github load SSH key

Hi,

 

I've tried creating an SSH key to use with github but I can't get it installed in github. It keeps complaining about the format when I try to install the key. I have attempted to convert the key format by using the Conversions --> Export OpenSSH key but github still comppains about the format of the data in that.

 

Thanks in advance for any and all help resolving this!
