1Password for Windows is grinding to a halt when I interact with the items.

I just got 1Password to try it out today. For the first 13 items I added, the Windows application was seamless. I love the robust UI. However, as soon as I added the 14th item, I began having a major problem with the application. The application grinded to a halt very quickly and was completely unresponsive to anything but a termination signal. I closed the application and opened it again. Now, when I interact with any of the items in the list, the application stops functioning within seconds. I restarted my computer. I uninstalled and reinstalled 1Password. I really enjoy the design of this manager. Please help me fix this so I have a reason to switch from Dashlane because, right now, the 1Password application is completely unusable.

1Password Version: 7.6.785
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Windows 10 Home 19041.508
Sync Type: Not Provided

    Hi @user654984651, thank you for letting us know!

    This is a known issue that we are currently investigating. Could you please try to enlarge 1Password window 7 (or maximise it) to make the item list taller, and check again? Does the issue with freezes remain then?

    Thank you! :+1:

    The application seems to actually respond better when I have it reduced. The issue is only occurring in an enlarged window.

    Thank you for your concern.

  • @Greg [Update]

    It seems that if I use the application in a reduced window, the problem does not occur. Please keep me updated on this being fixed or ways to fix it myself.

    Thank you
