Pressing the export button/key combination does nothing. Reinstalling/upgrading the app does not fix the problem. New key and import key functions work as normal

    Hi Tim,

    thanks for taking the time to report this problem.

    We are aware of macOS 10.15 Catalina developer releases. We connected this discussion with the corresponding ticket and will let you know as soon as we have a version ready for testing.

    It's hard to tell when there will be an official (beta) release of GPG Suite for macOS Catalina. But we linked your discussion with the corresponding ticket and will update you as we have news.

    As a workaround you can try to export the keys in question from Terminal.

    Hi Tim,

    this issue has been fixed. If you want to test the fix, please download our latest hotfix GPG Suite. That page also has Signature file and SHA1 to verify the download. Thanks for helping us test this fix.

    To install the nightly on macOS 10.15 Catalina, mount the dmg file, then right-click the "Install" option and select "Open".

    Should the problem persist, please do let us know and re-open this discussion.

    Should you see trouble using GPG Suite in the future, don't hesitate to get in touch and open a new discussion any time.


    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet, so bugs or crashes are to be expected.
