--throw-keyids or --hidden-recipient

I am using only the GPG keychain, no mail plugins.

Not very experienced with Terminal commands, I would like to use --throw-keyids or --hidden-recipient, to avoid that the keyid is part of the encrypted message.

I found this somewhere, but don't get it to work:

gpg -ea --throw-keyid --always-trust -r "keyID" sample.txt

Thanks for any help!

    Hi Andrew,

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

    This question is best asked at the gnupg users mailling list.

    All the best,
