Hi Dick,

Thanks! Yes, by the steps:
TeXShop > Macros > Program : latex

TeXShop inserted in the file:

% !TEX TS-program = latex

I still need to select:

Typeset > TeX and DVI
and then run Typeset

I'm thinking: there should be similar, but more complicated, code to place
in the file, to get automatical Typeset via [Typeset > TeX and DVI],
without me selecting it :)

Best Regards,
