better error message and steps to help users trying to Decrypt a public key

Reported by steve | February 24th, 2015 @ 01:32 PM


  • open public key in TextEdit
  • mark all
  • right-click > GPGServices: Decrypt


  • see screenshot: Decrypt failed! Code = 0"


In case of a public key, it would be nice to implement a check for that and then inform the user, that they are trying to decrypt a public key.

A public key has been detected in the selected content.

Do you want to import it?
