It seems to be the case that every element/field of every record can be edited except "Type." Can this be changed so that this element/field can also be edited (perhaps through a pull down menu like used for "Group." As it stands now, if you decide sometime after you create a record as a "Login" (for example) you decide that it makes more sense for it to be an "Email Account" you have to delete the entire record and start all over.
I would also add that just paid for mSecure 5. I have no interest in paying for version 6.
Remember how disastrous the initial mSecure 5 reviews were? I waited so that you guys could iron out the bugs, and then start using the application.
Now we're expected to dive right into version 6, pay for it, and endure whatever glitches come with the initial rollout.
Guys, you are overthinking this. Just add the feature to swap the type.
Suggested work around:
(a) If the 'type' is being changed on an existing entry, then the fields should remain as is.
(b) If the entry is being created for the first time, then populate it with whatever your default fields are.
So are we expected to pay for this new release? I just purchased your app.
I'm not sure why you think we have missed the point. In mSecure 6, you will be able to change the type template your record is using after the record is created. Is there something I wrote that makes you think it's not going to work that way in the new version of the app? If so, I'll try to address it and explain it more detail if needed.
I'm not sure if something was written in a confusing way in a past post from one our support resps, but all along we have understood this feature request to mean that after a record is saved you would like to change the type template for the record. In mSecure 6, you will be able to do this. So for all of your records that are currently stored in mSecure, when mSecure is installed, you will be able to change their types.
While the full details for the mSecure 6 pricing model have not been released, I can tell you that licensed mSecure 5 users will not have to pay an upgrade fee to continue using all of the features in mSecure 5. On top of that, there will be upgrades that come for free to mSecure 5 users, but there will also be some premium features that will require a purchase to use.
In short, licensed mSecure 5 users will get an upgrade at no cost, but not all features will be available without an extra purchase. We plan to send out email communication to our customers as we get closer to the mSecure 6 release, and it will outline in detail what to expect for the new version.
Thanks for your reply, Mike. I must have misinterpreted your earlier response, thinking that changing the type template would only affect new records. It seemed as if existing records would not be modifiable. But, if you are saying we will be able to again have this functionality as we had in earlier versions, you will have happier customers again. Now, the question remains: When? This thread began over two years ago. When will we see mSecure 6?
To be clear, existing records will be able to have their types changed in mSecure 6. So if you find yourself in a situation where it would be helpful to use a different template for an existing record, you will be able to change it in the new app.
We are very close to making the first beta release available. The Mac and iOS apps are feature complete, and the Windows app is not far behind. We're just in the process of doing internal testing before the beta is released. Our plans are to release to the public before the end of the year.
