Hi,

I am running wireshark on a mac and I am trying to enable g_log for wireshark. As stated here, https://wiki.wireshark.org/Development/Tips, I am trying to change the console.log.level to 252, however the console.log.level setting appears to be frozen and I am unable to change it. The navigation that I am following to reach this place is 

wireshark --> preferences --> advanced

I am trying to do this on the dev version and following are the environment details. Does someone know why this is not working
