update password dialog becomes unusable

Reported by steve | January 25th, 2018 @ 10:49 AM

macOS 10.13.3, GPG Suite 2090n


  1. change password for existing key
  2. unlock key by entering current pw in pinentry
  3. enter new pw
  4. tick "show" option to show password


Repeat PW can not be selected by clicking into field or tabbing


Since the dialog can not be finished the repeat pw field needs to stay usable.

Additional thoughts

Currently when changing a password for an existing key, the user first needs to unlock the key by entering the current pw and then a separate dialog opens allowing to enter the new password. This may have to be discussed with gnupg so it is fixed upstream.


  1. both dialogs should be combined into a single dialog
  2. texts should be improved
    • passphrase → password
    • Enter passphrase → Enter new password (the three items would be 1. Old password 2. New password 3. Repeat new password)
