Feature request: Record custom keystroke sequence.

Background: In addition to password management, I use Keepass to pan & zoom in an applications by sending relevant keystrokes sequence that I have input by hand in Keepass 'Edit Auto-Type Item' window.

This allows me to quickly zoom on pre-defined areas of interest depending on the document name shown in the window title.

Implementation proposal:

  1. In Keepass 'Edit Auto-Type Item' window, add a 'Record keystroke sequence' option that will start recording key strokes until the user stops the recording process by clicking on a button. This concept is similar to Excel macro recording function.

  2. After stopping the recording process, the user should still be able to modify the sequence by hand in order to add delays or other actions that can't be recorded by the 'Record keystroke sequence' option.

I will try to develop a plugin for this feature but I cannot promise by when :-)

Is that a reasonnable request or should I drop Keepass and focus on other key logger software with good key stroke sequences management as Keepass has ?

Cheers,

Fabien

    I would try out AutoIt and see if it fits the bill. We know that this can be integrated with KeePass - see KeeForm.

    cheers, Paul
