This comment was split from the discussion: GPG Keychain: PGP key import does not import "Comment:" component, and we can't edit the comment after it is loaded.

I've generated a key pair with comment using GPG Tools, but after reading the posts I wish to remove the comment, but I can't seem to find where to do it.

    Hi Leandro,

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

    The only way to remove a comment is to add a new UserID without the comment using the same name and email as in the old UserID that uses the comment. Once that is done, you can revoke the old UserID.

    Let me know if this did work.

    All the best,
    Steve
