I'd like to suggest a feature where if a form is accessed on the web or login details are required that the appropriate data is added to the field.
This functionality would be similar to RoboFill.
I would also like to see something like this. It would act like a simple script language like KeyWallet uses.
I have now used Password Safe a little more and realise that the 'auto type' feature goes some way to achieving my request.
However, I like the fact that RoboFill is a toolbar that is sensitive to the webpage and a single click populates the necessary data.
Auto type works fine for most situations, but there are some sites where the username/password are not in consecutive boxes, which will break auto type.
The one feature of keywallet that I like over PW Safe is that I can drag & drop an entry onto the first input box in a window and it will execute a recorded script, inserting the username and password with the appropriate tabs and other characters required. The script can be written manually or a 'recorder' will generate it. This would be a great enhancement to Password Safe.
Er, the autotype behaviour can be configured per-entry to skip over fields, enter other text, etc. See the "Customizing Auto Type" entry in the online help. Let me know if something's unclear.
I like the idea of dropping an entry on a field. Perhaps in a future version - thanks!
You can get username/password in non-consecutive boxes by adding an
"autotype:" directive in the notes section for that account.
Basically, add as many tabs as you need to get between fields:
This would enter the username, tab 3 times, enter the password,
tab 3 times, and type "enter".
There is a good description of this in the pwsafe help (press F1),
as well as additional options for autotype.
