Given I'm no specialist on shell escape (I've never used it since we experimented with sips last year), I may as well be wrong. If there's more to answer, please correct me and I'll forward the correction to the Textures list.

Also in the updated latexmk engines is a new engine, sepdflatexmk, that does run pdflatexmk with shell escape for those few times you really need it.

> Now to my experience with TeXtures... I started to use PC TeX under DOS in the late 1980's and switched to using TeXtures on a Mac around the early 1990s. I then moved to Framemaker before Adobe bought it and announced that it would no longer support the Mac. Kept using my old version of Framemaker until I finally switched to OS X 10.1 in 2001 since I was seeing the light on the wall. Actually tried to use MS Word but every attempt to tame the beast broke something else and the defaults would take over. Searched around and found Gerben Wierda's TeX Re-distribution (via his i-installer) and TeXShop, returned to my old favorite TeX---although I switched from my personal macro set to LaTeX---and have never turned back.
