ChromeOS apps 1Password want ctrl-shift-x, but I'm in tablet mode.

New to ChromeOS. 1Password X works in the Chrome browser. 1Password app installed in Chrome OS. when I open an app in ChromeOS it gives me the 1Password icon in the login box. When I click it it asks me to press ctrl-shift-x -- but I'm in tablet mode and can't do it. What am I doing wrong?

1Password Version: 7
Extension Version: 1.17.0
OS Version: ChromeOS Version 79.0.3945.86 (Official Build) (64
Sync Type: cloud

    Hi @richtathamjr! Welcome to the forum!

    I don't have a ChromeOS device to test this, but can you not use a virtual keyboard on a ChromeOS device in tablet mode?

  • Virtual keyboards I have used don't let you push simultaneously, it's sequencial. And they don't s
    Usually show Ctrl.

  • On the Android app for my phone it never asks for ctrl-shift-x, just password or pin.

    That's because the Android app is separate from 1Password X. 1Password X is a browser extension, which you can use in Chrome, but when you are in tablet mode, perhaps using the Android app to fill your logins will be the better option.
