Different Default Keyboard Shortcut(s) For Different Layouts


I had this issue before and now again with the early access. I'm from Austria and I use the German QWERTZ layout but it doesn't really seam like the 1Password App knows or adapts to it. When I check I currently can only see one shortcut and it is CTRL + SHIFT + \ to Open 1Password but even that one shortcut is already "useless" on a QWERTZ layout (for the \ key you also need to press ALT GR).

I don't know what the best solution would be but I'd love to use shortcuts without manually adjusting them first (which isn't possible in the early access either, though I guess it will be in the future eventually). Other programs manage to just "detect" what the key would be on the same spot (though even then I wouldn't recommend \ because there are layouts that don't even have that key spot at all).

This would also be nice for the Linux app of course :)

1Password Version: 8.1.2-22.NIGHTLY
Extension Version: 2.0.5
OS Version: Windows 10
Sync Type: Not Provided
