Can't copy/paste passwords

Can't copy/paste passwords

Postby gmalbert » 04 Mar 2012, 22:25

I'm using OSX Lion with KeePass X 0.4.3. I'm not able to get the program to copy either the username or password to the clipboard. I have tried using the icons, double clicking on the password, and even trying to drag and drop (which just crashes the program). I've tried to paste into a text editor, but there's nothing in the clipboard.

I didn't notice that this was a known issue, but I may be wrong. Can someone help, please?

works for me on lino.
One thing though, stuff from your notes doesn't copy on cmd+c in the overview, only when you open an entry for editing.

I have the same issue than @gmalbert are we doing something wrong? I'm using the version in windows and it works perfect, but it doesn't work as well on the Mac OS version I'm running Lion. and can give feedback if needed a more active participant. thanks!

Found a solution!!
Don't use the KeePassX 2.0 Alpha, that's the one that doesn't allow copy+paste and has a windows-like interface.
Better use the KeePassX 0.4.3.
Download from this link: http://www.keepassx.org/downloads/

Cheers, and thanks for such great app! :D

Wonderful. Thank you! Works now, but only using the old version of the database. Once the 2.0 version is up and running, I'll move again. Thanks for staying on this!

Even better, load from Global Autotype for OS X: at last! and get Auto-type as well.
