Two types of record
There are two types of record associated with the Form Filler. The Personal Identity Record and the Credit Card Record. The Personal Identity records are records that hold information relating to a persons personal details such as address, full name and date of birth. Credit Card records contain details of the users credit cards. The purpose of storing these details in the Form Filler is that they are forever there to reference and need not again be typed. The details can be retrieved from the form filler by dragging the fields (see below) copy and pasting, and in some cases using the Auto Fill button will fill use the information to fill web forms within a few clicks (See below).
Navigating through records
To navigate through the available Personal Identifier record or a credit card record, you need to of selected one of the Personal Identification tabs (Name, Address or Misc.) or the Credit tab respectively. The two types of records move independently of each other so if you move the credit card record to record number three, this will not change the record number of the Personal Identification record. Note that on closing Easy Password Manager the last selected record is saved as the record that is selected the next time EPM is opened.
You can also use the drop down selectors to go to a particular record for both types o record. Using the drop down list near the top of the form filler, each record is listed in alphabetical order by there Record Identifies for Personal Identifier Records and Credit Card Identifiers for credit card records.
Inserting, Editing and Removing Records
To insert, edit or remove a record use the Insert, Edit and Remove buttons respectively.
When inserting a record, like when navigating through the records, the type of record that is inserted is determined by the current tab selection. Therefore if you are viewing any of the three personal details tabs (when the faces icon is displayed) then the Insert record button will open the Insert Personal Identity screen. IF you are viewing a credit card record then the Insert Credit Card window will be opened.
When editing or removing a record the same principle is applied and the currently selected record will be effected by the associated action.
