I meant "clicking on Typeset" of course (Sorry about that.)

Let me get this straight:

The button Typeset on the left of the source file and the Typeset  
command under Typeset in the menu bar are "identical" and Cmd T is  
their keyboard command. All of them get LaTeXMk to do its stuff, that  
is to compile twice.

The keyboard command Shift Cmd L prevents LaTeXMk from doing its stuff  
and compiles only once. But it is not the keyboard command of any  
button or menu command. Correct?

In any case, somehow, this C.I. (*) has a feeling that it should be  
the other way around: Cmd T just to typeset---once---and Shift Cmd L  
to call for LaTeXMk to do its thing.
