[OS X TeX] TexShop macro problems on Mojave

Yesterday I was involved in other matters and just skimmed this thread.

Maybe I can help and maybe not (to paraphrase the President). TeXShop has two ways to run Apple scripts. It can run them directly from TeXShop and it can run them from a second (internal) app called ScriptRunner.

To modernize applescript for Mojave, an extra item needs to be added to the program's Info.plist. This item is a string which will be placed in the dialog asking for permission to do security-related applescript tasks. 

This item has been in TeXShop's Info.plist since version 4.08. However, it is NOT in Script Runner's Info.plist. I just fixed this in the sources, but the fix is not in 4.17. So on Mojave, an Applescript which uses ScriptRunner might run into trouble.
