I hope I am posting this in the correct forum...

In the Keychain Key Info/Inspector.... in the SubKeys Tab... how do I know/see the characteristics of each of the subways? i.e. which is for signing / decrypt etc

    Hi Luis,

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

    Double-click the key you want to know the subkey capabilities of in GPG Keychain. Then select the Subkey tab and look at the capabilities field.

    Let me know if this worked.

    All the best,
