I already use this command frequently, whenever there is a compilation
error to fix. But I tend to compile (cmd-shift-L) almost every 30
seconds, having to hit another shortcut every time as well is not
My beef with the all the aux files is that they make it more difficult
to find files in the Finder. Maybe if there were a preference in the
Finder to hide all files with certain extentions...
Whoever comes up with a bullet-proof solution for this, deserves
praise. Ideally such a solution could be worked into TeXShop itself.
