Hi
when i first started up masterpassword app on macos i could choose the password type (medium, long...). I chose 'Long Password' but now i want to change it, so that new passwords are always generated with maximum security. How can i do that?

Thanks

    There should be a "Change Password Type" button.

    Yes i know this button. But on default a new password is always generatedas medium. I want to change that, so that a new password is always generated as type long. 
     pre { width: 92%; margin: 10px 2%; padding: 5px 2%; background: #efefef; border: 1px solid #d6d6d6 } blockquote { margin-left: 0; padding-left: 1em; border-left: 5px solid #ccc; }

    Ah! Yes, you can hold the Alt/Option button and additional UI will appear, which will reveal a "Default Password Type" button.
