In TeXShop 2.36 Opt-Esc is now an additional shortcut assigned to Command Completion's Next Mark Menu Item when the Command Completion (CC) Expansion Trigger is Esc. However F5 still works.

Optionally you can either make the CC Expansion Trigger Tab in Preferences->Source or turn off the additional shortcuts completely (the regularly assigned shortcuts shown in the menu system still work) by executing

defaults write TeXShop CommandCompletionAlternateMarkShortcut NO

in Terminal while TeXShop isn't running. I'm used to the Ctl-Cmd-F so I've done that and then Opt-Esc behaves the same as F5.

Good Luck,
