i have not had need to encrypt anything for about 8 months. I have just had the need to do so again and now the suite does not seem to work. I have uninstalled it and reinstalled. I am trying to encrypt a piece of text from a text file. Every time i do so the procedure freezes. On one occasion it bought up the menu which asks which key I wish to use. I have been back through and have made sure the short cuts are correct etc. I

Like i said, I haven’t encrypted any text since the turn of the year. The above glitch seems to happen when i try to encrypt files too, so it isn’t a problem with the text editor. My apologies, as i have no doubt demonstrated i am only semi crypto literate.

Any ideas warmly received, thank you

    Hi Tommy,

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

    This is a known issue which is fixed in the nightly build.

    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,
