TexShop hanging

"M. Tamer Özsu"-2
I have had this problem off and on, but now it is really bad — almost every other run hangs in the middle of compiling. I am in 10.14.4 with TeXShop
4.27 and I am compiling using pdflatex. I have %% !TEX TS-program = pdflatexmk at the top of my file. I tried the same file using texstudio and it compiles without problems, so there is something in my TexShop setup probably. Any suggestions of what I can try?

Many thanks.

Howdy,

Sigh... This problem has been around for a while. Unfortunately there has never been a case that has been consistent enough to try to figure out what is going on. I've had it happen oncec or twice a month.

First try to Restart TeXshop. If that doesn't work try to log out and back in. Finally try to reboot. Oh, macOS is up to 10.14.5 so you might try that. If that doesn't make things better maybe you can send the document file(s) to Dick Koch or Me and we can see if it happens (with any consistency) on our systems.

Good Luck,

Thanks Herb; it is unfortunate to hear that this is a persistent problem that has not been resolved. I have quit and restarted TeXShop, I have restarted the Mac, I have tried on machines with 64GB memory thinking that my big project might be causing problems, but all to no avail. As I noted, I can run the same document without problems (consistently) on texstudio but I’d rather not go there.

I have a hard time sending you the Projet files I am working on now, because the project is a big book and with a number of included files going up to 600 pages.

I guess I’ll have to grin and bear it...

Re: TexShop hanging

Sangwine, Stephen J
Tamer,

How about using https://wetransfer.com/ to pass a ZIP file of your document
direct to Herb and Dick? It can handle 2GB.

Re: TexShop hanging

"M. Tamer Özsu"-2
Thank you for the suggestion Steve. I am not worried about the size, I am worried about the many included figures, etc that are in different folders in different places. I will need to organize them better before I pass this on to the publisher, of course, but I am not there and it will take me some time to get a fully compilable version. 

In any case, Dick indicated he won’t be able to look at this for a while and I am not sure that it is my file anyway as this seems to be a known case. If I have the problem on another easier-to-pass file I would be happy to do it.

Best.
