1Password on Mastodon

Where is the password generator in the standalone version?

Since version 8, I miss the password generator in the standalone version. I find it in the browser extension. But not in the standalone version.
Is that intentional?
If so, why?

1Password Version: 8.4.1
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Windows 10 21H2

    Hi @element !

    It seems like there isn't any Password Generator in the 1Password 8 app. I'm not able to find it either...

    Hi @element, thanks for your message.

    As a workaround the Password Generator can be accessed in 1Password for Windows 8, by editing an item, selecting the existing password and selecting Create a New Password. Please note not to save or overwrite any newly generated passwords when using the password generator in this manner.

    I know this isn't exactly an elegant solution, and other customers have requested this type of functionality return similarly to how it appeared by right-clicking the system tray icon in 1Password for Windows 7.

    While I can't make any promises about when or if this will be implemented in future versions, I've added your feedback for developer consideration.

    Have a great day! :)
