Cannot import or verify text files

GPG Suite

I can import keys using the fingerprint - but I can't import keys or verify signatures from a text file. I'm using Text Edit, and I've tried .ASC and .TXT formats. I'm using Mac OS 10.13.6 and I downloaded the latest version of GPG suite today 09/12/2020. When I try to import the key from a text file I get the error message "Import Failed Code = 0"

Are you using any other plugins?

    Hi khalidsmith23,

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

    Could you please attach the public key txt file so we can try to reproduce the problem. Visit this discussion in your browser and attach from there:

    All the best,
