Why is "Enable GPG key signing for commit" is greyed out?

Pretty straight forward. Why is this checkbox greyed out?Screen Shot 2016-10-30 at 5.00.28 PM.png

I did. Do I have to update the GPG Program in my settings to point to GPG Tools?

Possibly. Did you install the tools to a different location?

I picked the default location. Looks like it put it in my Applications dir.

Turns out I had installed GPG tools, it said it had a key in the control panel thingy so I figured it was cool beans... but it turns out I didn't have a private key yet. So I clicked new, entered a password, jigged my mouse and keyboard some and it all came good.

Obvious. Yes.

I already had a private key generated, but I had to restart SourceTree for it to pick up that change. Worked fine after that.
