Sorry for the added comment.

You can also let TeXShop know that you always want the file to be  
typset with LaTeX+Distiller by putting the line

%%!TEX TS-program = latex

at the top of the file. Then using Typeset->Typeset (Cmd-T) will  
automatically do the right thing.

I've added lines like that to all my templates and even defined a  
macro to add a line like that (engine to be filled in) so I can  
quickly add it to files I receive that don't have that line.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
