Add Github remote to GitKraken

I'm using GitKraken (v. 1.4.1) as my Git managing tool. And now I want to use Github as a remote to back up my repos. But when I click on add remote and try to add a Github repo, it just says 'no match'

Gitkraken w/o Github

Does anybody know why this happens? (BTW: I'm using Windows 10, just in case that's relevant)

If GitHub is set with your account in GitKraken, you might need to create first an empty repo with the same name as your local repo.

That way, GitKraken can find a matching repo name in your GitHub account.

Or you could select "URL", and enter the right GitHub repo url directly there.
