In 1Password 7 for Mac (and earlier versions I believe), there was the option (haha) to hold down the option key (⌥) to reveal passwords and secrets briefly.
I understand that in the current preferences, there is a toggle to always have passwords/secrets visible. I also know I can click the small chevron on the side of the password or secret to reveal an item. But this is a regression, IMHO. Holding option is much faster than having to click an item in a sub-menu.
I hope this is something you can consider reimplementing (and I would be happy to see it on my PC as well!)
