Hi Christopher,

No, the registry patches I created will only work in Windows. I'm not a Mac guy so I can't help you with implementing this on a Mac, I'm afraid... Maybe someone else can help.

So I did a bit of research, and it seems that the equivalent location of the registry settings on a Mac is plist file, located here:

Users/<user name>/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.<product name>.plist

There's more information about this here:

And about FeatureLockdown here: http://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/MacWiz/lockdown.html

So based on that I created the following XML pattern that should disable the echoSign Signature Detection feature.

I want to stress that using this code or making any other changes to the registry settings is done 100% AT YOUR OWN RISK and is YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY, and that the code below is NOT TESTED and is NOT GUARANTEED TO WORK.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
    <key>11</key>
    <dict>
        <key>FeatureLockdown</key>
        <dict>
            <key>cServices</key>
            <dict>
                <key>bEnableEchoSignDetection</key>
                <false/>
            </dict>
        </dict>
    </dict>
</dict>
