23/01/2003 1.0.4
  • Under certain situations, it is possible to inadvertently create folders/bookmarks at the same indentation level as the root node "Bookmarks", and it is not possible to delete them. The only way to delete them is to move them to a folder under the Bookmarks root node. This has been fixed.
  • When using the arrow keys to navigate the folders/bookmarks pane, it is possible under some situations to cause data corruption. One way this can occur is to expand a particular folder with more than 2 bookmarks, highlight the last item and press the up-arrow key to move to the first bookmark without releasing the key. It will cause all the other bookmarks to take on the attributes of the 2nd last bookmark (Note: Please do not try this test without first backing up your KEYPASS.DAT file!) This has been fixed.
