I want to generate a new key pair but there is no more passphrase to create next to the password and all the options
And then when i try to decrypt something, the software needs it ?? But how can i know it ?

Using Version 1.4.6 (1514) on Mac OS x

Thank you very much for your help

    Just added a screenshot.

    This sotfware is complete non sense if you can't create a passphrase with the key

    Hi Boris,

    since we have found that "password" is a much more relatable term for most people not familiar with GnuPG, we have renamed "passphrase" to "password".

    We would be very curious to know what you believed the "password" field otherwise referred to?

    Not at all, we realize that this was a possibility.
    But glad this is solved for you now :)
