After Macbook re-install, also had to re-install GPG Tools which worked fine. I can import keys I had on file, but cannot import files from key server(s)

What did you expect instead

Successful import like before

    Hi Peter,

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

    Could you please download and install our latest hotfix GPG Suite and see if that solves your problem.

    All the best,

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet - bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test.

    Hi Steve,

    The problem was fixed today. As explained I had to re-install the tooling after laptop rebuild and ran into the issue. After restoring my original keys, I am now able to import keys again.

    Thank you for reaching out.

    Kind regards,
