[OS X TeX] TexShop hanging

Thanks Herb; it is unfortunate to hear that this is a persistent problem that has not been resolved. I have quit and restarted TeXShop, I have restarted the Mac, I have tried on machines with 64GB memory thinking that my big project might be causing problems, but all to no avail. As I noted, I can run the same document without problems (consistently) on texstudio but I’d rather not go there.

I have a hard time sending you the Projet files I am working on now, because the project is a big book and with a number of included files going up to 600 pages.

I guess I’ll have to grin and bear it...

If that doesn't make things better maybe you can send the document file(s) to Dick Koch or Me and we can see if it happens (with any consistency) on our systems.
