk) engines  
will be executed and latexmk will use the proper commands, in the  
right sequence, the correct number of times to get (cross)references,  
the bibliography and index (if you have one) set up properly.

Glad to hear that.

Good Luck,
