    Hi all,

    I've been using Keepass for a year now, it's fantastic! The only issue I have with it is that some websites request only certain characters of the password (for example "enter 1st, 5th and 9th characters of your password") and to do this, I have to expose the password, count the characters and enter them in the website manually. It'd be useful if there was a menu item where I can type in the character numbers and the app would copy on those characters to the clipboard, keeping the password concealed.

    If there is a better way to submit feature requests, please do let me know.

    Many thanks!

    Regards - Ed

    Look at the PICKCHARS placeholder. This is exactly what it intended for. It applies to version 2 only.
    http://keepass.info/help/base/placeholders.html

    Create a custom Autotype entry and use something like
    {TAB}{USERNAME}{TAB}{DELAY=500}{PICKCHARS:PAC Code:C=3}{ENTER}

    This requires a User name in the second field on the page followed by a selection of three characgters from a custom field PAC. Standard fields such as password can be used as well.

    The DELAY is because fields like this will often miss entries if there are too quick (500 is probably excessive but I have not been bothered to change it)
