TeXShop compiles nicely after the modification Richard recommended. However, when I click Cmd-Opt-o on the file name in the root file, it complains: "The document "..." could not be opened. The file doesn't exist." Needless to say, this worked perfectly fine before. Is there something obvious that I am not doing (again!...)

By default, Opt-Cmd-O points to the macrto "Open Selection", which has the path to kpsewhich set to "/usr/texbin". This macro is just one of a number that have this hard-coded path, which will break under El Capitan. This one is easy to fix---using the Macro Editor, change the line

property kpsewhich_path : "/usr/texbin/kpsewhich"


property kpsewhich_path : "/Library/TeX/texbin/kpsewhich"
