Properties - Content

In the Content tab in the properties of a database you can make various settings about the database content.

Database objects

  • Custom icons: Specifies the number of user-defined symbols related to your entries within the database.
  • Delete icons: Delete the user-defined symbols to your entries, if desired. Please note that in this case really ALL user-defined symbols will be irrevocably deleted.
  • Attachments: indicates how many attachments the opened database contains.
  • Delete attachments: Delete the attachments that are currently stored in the opened database. Please note that in this case really ALL attachments will be irrevocably deleted. Deleting attachments can possibly reduce the file size and thus speed up the loading of the database again.
  • Ignored URLs: Specifies the number of ignored web pages, that is, which web pages are not considered by the add-on.
  • Edit URLs: The Ignored Web Pages dialog box opens and you can see the list of URLs that are currently ignored by the browser add-ons. You can edit the list here by deleting URLs from the list or adding new ones.
  • Update icons and window titles: This option allows you to update the custom icons and window titles of your entries within the database.


  • Keep history of password changes: When this option is checked, an entry is always made in the history of a password when you change it. You can then find it on the History tab of the Properties dialog (Ctrl + M), which allows you to change or edit passwords.
  • Max. number of changes in history: Here you can set the number of changes in the history.
  • Delete history: Deletes the history for all passwords in the database.

Recycle bin

  • Delete entries immediately: Select this option if you want to delete entries directly without moving them to the Recycle Bin first. Note that the deletion is irrevocable in this case.
  • Move entries to the recycle bin: Select this option if you want to move entries to the Recycle Bin first before deleting them permanently. This way they can be restored if necessary.
  • Maximum number of objects in the recycle bin: If you have activated the Move entries to recycle bin option, then you can define the maximum number of objects that the recycle bin of your database may contain. The default setting is 1000 objects. Once this number is reached, you will not be able to move anything to the Recycle Bin, but will have to either restore or permanently delete entries first.
  • Empty recycle bin: Use this button in the database properties to empty the recycle bin completely. Before the deletion process, you will be asked again whether the objects contained in the recycle bin should really be irrevocably deleted.

TIP: You can also access the recycle bin settings by right-clicking on the recycle bin within your database. In addition, this also takes you to the Empty Trash and Restore All Items options.
