I like to keep my work-related passwords in one file and my personal in another (mainly because I want to keep my personal stuff on both my home and work computers but my work stuff only on my work computer). So I'm always switching back and forth between these two files. Even though both files have the same passphrase, I have to reenter it each time I switch.

It would be wonderful if Password Agent would try to open the new file using the passphrase of the currently open file. If it fails, it prompts just as it does today. But if it succeeds, it opens the file without prompting you at all.

Yeah I suppose I could do that, but I'd still like to request a future enhancement for the passphrase caching I originally suggested. If you get to it, great. If not, I'll still survive.

Why use XML when you can import another PWA file directly? And XML import is not currently supportted, only export.

I posted this not so much to get suggestions for a workaround, but rather as an enhancement request for some future release. In the meantime, I'll just have to retype the passphrase several times a day.

Think that would work?

All I can suggest is that use only one file and keep all your stuff in one file. Put work entries into a separate group.
