1) After the update to 2016.07, when I duble click a file to decrypt, the GPG Keychain window opens along with the pin entry window.
Before the update ony the pin entry window whould show.
Now, after the decryption is done I have to close two windows instead of just one.
Not that big of a deal, just a bit annoying.

2) I only use symmetric encryption for files.
This also means I have to uncheck "Add to recipients" and check "Encrypt with password" every time I want to encrypt.
Maybe the last option used could be remebered, or en option one could set as default?

    Hi stefan,

    1) Right-click on an encrypted file -> "Get Info" -> "Open with" and select GPGServices.
    Background info: The file extension *.gpg and *.asc can contain encrypted data or keys. If GPGKeychain is used to open an encrypted file, it will open GPGServices.

    2) I think that would be a good feature. We will have a look at this.

    Regards, Mento

    Hi Stefan,

    GPGServices does now remember the checkbox status of Sign | Add to Recipients | Encrypt with password. If you want to test the fix, please download our latest hotfix GPG Suite. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download.

    Should the problem persist, please do let us know and re-open this discussion.

    Should you see trouble using GPG Suite in the future, don't hesitate to get in touch and open a new discussion any time.

    Best, steve

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