I've explored other questions but they seem to involve coding. I'm looking specifically for the order of options in the drop-down menu (no coding).

I have TeXShop version 4.44 for Mac, which has a typesetting drop-down menu. For example, when I need to include a bibliography, this is the order of typesetting I use:

1. LaTeX
2. BibTeX
3. LaTeX
4. LaTeX

My options in the drop-down menu are as follows:

I now need to incoporate a glossary into my final PDF. What order of compilation should I use? I've tried several orderings including pdflatexmk, but it hasn't worked yet.

EDIT in response to a comment:

In my main file, I have:


%Make the glossary - following 3 commands.
\renewcommand*{\glspostdescription}{} %Gets rid of the period after the glossary definition, I think.


After loading some other files, I have:

% _________

%The \printglossaries command indicates the glossary.

%Print the glossary

    What package are you using for the glossary? Are you using a custom extension for you glossary files? – Herb Schulz Dec 31 '19 at 20:44
  • @HerbSchulz please see the edit? – StatsSorceress Jan 1 '20 at 16:04
  • Hmmm... At first glance I see no reason why using TeXShop's pdflatexmk engine didn't complete the full run and create the final output. Please place the the TeXShop directive line % !TEX program = pdflatexmk at the top of your file and typeset using Typeset->Typeset (Cmd-T). Let me see the Console output if that doesn't work. – Herb Schulz Jan 1 '20 at 19:02
  • The output the second time was: Latexmk: This is Latexmk, John Collins, 18 June 2019, version: 4.65. Latexmk: All targets () are up-to-date – StatsSorceress Jan 1 '20 at 20:05
