#1731 Different colors for letters and numbers in the password field

Andy L

Can there be an option to make numbers red, Capital letters black, and lower case letters have an underscore under them in the password field?

    How is that of value? A random password is always best as you don't need to remember it, KeePass does that for you.

    Sometimes I have to manually enter the password on another device, like on an xbox, or iphone, or a computer that does not have keepass on it. It's annoying to have to eneter a 25 char password, even more annoying when I have to enter it several times because it was hard to tell the difference between l and 1 or o and 0, etc.

    I copy passwords into Notepad and use the Consolas font to do that.

    I voted for this feature because it is very very useful!
    Andy, please also vote!

    My passwords are all random generated and once or twice a month I need to read such a password and enter it on a device where KeePass is not available.
    So I like this idea.
    Modification: lower case letters should be displayed in an additional color (maybe blue?)

    I'm using KeePass when accessing servers over RDP. Sometimes AutoType doesn't work, and even though I'm using Hack as font it can be a problem to distinguish O and 0. I might even download the source code and implement the functionality myself.

    If you do that, posting the modifications here under Tickets > Patches will allow Dominik to comment on your code and possibly add it to KeePass.

    cheers, Paul
