I am trying to debug the error in the path (a relative path that needs to climb up and down in the file hierarchy) but TS gives me only a partial view of the path it reads. Is it possible to find out the complete path TS attempts to use?

Now that I tried it I see that it's a Notification from TeXShop you are talking about rather than a TeX error.

Why don't you use a full path to the root file in the TeXShop root directive rather than a relative path? Open up the root document and Cmd-Click on the Window Title (i.e., the document name) and you'll see a complete path.

Good Luck,
