Found it but it is of little help actually...
For example I found this on the tab "GPG for OpenPGP":

"Options controlling the configuration"
Default key

In all cases there was a dropdown to the right of the name saying "Do
not use option" or "Use custom value".
Then to the right of this and empty edit box with no indication on
what to enter or do....

In similar cases in other applications there would be a button to
click and then possibly a dialog box asking for the name of the item,
in this case the group. THen tghere would be a list of valid items to
choose from into this grouping. None of this happens with GPA. :-(

I really need to get some help in doing this properly.

Say that I have three public keys to my collegues that I want to add
into a simple to use group for encryption. What do I do in this
dialogue to make it happen?

And will the group now appear in my public key list when I want to
encrypt to someone??
