So sorry for the noob password question
« on: September 12, 2014, 03:05:10 am »
Hey, I'd like to change my password, but when I click on File (with my wallet open of course) Change Password remains grayed out.  I know I'm missing something simple.  Can anyone help me please?  Thanks in advance.

There's no need to apologize for any question on here. That's what this forum is for. I'm not a techie, so I can't answer your question, but I'm sure someone smarter than me will chime in soon to help.

for some reason the change password feature has been disabled for the moment.

I guess its not seen as a priority but is on the list. The software is still in its early stages of development but is evolving quickly.

I think you can still change the password with a command in the console

How does the password work, does it only crypt the wallet on my computer? If I have a backup of the wallet, and then change the pass, will I then have two wallets with the same private key but with different passwords?

the old backups can restored only with the old passwords, the new with the new....
