Pate clipboard text into pinentry
Closed, ResolvedPublic


There are many requests around the net for the ability to paste text into the
pinentry passphrase dialog box. Those of us who use very long passphrases for
encryption are unable to do so in any application that uses pinentry. Please at
least make it an option to enable pasting from clipboard.

You need to use another pinentry. It is easy to write a pinentry which allows
this. I won't do this becuase it defeats the actual purpose of pinentry.
