1Password 8 search

    @AliH1P 1password7 is still better for me. I understand that finding a string everywhere is cool, but not if you have thousands of entries... Can we set/change/add an option to set defaults maybe? Quite a frustration to each through 41 entries where v7 only had 6 for the same search term, not even showing the item I am looking for.

    In general, the 1Password settings are impoverished of that sort of option.
    Why should we squabble about search behavior, or details of UI, when we could be given choices?

    Does anyone -- ANYONE? -- remember .xdefaults? Everything is configurable.
    (Personally, my first move would be to configure borders for the app's window. White boxes defined by white edges is, at best, a discourtesy.)

    Hey @Niekie, thanks for the feedback. Could you tell me a little more about the results you're getting in 1Password 8 compared to 1Password 7? For instance, is it because those entries are in a specific vault in 1Password 7 while 1Password 8 is searching across all vaults?

    I agree with @Niekie. The "search everywhere" feature is not helpful for anyone with a lot of items. Because previously you're able to target your search to a particular fields. See this example:
    Title - contains - 'chars' <--- ( This only searched the titles. )

    On top of this I was able to combine multiple criteria:
    Title - contains - 'chars'
    Notes - contains - 'test'
    (The combo above would search ONLY titles and notes )

    So if I had 2 entries with the title containing the word "charset" only 2 entries would return in 1PW7. But now if any part of my thousands of entries contain "chars" anywhere it will come back in the results. There could be hundreds or thousands of results (in my case) for me to still have to manually look. This is a big deal breaker! Going back to 1PW7 until t
    his is fixed. Thanks

    Hello @goodmaninc13,

    Thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear this has been a deal breaker for you and that you've decided to return to version 7. I've included your thoughts and a +1 for you in the feature request we're tracking with the product team.

    Hi folks! We have a further update to share.

    Substring search matching has now made it to the latest Production build of 1Password. To take advantage of this functionality, update to version 8.9.4 or newer (we actually just now released 8.9.5, with an additional unrelated improvement), and you will be good to go.

    I hope this comes as welcome news. And as always, we're happy to have your feedback!

    This is not working as expected.

    Search for an IP. V7 has 4 results, V8 has 41 results, most if which has no matches on the search term.
