Is it possible to synchronise only a subset of passwords between databases?

    I would like to maintain "two databases"

    DB1 - all passwords, on PC1
    DB2 - only has less sensitive passwords, on PC2

    Is there a way to do this such that I can add a less sensitive password to DB1 or DB2, and then synchronise DB1 and DB2 together? I seem to recall reading this is not possible.

    If not, is there a "way of working" which gives the same result? For example, I do not think I can merely delete sensitive passwords from DB2 because when I later synchronise, it will delete them from DB1.

    Any thoughts will be gratefully appreciated.

    I think careful reading of the forum has solved it ...

    1 Create "DB1 - Secure", and "DB2 - Other". Put both on PC1, and only "DB2 - Other" on PC2
    2 Install KeyAutoExec plugin and configure it to open both databases on PC1
    3 Maintain "DB1 - Secure" on PC1
    4 Sync "DB2 - Other" between PC1 and PC2.

    KeyAutoExec means that ctrl/alt/A opens and searches both databases on PC1, and finds the AutoType match for the active window from whichever database it is in.

    Unfortunately, while KeyAutoExec works fine to open multiple databases, it doesn't allow me to do what I really want.

    I always lock KeePass after 120 seconds to maximise security, and use AutoType to fill the User and password fierlds on a web page. The downside is that I need to enter my master password every time; the upside is that I can leave my PC without worrying "Is the password file still open?".

    I therefore need KeePass always to offer me DB1 when I use AutoKey. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any way to force KeePass always to open a specified database when AutoKey is activated - see https://sourceforge.net/p/keepass/discussion/329221/thread/2b2e9da6/
