I recently got myself a new laptop, MacBook with Ventura 13.1, and I installed LaTeX on it. I have no problem saving and compiling .tex documents that I have transferred over from another computer, however, when I try to create a new document, the editor (TexShop), refuses to save the documents, and it refuses to compile them. I get no error messages or anything, nothing happens. Worse, when I try to close the editor, nothing happens still. When I force quit TexShop and reopen it, the unsaved documents suddenly appear.

It seems to me that this probably has something to do with the fact that I have never specified a default location for TexShop to save new documents to, but I am unable to figure out how to solve it.

Any and all help would be immensely appreciated.

No idea what the problem was, but I was able to solve it by uninstalling and re-installing TexShop. Hope the problem doesn't occur once more.
