    Hi Paul,

    In my keepass setup, it seems global autotype (I re-mapped to Ctrl-Alt-K) doesn't work, only select entry -> perform autotype works. My setup is Windows 8, KeePass 2.23, RDCAutotypeAndTCATO 0.6.2.0. I also installed WebAutoType plugin, will it matters?

    Btw, I go though all the documentation in keepass website, including the autotype help page (http://keepass.info/help/base/autotype.html), so I know what I'm doing... :)

    Regards,
    Samuel

    Actually global autotype always works in all my passwords, on all webpages... only the one which needs to go though remote desktop doesn't work. Only "perform autotype" works as expected. Of course I don't use full screen mode in the remote desktop sessions.

    Regards,
    Samuel

    Remote Desktop is a known problem. You need to run it windowed and use the RDCAutotypeAndTCATO plug-in you already have.

    cheers, Paul

    Paul,

    So you mean I cannot use global autotype through even windowed remote desktop sessions?

    Regards,
    Samuel

    You can, via the plug-in. (Unless the latest RDP incarnation blocks even better than the old.)

    cheers, Paul

    The problem is that I cannot... I cannot use global autotype through a windowed remote desktop, and I have installed this plugin. Which is why I make this post in the first place.

    Regards,

    You can use Auto-Type to login to the remote session, but probably not to interact with programs in the remote session.

    cheers, Paul
