Hi,

Sorry if i'm missing something obvious, but it doesn't appear in versin 1.7e that i can easily change my master password without losing all the saved passwords for my server connections.

When i go to Tools->Options -> Security I see a greyed out / checked 'Password Protect' box, and an option to 'Clear' the master password. Pressing 'clear' gives me a warning that ALL saved passwords will be made inactive. Is there another way to just change the master password?

Thank you.

It doesn't look like that's possible. I just tried editing my Terminals.config file with wordpad and removed the "terminalsPassword="big-long-string-here"" line. when I went into the program, all of my saved passwords were gone. Maybe the saved passwords are somehow hashed with the master password? Hmmm...

does anyone solve this issue? I need to change the master user/pwd too. Thanks.
