GPG Services: No Option on right-click to Decrypy Text

This is my first foray into PGP. I have a simple public key text I need to decrypt. I believe I've set every up fine. When I paste it into TextEdit, save as a .txt, and right click, I see Decrypt File, but how to I decrypt a message/text? I know Decrypt file is the wrong application in this case.

    Hi killerving,

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

    Not sure I understand the task "public key I need to decrpyt". But if you are asking how to use GPG Services - the following two Knowledge Base articles explain how GPG Services is used:

    • KB explaining how to encrypt and sign text or files
    • KB explaining decryption and verification

    All the best,
