Is it possible to enter/edit "form autocomplete" data?

Posted

Is autocomplete data editable? These days you have to fill out everything down to your inside leg measurement just to ask a simple question and it has gone from a nice to an essential feature. There is a lot of old data that could be deleted or updated.

It is, but the process is complicated and needs an add-on for accessing the form history database file.
