    Hi all,

    Has anybody successfully used the "ALT+SPACE n" Windows shortcut (KeePass: "% n") in the auto-type sequence in order to minimize the targeted application window?

    KeePass V2 does not seem to treat "% " as expected: "%" (Windows: "ALT+") is just ignored.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Works for me.
    Using the Auto-Type sequence "% n".
    I set a target window sequence to match the required application.
    Note: this probably won't work for KeePass itself as it doesn't like typing into itself.

    cheers, Paul

    Thanks for your reply Paul.

    The application I mentioned here above is TrueCrypt portable (encrypted container) - through its GUI.

    It works for me as well if
    1. I set up a KeePass test entry with "% n" only;
    2. I split the complete auto-type sequence into 2 independent KeePass entries: password and minimizing shortcut;
    3. I do it manually by entering ALT+SPACE n just after the (correct) password auto-type sequence.

    It does no longer work if I merge both sequences, with or without delay (up to 5000ms) between them.

    Weird, isn't it?

    Regards,
    Etienne

    What window are you minimising?
    How do you start the Auto-Type process?

      What window are you minimising?

      The main TrueCrypt window, once the password child window is closed.

      How do you start the Auto-Type process?

      CTRL+U to launch TrueCrypt (which gets the focus), then ALT+TAB to switch back to KeePass and finally CTRL+V. I do this way to avoid further conflict between different TrueCrypt entries.

      It looks like in the minimizing sequence "% n" (that does work fine alone!), the "%" is not taken into account: " n" is "correctly" inserted at the cursor position in the TrueCrypt main window.

      Regards,
      Etienne
