I was wondering whether there is a way to change the typeset hotkey in texshop for mac from CMD + T to something such as CMD + D. I have been looking for it but found no results, does anyone know of such a way?

    I believe that this needs to be done in Mac System Preferences: Keyboard/Shortcuts. Select App Shortcuts and then + to add. Select the TeXShop as the Application in the pop-up window, the Menu Title: Typeset (exactly as the TeXShop menu item) and select the Keyboard Shortcut. Mar 14, 2016 at 10:23

The procedure is

  1. go to System Preferences
  2. Keyboard
  3. Keyboard Shortcuts
  4. Application Shortcuts
  5. Click `+'
  6. Application = Tex –> TexShop
  7. I added command + R as Keyboard Shortcut for Menu Title = Typeset
  8. now just press command+R in TexShop to compile the full doc.

If you want to include bib, change it to Bibliography instead of Typeset. Restart TeXshop for any changes in the shortcut. :)

  • Oh, I didn't see the other comment! (New to the forum) I'll just delete my comment later because you're right it's just repeated. Sep 30, 2020 at 23:06
  • Actually it's good to have an answer, so rather than delete yours (comments aren't really answers) you can just fill in the details in yours.
