Hi,

I've used the hidden setting to activate pgpInline:
$ defaults read org.gpgtools.gpgmail UseOpenPGPInlineToSend 1

But mails still aren't being signed inline :-(
I've tried with plain text and rich text mails.

    Hey ,

    welcome to the GPGTools community support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    This worked in my test.

    So you followed our KB-articlehttps://gpgtools.tenderapp.com/kb/gpgmail-faq/gpgmail-2-hidden-sett... and pasted ' defaults read org.gpgtools.gpgmail UseOpenPGPInlineToSend' into the terminal?

    If yes, could you send us a test mail including a link to this discussion so we can assign the testmail correctly.

    All the best,
    steve

    Hello Steve,

    thanks for looking into it.
    When I tried to reproduce the issue, my mails were suddenly signed inline.
    My Shell history shows me that I did not mistype the hidden settings earlier.
    Since then I rebooted my machine.
    I suspected that the settings might be cached, so I tested this by setting inline attachments to false.
    After that, my mails still were inline signed.

    I did some more tests to see what needs to be done so that updates have an effect. It is enough to exit mail.app and start it again.

    Sorry, I could have tried this before bothering you.
