    Is it possible to get different Groups to display different columns?
    i.e. Group1 displays columns A,B,D,E
    and Group2 displays columns A,B,F,G,H

    ver 2.23

    No, the columns displayed is a property of the Workspace.

    actually interested in this as well. Is there an extension that can enable this?

    What are your expectations for the display of search results?

    You could try the KPEnhancedEntryView plug-in. It's not quite what you want but it does show all of the fields in an entry in one place.

    My expectations would be a per-group configure column setting, falling back to the global column setting if one isn't defined.

    You can goto View -> Configure Columns to decide what the default columns are.
    If you goto a group's properties, you would be able to set what columns are displayed when looking specifically at that group.

    Ex. I have a group for my SQL connection info, and I have a group for my Internet logins.
    Internet group would show title, url, username, & password
    SQL group would instead show title, username, host, address, port

      Use the plugin "Entry Templates for KeePass"
      That allows you to make/use different templates for every new entry.
      Typically its used to make templates for Credit card data
      but I think it may also fit your need.
      Unfortunately your current entries will not be automatically shown in this format.

    Column view is per KeePass configuration, not per group. Making it per group would require the window details be stored in the database and there is no provision for that at present.

    thanks for the explanation. Is this something that could be added via plugin? or would it require a core rewrite of the basic operations?

    I'm sure you could do it in a plug-in, maybe storing the settings in an entry in each group.

    cheers, Paul

    guess it's time to start reading up on how to design a keepass plugin
