Well, they will show up depending upon your input encoding. You are supposed to replace them by using the Next/Previous Mark commands to move and select them and replace them. When I go to the final • at the end of the environment I simply it return and it gets removed and a newline is entered. I like to isolate environments. And you can remove them by editing the CommandCompletion.txt file in TeXShop if you wish.

One note on that file... it is a UTF-8 encoded file so open it via that menu item but DON'T simply open it in TextEdit or all the • will appear rather strange and saving the file will mess it up.

Good Luck,
