Cancel editing of password when clicking on different password entry in list

Good evening

there is one feature or bug (I am not quite sure) which annoys the hell out of me in 1Password (current version on Windows Desktop):

When I click on the list of passwords to edit it and I am in editing mode and I change something or nothing and then I click on a different entry in the list of passwords - it looks like the entry is being selected because the entry in the list changes color to blue (as in "I am the selected entry") but in reality the "old" selected password stays open in the screen on the right hand side in editing mode.

This really annoys me and I think is bad usability.

I would expect that once I click out of the editing part of the window and select a new password entry in the list, the following happens: If I have not changed the entry, the newly selected password should be "opened". If I have changed the entry, actually it should do the same - unless there is no versioning and no "immediate saving" of changes, then the programm should ask whether one wants to save the change or not.

Does this make sense?

    Hi there @andreasW2,

    Thanks so much for writing in with this feedback! I popped 1Password open on my Windows device and was able to reproduce this behavior and I can definitely see where you're coming from. I can't make any promises for future changes, but I've filed an internal issue for the Development team to take this behavior into consideration. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. :smile:

    I often have this behavior and I hate it. So I wanted to create a topic here, but I missed it. Now @AndreasW2 created a topic and I want to sign here. ;)
