Password History not updating

Since upgrading to v8, I'm finding that old passwords are NOT being saved to the history when changed. Is this controlled by a setting of some sort? Note, the new password was not generated through the Password Generator but manually entered on an Identities entry in the password field. I can see the history, which does contain older passwords for the identity, just nothing recent (since 8).

    Hi @mmacdonell,

    Thanks for taking the time to write in. The password history is currently available in 1Password 8 apps for login and password items. As mentioned, I can also see where the history is appearing in other item types when previously changed in past versions of 1Password. I've added these details a +1 on your behalf to a feature request we're currently tracking.

    As an additional note, you can see password history for any item on 1Password.com (or .ca.eu): View and restore previous versions of items

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks Mike! I did find that capability of viewing previous versions of items; that was the only saving grace. :)

    I'd also like to see it available in the app like previously. I don't want to have to login to a website to view previous passwords (like when I have to update and forgot to put on my clipboard before changing a sites password).

    Yes this has just bitten me badly, having to reinstall a host because of this issue. Not only did it not save the generated password in any password history, although it allowed me to generate the password within the New Item dialog, that generated password did not save into the item's password field in my vault when I saved the item, which is arguably worse.
