Since you're using TeXShop the solution is easy; simply use the pdflatexmk engine. To do that place the line

% !TEX TS-program = pdflatexmk

at the top of you main source file. From then on simply using Typeset->Typeset (Cmd-T) will automatically run pdflatexmk, bibtex, makeindex, etc. as necessary to resolve all cross references, etc. If you need to use latex->dvips->ps2pdf substitute latexmk for pdflatexmk in the line given above. 

Good Luck,
Herb Schulz

I'm currently writing up my thesis and to get a completely typeset document I need to run LaTeX -> BibTeX -> MakeIndex -> LaTeX -> LaTeX. Is there a way of saying to TeXShop "do these in a sequence, only stopping if there's an error"?
