    How to switch on signature validation logging on Mac OS X

    smuehlst

      Hi,

       

      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:


      signature_logging_plist.png

      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

      JP2K: 1.2.2.35078
