    How to switch on signature validation logging on Mac OS X




      I'm trying to switch on signature validation logging for Acrobat Pro DC according to the documentation here:


      Digital Signatures


      But I just can't get it to work. I edited the plist file $HOME/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Acrobat.Pro.plist with the XCode plist editor and added the LogFilePath and LogLevel settings as follows:


      The documentation of the LogFilePath entry says that the output file must already exist, so I created an empty output file. LogLevel 4294967295 is  "0xFFFFFFFF: all messages".


      I re-read the preferences as specified in the Enterprise Administration Guide:


      Macintosh Deployments — Enterprise Administration Guide

      defaults read $HOME/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Acrobat.Pro.plist


      Then I open a PDF that is signed and where the signature is validated by Acrobat. Nevertheless the log file always stays empty.


      What am I doing wrong?


      My environment:


      Mac OS X 10.10.5


      Acrobat Pro DC 2015 Release (Classic)

      Architecture: x86_64

      Build: 15.6.30096.160934

      AGM: 4.30.61

      CoolType: 5.14.5
