MacTex 2021 update…and I'm in a foreign land

Not sure if I’m correct, but the MacTex 2021 update seems to require my (MultiMarkdown / Memoir Class?) leader.tex, begin.tex and footer.tex metadata files somewhere that they are not?

Used to be at: /Users/John/Library/texmf/tex/latex/mytex

Now, the tex/latex/… structure is empty and I’m getting lots and lots of errors when I compile from Scrivener and typeset in TexShop. My lovely workflow is now working against me!

Help and advice appreciated … however, after several difficult hours of de-bugging, I’m off to sleep, so won’t be able to respond to any suggestions until the 'morrow!

Ok… I think what happened is that the latest version of TexShop switched the Typesetting default command setting to ConTeXt, from XeLaTeX! Thanks MacTex!! Other issues to resolve, but at least I’m no longer in the foreign land I entered by mistake!
