#1644 per entry auto-type hotkey


It would be wonderful to be able to assign an auto-type hotkey to an individual password entry. The use of this entry-specific hotkey would differ only slightly from how the global auto-type hotkey works. The main difference is that the entry lookup would not be needed. I would like to invoke the entry's specific hot-key from within the target window and have this trigger the auto-type sequence for only the specific Keepass entry.

Justification: I have 1 or 2 username/password combinations that get used in an unlimited number of different URLs, windows, and applications. I often need to type a different username/password into the same terminal window/RDP session depending on what I'm trying to do. A per entry auto-type hotkey feature should make a nice shortcut for people with the same scenario.

For (4) examples:
- to auto-type my own Windows active directory credentials into the current window (username/password): Left CTRL + Left ALT + W
- to auto-type my own Unix LDAP credentials into the active window: Left CTRL + Left ALT + U
- to auto-type the Administrator's active directory credentials into the current window: Left CTRL + Left ALT + 1
- to auto-type the Unix root password into the current window: Right CTRL + Right ALT + 1

    There are at least 2 ways to do that now.
    1. Bring KeePass to the front, right click on the entry you require, select Perform Auto-Type.
    2. Set the target window filter of both entries to match the RDP window and KeePass will offer both credentials when you press the global Auto-Type hot keys.

    cheers, Paul
