The BBEdit version of Flashmode works with TexShop as previewer. It
requires an intelMac and OS 10.5.x or better.
To install Flashmode, please follow exactly the instructions for the
original Flashmode version for TeXShop, especially arrange the pdf and
text files in TeXShop to your liking. The position of the tex file in
BBEdit should correspond to the position of the file in TeXShop.
Using TeXShop as previewer requires that the tex file is also open in
TeXShop. This will be automatically arranged by Flashmode. The copy of
the tex file in TeXShop will also automatically be refreshed such that
its content is always identical to that of the original file.
Syncing between the preview window and the source file should be done
in TeXShop including any editing that results from it. The tex window
in BBEdit will automatically reflect these changes.
The additional Applescripts provided by Flashmode still target TeXShop
as editor, but they can be applied to any tex file open and frontmost
in BBEdit provided the file is also open in TeXShop.
Please, note that only the ten standard Flashmode applets are tailored
for BBEdit. The alternate versions still target TeXShop.
Flashmode and its applets are universal Intel applications, i.e., on a
64-bit capable intelMac they will start up in 64-bit mode, otherwise
in 32-bit mode. The latter mode can also be manually chosen via the
The three alternate applets are pure 64-bit applications, they won't
start on a 32-bit computer.
