    Hi Ces,

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

    Your screenshot does not show TextEdit, but it could be outside the visible area. Could you create another screenshot and make sure you have marked some random text in TextEdit before you right-click it?
