I thought I would post my solution to this problem as I couldn't find this
particular answer anywhere. The problem was not with TeXShop but with
corrupted permissions on my .Trash file. As a result every time I tried to
move anything to trash MacOS would say it need to be deleted immediately and
I had to click OK to do that. I guess TeXShop was somehow getting this
behinds the scene and not being able to deal with it. Which is fine of
course. Not sure I would want a programme overriding a dialogue like that.
The solution I found seems to be to delete the .Trash and log in and out at
which point a new one with correct permissions is created. I did that in
Terminal. Probably better people look this up themselves than take my
amateur advice on how to use the remove command with Terminal.
