    I'm new to KeePass (and to password managers in general). As I start to assemble entries in my database and begin to use them, I come up against sites which don't ask for the whole password but require you to enter individual characters by hand.

    Is there a way around this?

    Is there a way around this?

    If the character selection page is the visible page when you initiate auto-type you can simplify the selection process by using the {PICKCHARS:Fld:Opt} placeholder. A brief description of the technique is at https://sourceforge.net/p/keepass/discussion/329221/thread/7a23cac1/#f3a4.

    KeePass does not interact directly with webpages so except for the limited situation above there is little that can be done, except vote with your feet.
