Keybinding for toggling encryption and signing?

I'm wondering if there is a way to bind some keymappings to the encryption and signing buttons? System Preferences gives you a way to bind any keyboard combination to a menu item, but I'm not aware of any menu items assigned to the GPGMail buttons. Is it possible?

If not, please consider this a friendly feature request! :)

    Let me know if that works for you.

    Thanks, but neither option-command-X nor option-command-Y work. Am I reading the table incorrectly or is this a bug in 2.7b3?

    Iirc there was a fix post b3.

    Could you please download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build and see if the problem persists. That page also has sig and SHA256 to verify the download.

    All the best,

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet - bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test.
