Dominik,

I suggest the following change is made to the page http://keepass.info/help/base/autotype.html
The change is preceded by ****


Text Basic Auto-Type Information

KeePass features an "Auto-Type" functionality. This feature allows you to define a sequence of keypresses, which KeePass can automatically perform for you. The simulated keypresses can be sent to any other currently open window of your choice (browser windows, login dialogs, ...).

By default, the sent keystroke sequence is {USERNAME}{TAB}{PASSWORD}{ENTER}, i.e. it first types the user name of the selected entry, then presses the Tab key, then types the password of the entry and finally presses the Enter key.
****Note: The cursor must be placed in the user name field for the default sequence to work correctly.

Invoking Auto-Type:
There are three different methods to invoke auto-type:

Invoke auto-type for an entry by using the context menu command Perform Auto-Type while the entry is selected.
Select the entry and press Ctrl+V (that's the menu shortcut for the context menu command above).
Using the system-wide auto-type hot key. KeePass will search all entries in the currently opened database for matching sequences.

All methods are explained in detail below.
****Note: The cursor must be placed in the user name field for the default sequence to work correctly.

cheers, Paul

    Good idea! I've added it, slightly extended.

    Thanks and best regards,
