Bug 8881 migrated from Mozdev.org

While Enigmail 0.90.0 now has a brilliant key management interface, it is
lacking one basic function that urges even normal users without special needs to
use gpg command line, cut-n-paste and such: there is no function to print a
sheet of cards showing the keyid, fingerprint, subkeys and user IDs such as the
output of "gpg --fingerprint /keyid/".

As I don't know whether it is possible at all to compile a page to print, a
workaround would be to create a text file containing the fingerprints of all
selected keys.

If you open the key details, you'll find the key fingerprint. The fields in
that
dialog are seletable, and the content can be copy&pasted.

Can you further explain what would be the purpose of such a list ? I am
guessing
this would be used to facilitate verification in keysigning events. If that's
the case, maybe a tool to generate verification sheets could be considered for
implementation. Tx. in advance for clarifying this.

From http://www.dclug.org.uk/linux_doc/gnupgsign.html#start (or similar pages):
"Obtain a printed copy of the fingerprint".
