I am using GPG Suite for Mac.


Additional info
Sir: I am using GPG Suite for Mac. My question is wouldn’t it be possible in a update to add to the settings menu the possibility to choose the location where to store the private keys. (USB stick etc.) (possibly separate those of the public keys to, not that important). with friendly regards
