I'm having a problem getting the result I want with applescript and
TeXShop and I need some help. I'm trying to write a script to open a
pdf file in TeXShop and have it be frontmost. What I have right now is
(assuming that test.pdf is on my desktop):
tell application "TeXShop"
open POSIX file "/Users/goedde/Desktop/test.pdf"
set index of window "test.pdf" to 1
This works with two big exceptions:
(1) The resulting window doesn't have a toolbar, just a title bar.
(2) The window is frontmost but not active.
Does anyone know how to do this better/fix these two problems? This is
10.5.2 with TeXShop 2.14.
