Assistance with electronic signature

Hello,

Could you please assist me with the below case:

I need to sign documents in Libre office writer on my Mac machine. However when you go to File > Digital Signature > Digital Signature the signature is not appearing. However this works on the browser. All certificates are installed on the Mac. We use StampIT ( [ https://www.stampit.org/bg/page/795 | https://www.stampit.org/bg/page/795 ] ).

Could you assist in solving the issue?

Thank you in advance.

Best Regards

Hi Teodora,


Pretty certain that digital signing in LO is badly broken on macOS
without recourse to some special manual command line magic, or modifying
the app's Info.plist file, and has been for at least 2 years. Like many
other fancy options announced with fanfare with each release, the macOS
version of LO is often the poor cousin without the corresponding
functionality.

I'm not a Mac user myself, but according to Jack Wallen at *Tech Republi*c (
https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-sign-libreoffice-6-documents-with-gnupg/),
if one has installed a PGP tool for MacOS (he suggests GPG Suite), one can
sign documents by following the procedures outlined in the article....

Good luck - and please report back on your experience !...

Henri

Can the OP use GPG?  Or do they need X.509?  Typically, X.509 is used
between businesses.

And therein lies the problem :

Until people have actually tried it on macOS and found that it doesn't
work without some very particular user-unfriendly command line fiddling
and Info.plist modification which causes LO to then refuse to start,
well, they should do their research, sorry.
