Curiouser and Curiouser: the window which opens when I open the source file using sync (i.e., command-click text in the pdf) from within TeXShop is headed <filename>-Locked, and is blank. I can't get info on it from within TeXShop. When I click on "locked" I get a pulldown which invites me to unlock (which gets prevented, as described earlier) or to duplicate. If I duplicate, I get a second window, called <filename>copy, which is also blank. Can't get info on it, either. But if I go to Finder and go to the source file
where it lives (on dropbox, which might be the problem), then I can get information, and I can open it as a window which contains text, and which I CAN unlock.
So what is going on here? Looks to me like a sync problem or a TeXShop 3.06 glitch.

According to the "New Features" item on the Texhsop/Lion web site, a file which has been locked can be unlocked by clicking on the word "locked" at the top of the file window. But when I did this just now on a file, I got a box saying that this file cannot be unlocked, but I can duplicate it and edit that. If I do so, will that automatically become a replacement for the old one?---this file is one of many in a book project, all relating to a different project root. Or is there a way to unlock even when I get that error message?
I am running 3.06 on a new iMac.
Hmmm... I haven't gotten that when opening old files; have always seen the Unlock choice. I'd do a Get Info… on those files and see if you have them locked there and if the ownership and permissions are set correctly for those files.
