I've noticed this issue too. I'm using TextMate 2.0-beta6 on OS X 10.9.5
with Skim as my preferred viewer as well, and I have the same behavior.
I've tried to uninstall and reinstall the Latex bundle but that doesn't
help. The first time I compile using TextMate and Skim with "Typeset &
View (PDF)", TexShop won't launch. It will start only after the second
Latex compile with "Typeset & View (PDF)". I haven't tried to fiddle
around with refresh_viewer.scpt or latex_watch.pl.

I'm running TextMate version 2.0-beta.6 on OSX 10.9.5. Skim is my preferred viewer
but every time I render a latex file I get not only the normal operation of Skim either
opening or refreshing but also TeXShop opens and displays a blank new file. I'm not
sure why this happens, Skim is the default in my preferences and I tried editing the
default viewer in latex_watch.pl but the behavior continues.
do you use “Typeset & View (PDF)” or “Watch document” to generate your files?
`latex_watch.pl` is only used in the second command.
One workaround that does stop this from happening
is to just delete the TeXShop commands from refresh_viewer.scpt.
My first thought was that my horrible AppleScript skills are responsible for your problem
:(. The command seems to work fine for me, although I see a small change in the Dock, it
grows and shrinks a few pixels, when I run the command. It could be that this growing and
shrinking is caused by TeXShop.
Unfortunately this is only a temporary fix, that
script keeps reverting to it's original version and then the behavior resumes. Maybe
textmate keeps updating the latex bundle after I change it? I'm not sure.
If you only change the content of the bundle inside the folder `~/Library/Application
Support/TextMate/Managed/Bundles/` then indeed the changes get overwritten every time the
bundle is updated.
Does anyone know what the issue is here?
Unfortunately in the moment I can only speculate. Can you please try to reset to defaults
) and check if the issue
remains? If yes: It would be really helpful if you could post steps to reproduce your
Or can anyone suggest a more permanent
A permanent workaround would be to uninstall the bundle inside the preferences and then
clone the Bundle from [Github](https://github.com/textmate/latex.tmbundle)
into the folder
`~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Managed/Bundles/`. You can do that by issuing the
following commands inside Terminal:
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Managed/Bundles/
git clone https://github.com/textmate/latex.tmbundle.git
After that you can change the content of `refresh_viewer.scpt` and they changes should be
permanent unless you install the bundle inside `TextMate` again. However, I really would
like to fix the issue. Has anybody else the same problems?
