Unfortunately, Prosper most likely will not work with TeXShop. The
reason for this is that Propser uses Latex to create dvi files which are
then translated into pdf files.  It includes graphical elements as
postscript.  TeXShop uses pdfTeX.  PdfTeX can include only pdf and jpeg

Maybe we can get Fr?d?ric Goualard to create a pdfTeX compatible version.

I have my doubts that Prosper will work well with Textures since only
Textures implements only a subsset of pdf functions.  Even then it is
likely that the Prosper macros will need to be modified.

I have tried neither Prosper with TeXShop nor with Textures, but would
be interested to get it working with TeXShop.
