Problem with End To End Encryption

In the Desktop App (Daily) the End to End encryption does not work. If you load the Encrypted folder and files into the folder, they will be shown in plain text under the command line display. Further you cannot open this folder in the Android app.
If you create a new account and first log in with the Android app and encrypt a folder, the files will not be displayed in plaintext, under command line view. If you then enter the passphrase in the desktop app, the whole thing will no longer work and the Android app will no longer upload the files to the encrypted folder.

In der Desktop App (Daily) funktioniert die End zu End Verschlüsselung nicht. Wenn man den Ordner Verschlüsselt und Dateien in den Ordner ladet, werden diese unter der Kommandozeileanzeige im Klartext gezeigt. Weiter kann man diesen Ordner nicht in der Android App öffnen.
Wenn man ein Konto neu anlegt und mit der Android App zuerst einloggt und einen ordner verschlüsselt, werden die Dateien nicht im Klartext angezeit, unter Kommandozeilen ansicht. Wenn man dann die Passphrase in der Desktop App eingibt, funktioniert das ganze dann nicht mehr ladet wieder in Klartext hoch und in der Android App funktioniert danach der Upload in den verschlüsselten Ordner nicht mehr.
