Sorry, my mistake. To be honest, to achieve what you want within the
file system would require substantial rewriting of the various
applications code, or...
Perhaps one could write a package along the lines of the
\graphicspath command that is part of graphicx?
TeXShop is only a previewer for TeX/LaTeX and uses the typesetting
system to produce documents. As such, whatever file is processed
needs to run with the typesetting system. Whatever you do at a
TeXShop program level is likely to produce errors with specific
packages and programs.
