Hi There,

I use GPG Tools Version 1.3.3 (1150997) (1334n) on my MAC to decrypt using the Services menu.

I usually copy PGP code from the TOR browser to NOTES it works great the first time but I almost always have to reboot my MAC to get it to work again. It just nothing the second time round. Any ideas?

Many thanks

    Hi Pete,

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

    Could you update to the latest nightly from and see if that changes anything for the better or worse.

    The behavior you describe is a bit curious. What happens if you encrypt and decrypt some sample text in TextEdit several times after a restart? Does that work as expected?

    All the best,
