I tried it, but the "unlimited file size" feature wasn't proved: with a 4GB file, apart from its opening slowness, a popup message informed that the file could not be opened.

It seems subpad can't handle Unicode.

This program has my favorite password generator function, creating alternately the most random looking passwords or, using the "pronoucable" feature some legitimately easy to remember‭ (‬yet still strong) ‬passwords.

Also,‭ ‬I‭’‬ve been using GPG4USB for my passwords for quite a while now,‭ ‬but sort of annoyed by the lack of a‭ ‬search‭ ‬function‭ (‬I‭’‬ve suggested that to the developers,‭ ‬but there hasn‭’‬t been a release in quite a while‭)‬.‭ May switch to this or ask the devs to support GPG.
