Invalid base ssh key Error message when adding ssh key on droplet creation.

I have created a public and private key using Puttygen. I added public key to digital ocean. I then create a droplet and select the saved ssh key. When I then select to create the droplet I get an error message.

The error message is “ Invalid Base SSH Key”.

Can someone advise please?

Thank you

Colin

PuTTYgen adds a comment to public key file near the end which looks like this rsa-key-20180826. You may need remove it.
