Hello!

I have just updated to 1Password 8 and I am very happy about it :)
One small annoyance I found is the missing password generator -- previously I could click on the menubar icon and there will be a big button to generate a new password, but now it's gone. Is there a plan to bring it back?

We have this button in the Chrome extension...
ext

But where is it in the macOS app?

  • Hey @xupaddy:

    Glad to hear you're liking 1Password 8 so far! 😁 To generate a password in 1Password 8 for Mac, the New Item button would be your best bet. With that said, I can definitely understand how it would be useful to generate passwords right from Quick Access, so I've shared your thoughts on our internal tracking issue for it.

    Yes, you now have to go through five steps to generate a password, whereas it used to take only two. Definitely a step back in an otherwise excellent app.

    Losing this is a step backwards. Please bring it back.

    Just signed up to 1Password Forum to chime in on this, having no option to generate a password like the old days is a big loss.

    Right clicking the taskbar icon and being able to select the password generator was a great feature!

    Add me to the Password Generator list. I use it ALL THE TIME. Also I use Safari, not Chrome, so the key icon doesn't help. This is a huge negative for me.
