Since I have no cross-references, no bibliography and, since I mostly  
work on single chapters, no index until I am done with the whole book,  
the only thing Latexmk could do for me is to generate the full toc and  
the chapter tocs. However I have become curious to see it at work.

Unfortunately, after I moved the "pdflatexmk.engine file from ~/ 
Engines/Inactive/Latexmk/ two folders up, to ~/Library/TeXShop/

I still don't see "that pdflatexmk in now in the popup menu"

Moreover, even though I inserted the fateful

% !TEX TS-program = pdflatexmk

at the top of my source file, I still need to typeset twice manually  
in order to see changes in the toc and chapter tocs.

The only thing I can think of is my particular file structure:

---In folder "Text-contents" I have file 2.tex

	%!TEX root = ../Text-controls/\jobname.tex
	\chapter{The Basic Ideas}
		Some text

---In folder "Text-controls" I have file 2.tex:

	% !TEX TS-program = pdflatexmk

What am I missing?

Puzzled regards
