I've put up a modified copy of the Spotlight plugin that Dick ships with TeXShop for download at


No guarantees that this will work, but I'd be interested to hear of any problems. Install it manually in ~/Library/Spotlight, creating that folder if needed.

** Caveats **

1) Next time TeXShop ships with a Spotlight importer, you should manually remove this one!

2) It's not code signed, as I can't find an Apple recommendation on that.

3) It will not run on PowerPC systems
