    Hey Kalle,

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

    Could you re-download the GPG Suite beta from our website, then run the uninstaller. After that re-install GPG Suite and restart your mac.

    Should the problem then be persisting, please send a debug log from your affected machine: Open GPGPreferences > Send Report. Check the box to "attach debug log". Since you already described your issue in this discussion, you don't need to add a lot of detail, but please do add the link to your existing discussion, so I can then merge your debug info with this existing discussion.

    All the best,
