KeePass Enhanced Entry View (KPEnhancedEntryView)
This is a plugin to KeePass <http://www.KeePass.info> to provide an enhanced entry view for the selected entry.
* All fields (standard and custom string) shown in a grid view
* Field values and, for custom strings, names, are in place-editable
* Easy to add new custom fields through in-place editing
* Protected (password) fields can be edited, or their value shown through the in-place editor
* Attachments can be dragged and dropped to and from files in Windows Explorer
* Metadata properties shown on a separate tab to details field
* Original textual entry view still available, through the "All Text" tab
* Multiple selected entries can be edited together to perform mass changes
Place KPEnhancedEntryView.plgx in your KeePass Plugins folder.
It is recommended, though not essential, to use Side by Side window layout; to do this go to
the View menu and choose Window Layout, then Side by Side.
If you are seeing no entry view at all, ensure that the "Show Entry View" item on the View
menu is checked.
Delete KPEnhancedEntryView.plgx from your KeePass Plugins folder.
To in-place edit a field value, double click on it, or select it and press Enter.
To rename a field, double click the field name, or select it and press F2.
To delete a field, select it and press Delete.
Drag and drop files from Windows Explorer into the Attachments pane to attach them.
Drag and drop files from the Attachments pane to Windows Explorer to extract them.
To rename an attachment, select it and press F2.
To delete attachments, select them and press Delete
To edit the Notes for an item, click in the Notes pane and start editing. It will
enter edit mode automatically. Edit mode is indicated by a sunken border. To exit
edit mode, press escape, or click anywhere outside the Notes pane. If you need to
re-enter edit mode and the Notes pane still has the focus, double-click it.
Other non-field information is available from the Properties tab, where the icon,
tags, and URL override properties are also editable.
To get back to the old textual entry view, select the All Text tab
All other operations are available through the context (right-click) menus.
Mass editing of multiple selected entries
Multiple entries can be edited simultaneously. If you make a multiple selection then
the entry view will show a combined fields list. Notes and Attachments can not be
edited on a multiple selection, but other fields can be. Where fields have differing
values, or are not present on all entries in a selection, they will be displayed
greyed with the text "Multiple Values". These cannot be copied or dragged and dropped.
You can still delete or edit them, but a warning will be given first as this will be
making a modification to all the selected entries, overwriting any value they already
had for that field. Adding new fields works normally, and will add the new field and
value to all the selected entries.
Where all entries have the same value for a field, that is displayed normally and
can be edited and deleted without further warning.
Note: Where a field, such as Password, is set to show hidden (as asterisks) then its
values are always considered different to each other. A hidden field will always be
shown as ******* and treated as having multiple values. This avoids the need to read
the values out of protected memory to compare them, and avoids information about the
hidden passwords from being revealed to an observer.
For example, if an entry with a known password was in a multiple selection with an
entry with an unknown password then having the field show differently depending on
whether the passwords were the same or not could leak the information to an observer
that the unknown password was the same as the known one, even though both passwords

Please use the SourceForge project page: <http://sourceforge.net/projects/kpenhentryview>
Bugs can be reported using the issue tracker, for anything else, a discussion forum is available.
Fixed bug where clicks were registered on mouse up without corresponding initial mouse down
Fixed bug where drag cursor was not displayed within the fields list itself
Last Access Time visibility now respects the UIFlags setting for KeePass 2.24 and above
Fixed bug with saving while editing notes.
Improved splitter behaviour - it is now possible to move the splitters so that any of the three
panels (fields, notes, attachments) is completely hidden. The positions of the splitters are
now persisted after closing and re-opening KeePass.
If KeePass is version 2.24 or later, hides the Last Access Time field (which is deprecated)
Added a password reveal button to the right hand edge of protected fields. Click this to
temporarily display the password in that field. Click again to conceal it.
Fixed bug where all custom fields may be displayed as hidden data (asterisks)
Added support for dereferencing field references.
In the rare case where standard fields are missing (usually from imported data), they are now
treated as blank.
Fixed crash that could occur when multiply-selecting entries that had missing standard fields.
Added multiple selection mass entry editing functionality
Disabled non-functional multi-select capability of fields
Added support for main window shortcut keys while the entry view has the focus
Added support for obeying the column value hiding settings (so Ctrl+H and Ctrl+J will now hide
and show the password and username, and custom fields will obey the hiding settings set in the
Configure Columns window). Note that KeePass (as of v2.22) will only allow you to set hiding
settings for columns that are set to be visible in the entry list.
Standard fields will not be immediately hidden when the value is edited to be blank. They will
be hidden next time the entry is viewed. To hide immediately, use the Delete Field context menu
Fixed crash when attempting to drag a blank value (blank values now simply can't be dragged).
Standard field hiding is now optional, see the menu item Tools, Entry View Options,
Hide Empty Standard Fields. It's turned off (no hiding) by default.
Fixed performance issue with large Notes fields
Fixed cosmetic bug where fields were slow to repaint when deleted or switched to or
from being protected
Enter key (as well as F2) can now be used on insertion row to start insertion
Updates the view less aggressively - the view will only be updated if the entry last-modified
timestamp has changed. This should reduce flickering, and prevent loss of edit mode on
Standard fields (Title, Username, Password, URL) are now not shown when blank. They can be added
using the insertion (add new) row in the same way as adding custom fields
Fixed support for cmd:// links (and any other non-standard links that were being mangled)
Now assumes that the contents of the URL field should always be treaded as a link, even if
it doesn't look like one. Other fields will only be made links if they look like URLs.
Added support for writing history entries when changes are made to entries
Added "Link" drop down menu to fields whose values are URL so that they can be opened in
Packaged as plgx instead of dlls.
Allow drag and drop of field values
Added "Open URL" to the context menu for fields which are URLs
Fixed bug where Protect Fields context menu command wouldn't actually make any change
Does not include KeeFox's "KPRPC JSON" custom field (as this is not intended to be
directly user editable or visible)
Fixed bug where editing a field value would not notify KeePass that a modification
had been made
