No

The capital 'i' (and the capital 'o' to a lesser extend) are causing frequent headaches. With many fonts it's nearly impossible to distinguish it from lower L (resp. from zero '0'). It would very nice to simply omit those char in auto-generated passwords. It weaken a tiny bit the password, but having people struggling with passwords also weaken the security as well.

    You already can configure this e.g. by enabling the option 'Exclude look-alike characters' for the auto-generation profile. See
    http://keepass.info/help/base/pwgenerator.html#configauto
    for details how to edit the profile.

    Best regards

    You shouldn't need to read the password. KeePass has plenty of ways to enter the password without you reading and typing.

    cheers, Paul
