If you're using a TeX front end, you can lobby the developer to  
include the feature.

It's only possible by modifying BibDesk.  It was removed for good  
reason, so you're totally on your own as far as installing the plugin  
or debugging any breakage it causes.

Assuming you manage to install the plugin, you can edit ~/Library/ 
Preferences/net.sourceforge.bibdesk.inputmanager.plist by hand.   
Here's an example if you don't have the file already.  Replace  
com.apple.Xcode with whatever application you want, or add more  

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd 
<plist version="1.0">
	<key>Application bundles that we recognize</key>
