Which of our tools is giving you problems? (possible options: GPGMail, GPGServices, GPG Keychain Access, …)

[GPG Keychain Access]

What’s the version of that tool? (read the following knowledge base article to learn how to find a tool's version:

[version 1.1 (505)]

What version of OS X are you using? (e.g.: 10.8.4, 10.7.5)

[OS X 10.6]

Please describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible.

[I cant seem to use txtedit to encrypt files after I just downloaded the latest version today on 27July2013. When I try to encrypt I start the process of selecting the txt, right clicking and going to services>OpenPGP Encrypt and after checking the box to encrypt nothing happens? With the last version it would encrypt right away. Can you help, thanks for all your hard work ]

Please describe what you did expect instead

If you remember, please describe the steps leading up to the problem

    this is the error I get

    The “OpenPGP: Encrypt” service could not be used because the “GPGServices” application did not respond to a request for services.
