The Windows Kee Pass version, has an integrated text (and also rtf) editor to allow viewing and editing of a txt attachment without having to save it to disk (where it could remain there unencrypted )
For K2A, I read the documentation and searched the discussions but I could not find an explanation on how it works. The only reference to attachments is the home page "support for editing entries including additional string fields, file attachments, tags
etc." and this thread where you say you were developing a new way of attaching files.
So Phil can you please explain a little more how it works?
What I'm looking for is to be able to edit a text attachment without having to save it and import it again.
I am trying it with my N7 (kitkat 4..4.2) and when I open an attachment I have 2 options:
a- Save to SD card : This is very clear what it does, but not what I am looking for.
b- Save to cache and open : I can open the attachment from the cache but , I can´t seem to be able to edit it. It opens in a text editor (I can select wich one) , but apparently in read-only form. I will not let me edit the file.
I was hoping to be able to edit the file, go back (or save it) and automatically be updated in K2A data base. And this should be done without leaving any clear text copy on the filesystem.
Alternatively, if I select to edit the entry ("pencil" button at the bottom of the screen) , the entry goes into edit mode, but for the attachments the only thing that you can do is delete them. It won´t open in the viewer / editor at all.
So... is there really a way to edit an attachment with an external editor?
(In any case, it would be awesome if K2A could have an internal text editor (just plain text editor would be enough) so that you could edit a text attachment directly in memory and without ever saving it to cache)
