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!

With a little more diligent googling I found the answer. My problem was that I was saving the public key and trying to paste that into github. You have to just copy the text of the public key from the key gen window!
