Currently there is no possibility to add custom properties to a password that is about to be generated in "new" command such as length or characters range. Some services accept digits only passwords while some others take only short passwords. These settings could be remembered on the entry basis in the case will want to change a password.

Discussion

  • When released, version 2.5 will allow users to specify gNN where NN can be an integer in the range 1-50 that specifies the length of the password to be generated. This is likely as much of this request as I will fulfill because I don't want to overly complicate the password generation process in order to address small corner cases of sites that (badly) only allow a very limited set of characters.

    You might also want to have a look at the "w" (word) method of password generation that was added in version 2.4 as it may address some character-set restricted systems, if they accept a long length.
