Thank you Herb, it works perfectly.


>> Hello,
>> every once in a while one has to trash the aux files because something got corrupted. And this is easily done in TeXShop from the File menu or Cmd+Ctrl+A. But this deletes everything except .tex and .pdf files. I would like to keep the .ind file as well. How do I remove it from the "Delete aux files" list? 
>> (I know that with 'defaults write TeXShop OtherTrashExtensions -array-add "foo"' I can _add_ the .foo extension to the list, but is there a "remove" variant?)
>> Namely, I am writing a book in Croatian having an 18 page long Index. Since Makeindex is an ancient program not knowing anything about Unicode and in Croatian there are 8+8 graphemes (letters) which are not ASCII, the sorting of many index entries is wrong. So I have to tweak the .ind-file every time the aux files are trashed, which becomes quite tedious.

> Howdy,
> Got to my download site, <https://herbs.github.io>, and grab DeleteAuxFilesMacros.plist.zip. Unzip that file. Then Open TeXShop and the Macro Editor (Macros->Open Macro Editor?), Click on Macros->Add macros from file?, drag the .plist file onto the dialog and and press Open. That will get two macros, one that deletes all ``aux'' files and one with a limited delete. If you edit the limited delete macro you'll see a list of extensions to delete. Remove anything you wish to save that's on that list. From then on you can use that macro.
