Which of our tools is giving you problems? Exporting with secret key.

Version 1.4.2 (1403)

Describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible.

After downloading the program, I registered as one should but it didn't give an option to add a key phrase before it is completed.

Once that done, I clicked on "Export" > tickets the include the secret key option

once I enter the key phrase it says it is "bad phrase key"
I have tried many sort of keys with number, lower and upper cases letters etc...

    I've managed to create a key with key phrase after downloading Enigmail on thunderbird.

    but the problem is that when i upload my public key to a website it gives this message:

    Error: Couldn't convert key in a readable format. Please take a look for 'comment' or 'version' - lines in your key, remove them and try it again.

    I simply coppied and pasted my public key
