Why did you change the way the search works?

When I search for the string '@domain.com', 1Password 8 for macOS shows me dozens of entries that have the string 'domain' in it. Why???

When I search for the string '@domain.com', I only want to see items that contain '@domain.com' in it, obviously.

You can't just pull apart my search string, and display every item that matches any random substring between the '@' and the '.'

The '@' and the '.' are part of my search string.

Am I missing something here?

For a lot of my every-day search use cases, this new search-bar is completely useless. This is a significant regression from 1Password 7.

Also, the option "Expand the Search to All Fields" has disappeared. The macOS app now always searches across all fields. In the 1Password website on the hand, the search-bar seems to never expands the search to all fields. It seems to only search the items' title and username.

Two completely different search experiences. Why??

To me, search is a crucial feature for a password manager app. This needs fixing.

Also, unlock with Apple Watch does not seem to work.

1Password Version: 8.7.0
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: macOS 12.3.1

    +1 for that. I find search significantly less powerful/useful than it was in 1P7.
