Currently, 1Password X doesn't have any ad-hoc functionality that would let someone generate a complex password for something that they don't want to save to their own 1Password vault, but rather are generating for a use outside of those that are relevant to 1Password.
Take the following example: I run a web-based system that has user accounts. And in the administrative interface, I'm creating a new user, and I want to set the new user's initial password to something sufficiently complex. Logically, I want to use 1Password to do that. But there's nothing that lets me do that in an easy way.
If the new-password field is recognized by 1Password, then I can click the overlay icon, navigate to the "Generate Password" option, and a password gets suggested to me in the pop-up. But there's no option to copy that password, meaning I don't get access to it so that I can send it to the user in some manner. And once I let 1Password fill the field in with the newly-generated password, the only option after that is to save it in 1Password — which isn't what I want to do, it's not my password and I don't want to save it in my vault. And since the password fields are (99% of the time) "password"-type inputs, I also can't copy the value out of the field after 1Password X fills it in. And finally, the password doesn't show up in a list of "recently-generated" passwords at all. So I'm totally out of luck.
And then if the password fields aren't recognized by 1Password X, then I have nothing at all I can do — the 1Password X toolbar icon doesn't give me any option to generate a new password.
It'd be REALLY nice to be able to use 1Password's complex-password-generation mechanisms for uses like this.
