If you use the export method you can make life easier by selecting all the data and copying it into a new Excel spreadsheet. Then select all the data in the spreadsheet and go to Data.Text to Columns. Select Delimited, then select Comma on the next screen. Click Finish. The column labels and data will be aligned and you can add a filter to find specific passwords for sites easily.

While the export method works, I'm also troubled at having a text file in the clear with all my passwords, so I quickly permanently deleted the file once I was done with it. And being as paranoid as I am, I made sure I was not on other web sites or using other connected apps when I downloaded it or used it. If you want to store the file, I highly recommend zipping it using AES 256 encryption with a strong password.

+1 for requesting built in functionality.

Same here. The feature is needed. The export workaround is not a good and safe solution at all.
Another workaround that worked for me well: export from a Chrome extension. Then you don't need to save the file, it just shows the list in the browser. And the file is actually automatically saved on the disk (export.html), but it doesn't contain passwords, only some javascript.

How is this not a feature? Exporting all passwords in plain text is a potential security risk.

In addition, I am an enterprise user, and we have a policy forbidding our users to export all logins. So this workaround will not work for us.

How is it not possible to search the entire lastpass database for all items that use a password? I have to do this on a weekly basis to change all of the passwords that are associated with multiple enterprise logins that all have the different URLs but share a common password because they all use the same server on the backend. You might ask, well why wouldn't you just have one entry in lastpass that lists multiple URLs for that login and password? Answer: Because lastpass does not support adding multiple URLs for the same login and password combination. This is another obvious feature that is missing from lastpass and needs to be added immediately.
