Keyboard shortcut conflict with Apple Notes


While 1Password 8 Beta is running, using the Apple Notes keyboard shortcut cmd-| brings up 1Password instead of centering text.

I don't even see cmd-| listed anywhere as a shortcut for 1Password, however if I quit 1Password completely it behaves as it should in Notes.

1Password Version: 8.2.2-19
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: macOS 12 public beta 8

    It sounds like the ⌘\ keyboard shortcut for 1Password is interfering with the shortcut you have set for Apple Notes. If you change the keyboard shortcut for 1Password to "Fill in Browser" to something different, under Preferences > General, do you still experience the same conflict?

    I already changed "Fill in Browser" to ctl-alt-cmd-P in a previous attempt at fixing this. This issue is 100% reproducible on my MacOS system.

    Thanks for confirming. You're right, I can reproduce this on my end as well. It is somehow triggering the shortcut to bring 1Password to front, even though the keys pressed are in a different order. Notes is Shift+Command+| and 1Password is Command+Shift+\. Even when you adjust the shortcut in 1Password, it seems like it's ignoring the keybinding here. I'll be sure to report this to our development team. I apologize for the disruption to your workflow here.
