Password History in Duplicated Logins? :-(

I wish there were a way to get rid of it
I love the Command-D feature in 1P/Mac.

But it's almost useless for login items because the copy carries the password history of the source, and even if the source login doesn't have a history the copied login item will forever be branded with the password of its source.

If there's a way to purge the password history, I haven't found it yet. Even if AWS considers indelible password history to be a feature, not a bug, there ought to be a way to start with a blank slate when a new login is created using Edit > Duplicate. Maybe a user preference. Maybe Command-Shift-D to create a duplicate with a blank password and no history.

    Exactly! And manually duplicating items to leave their pw history behind can be tedious, especially since 1P doesn't support viewing/editing multiple items simultaneously.

    Vaguely like if Send Again in Mail disallowed modification of certain content in the duplicate it creates.

    AFAIK there's no direct/easy method of doing it.

    I'd be satisfied with that.

    Coincidentally, btw, if I hadn't been so tired I'd have posted about this last night (since it's been increasingly annoying lately) so I appreciate you doing it for me. :)
