Dear Maintainer,

I have, as default, set up password-generation with all possible character
possibilities (upper/lower, number, symbol),
but one sometimes does not know until one is actually at a website creating a
password, that the password cannot contain certain characters -
usually a subset of symbols.

It would be nice to have a button near Generate, which when pressed would bring
up a window in which one could specify what types of characters were allowed
(this would initially duplicate what was set up when configuring QtPass),
but would also allow one to enter specific characters that should be
included, or should be excluded, for this specific account.  Also, this full
classification of allowable characters would be stored with the password
record, so that if the user needed to change the password again, it would
automatically generate the password with the rules set up in this session.
(If some time in the future, the company/website changes the rules, the user 
just press the button again, and alter the stored rules to fit the new 

[I, myself, recently had to cancel a password-entry session to change the
config to exclude symbols, for a rather picky website;  I still have not
remembered to go back to Settings, to turn Symbols back on... ]
