I truly was not expecting this and am a bit overwhelmed. I mean, I
have been picking from my ever expanding list of macros for many
years and lived to tell the tale. It's just that I suddenly thought
"Wouldn't it be nice if ...." and indeed "was wondering" and fired the
post while taking a break from the Magnum Opus. Even if, somehow, it
doesn't work, thanks very much for considering the matter.
Somewhat embarrassed regards
P.S. I just checked ~/Library/TeXShop/Macros and indeed found:
Macros_Context.plist Jul 3, 2011, 12:18 PM
Macros_Latex.plist Yesterday, 11.11 AM
as well as
Macros_Latex~.plist Yesterday, 11.10 AM
(No idea how this last came to be.)
