11. How do I create a log file?

The log file is a useful tool for error analysis. It can be created as follows:

  • In the Windows File Exlorer, right-click on any file
  • Select "Convert with CIB pdf brewer" and then "General Settings"
  • Now click on "Extensions" in the menu and enable the log traces. Click on "View Traces" to open the path where the traces are located. Per default, the path to store is: C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\CIB software GmbH\CIB pdf brewer\Logs 
Log files can also be created for the installation process. For this purpose, the setup must be executed via CMD with the command /log="filename.txt". Further information in chapter Setup.
