S/mime Dropdown menu not enabling S/Mime

sometimes I need to sign my emails with S/MIME and not with GPG.
Currently, with GPGTools installed, all outgoing mails are signed with GPG regardless of the setting of the dropdown in the „New Mail“ dialogue.
If I set the dropdown to OpenPGP, the mail is signed with GPG. And if I set the dropdown to S/MIME, the mail is also signed with GPG.

The mail should be signed with the S/MIME certificate, if the dropdown has been set to S/MIME.

I got the latest version installed and S/MIME valid Keys Installed.

    Hi Rick,

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

    This is indeed a known problem already fixed in our hotfix release. The fix will be part of the next stable release.

    Glad this is already solved for you. I'm closing this discussion. Should you need further assistance or have questions you can re-open this discussion here or open a new one any time.
