I would like if Password Agent could export the contents of notes to arbitrary files (reg, txt, etcetera). Then I could keep most of my software licenses in Password Agent.

What kind of licenses these are? Usually they are simple serial numbers/key codes that can be stored easily in PA.

Sometimes they are Windows Registry files which have to be imported, sometimes they are license files with special names and/or extensions which the program looks for upon startup. As far as I can tell they are not binaries, though some may contain data that the program processes, and they are often encoded so as not to be easily readable. Perfectly understandable to make it hard for people to steal, but I wind up with a bunch of little files to keep track of And even if someone got ahold of my backup files for software, they would not have my licenses, since they would be in the encrypted Password Agent file.

I was going to suggest binary attachments capability (like to attach to notes) but I wondered how problematic that might be.

Heh, anyone can steal such license from your application folder then, even you have backup copy in PA

That may make sense in a future version. But it is not economical to store large files then, only small snippets like license files etc. But so far no other person has requested somehting like this!

Thanks for the replies. I have resolved the security issue with backups. Application folder issues - not a problem. I suppose the idea of attached binaries is somewhat like merging the functionality of Password Agent and Backup Magic.

I too would love to be able to attach saved certificate files, registry keys, and other small password related files within this program. (ie less than 1MB in size)

Our use of certificates, and encryption keys within registry files are increasing significantly.
