What happened to the Password Generator?

I could right click on the bottom right 1Password icon and choose a password generator that I could set the parameters to. What happened to it? Was it moved? Was it removed? It was a very helpful feature as I don't often like the suggested password being too long.

    Hey @CapeGabe, thanks for reaching out. The password generator in 1Password 8 is only available through editing or creating an item. It will appear once the password field is selected > Create a New Password. While I can't make any promises, we do currently have an internal request opened to add the password generator to the system tray and Quick Access as it is in 1Password 7. I'll be sure to add your voice to show our developers that there is interest in this feature.

    In the meantime, if you need to generate passwords without creating a login, you can use the password generator within 1Password in your Browser:

    1. Click on the 1Password extension icon in your browser.
    2. Click on the Password Generator (Key Icon).
    3. Change the Type from Smart Password to Random Password.
    4. Adjust the password parameters to suit your needs.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you. Wasn't exactly as you described it (not key icon, 3 line settings icon) but now at least have control again. Please do pass on the request to return it to the system tray. Thanks again.

    Hi @CapeGabe,

    Thanks for getting back to us with this update. For others seeing this discussion, as mentioned, this option has moved to the 1Password in the browser Settings menu > Password Generator as depicted below:

    To confirm, we've passed your request to see the password generator make a return to the 1Password 8 app via the system tray icon.
