    hi there,
    ctrl+alt+a doesnt work at all. when i press it nothing happens. also ctrl+v works only on few programs. on web it looks like username isnt inserted and password is inserted in username field.
    my option is all on default. i tried to delete config files both from instralation folder and appdata folder.
    no difference when i set string manually or leave it default. also when i set it manually as {USERNAME}{TAB}{PASSWORD}{ENTER} it only fills password into username fields on all webs... very strange

    any ideas what could be wrong? thanks in advance

    You need to have the cursor in the correct place before starting the Auto-type and you need a "title match" before the Global Auto-Type hot keys (Ctrl Alt A) will work.
    Have you tried the example Auto-Type in the Help?

    cheers, Paul

    thank you Paul.

    i tried Notepad example and it worked. however i didnt realize my cursor needs to be in corect field. now most of sites works. thank you. few like dont, but no big deal.

    also i wanted to ask how to setup this feature for programs. for example my poker client dont have any "title". i tried to add tags, but ctrl+alt+a didnt work. ctrl+v still works great.

    KeePass has a "window title viewer" that enters the window title for you.
    Edit an entry.
    Tools > Auto Type, select target window...

    Edit an entry.
    Auto-Type > Add

    Paul, when in KP 2.20 portable, Fx 17, I add an entry for a page (leave title blank), add PW, URL - then browse to site's login page.

    Click edit for the entry for the page, put cursor in title field, then click auto type >add > drop box shows "title" of page I'm on, that I click in drop list. Now the title is in the target window box. I even highlight that (one) entry, click OK.

    Takes me back to entry main window, but never enters the page title selected in above process into the entry's title field - remains blank. Thus, auto type won't work. Tried w/ a few sites - won't add page titles into KP. Must be doing something wrong?

    I confirm that since one week or 2, autotype feature isn't working anymore.
    My apps didn't change. My Keepass version and settings didn't change.
    But doesn't work anymore, doing weird thing like opening the "Save as" window with Notepad2-mod, whatever the sequence i put in the profile.

    Nope, KeePass won't do that. As I said previously, the title is for meaningful text, the Auto-Type target window allows specific window selection.
