Hi René,

thanks for your effort.  The command you proposed works as advertised but …

… that is  unfortunate.  I want to simplify my work flow by having to interact manually with just one program instead of two.

So I modified and extended your script a bit:
# This surfaces (or starts) TeXShop and typesets the current TeX doc there.
filename=`basename "${TM_FILEPATH}"`
osascript <<EOF
tell application "TeXShop"
  open_for_externaleditor at  "${TM_FILEPATH}"
  typesetinteractive document "${filename}"
end tell

Thanks again for pointing me into the right direction.
