hello! trying the password generator made me realize that the option of "ALSO INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERS" does not work properly.!!i tried to have the characters "lak" in my password but it seems that they do not all appear in every password that it has been generated!im working on keepass 2,windows 7.i ran the program chose 'generate password' from tools, i selected the criteria as they seem on the attachment im sending you and the program generated the password 'EaWNVETEkDPZCYRPVHSB'.

    The characters that you enter in the 'Also include the following characters' text box are included in the character set from which the password generator randomly chooses characters from.

    This means that these additional characters are allowed to appear in the generated passwords, but they are not forced to.

    If you want to force that some characters appear in the generated passwords, you have to use the pattern-based generation. For details, please see
