Excluding characters in PPSK

Can I exclude some characters (i.e. "l") for the automatic creation of PPSK?

By prior experience, the users have experienced problems by confusing characters with numbers.

In the hive manager I find the options to choose whether letters, numbers or special characters are used, but is it possible to discard some letters?

Check the following thread and perhaps post a bump for the feature request.

Fahad,
Sorry, the answer as of HiveOS/HiveManager 6.4r1 is still no. Changing the PPSK generation algorithms requires close coordination between HiveOS, HiveManager, and ID Manager engineering and has taken longer than I anticipated to get everyone onboard.

We are (finally) working on these changes and a future release will allow you to choose a restricted set of characters that removes the ambiguity when printing out the PPSK. Basically, we will not include 'O', '0', 'o', '1' or 'l' when you let us auto-generate the PPSK. For manually created entries you will still have the full current character set.

Hello,

Any news on this topic. We have 6.6r1 and this doesn't seem to be implemented. 

Would be great !

Thanks
