I asked a basic question a couple days ago, and someone referred me to a previous post which solved the problem (kudos to you.. thanks) but this leads me to a couple more questions.
My previous question was that TeXShop would only typeset a latex file if it was in my Desktop directory, and the solution was to allow TeXShop full disk access under Privacy settings.
I noticed that: /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Library/TeX/texbin has been added to my $PATH.
Did this come from installing MacTex, or installing TeXShop?
(It seems this is still in my $PATH whether or not TeXShop has full disk access. Should this be the case?)
Also, just curious: is this full disk access an issue with TeXShop for the mac OS versions that come after Catalina?
Any help would be appreciated...
