1Password on Mastodon

How to change Quick Access shortcut on macOS?

Community Member

I have removed the shortcut (via the ⓧ button) and recorded a different one, but 1P8 ignored my setting. Worse, now I cannot get any shortcut to work, even the old one (shift-cmd-space).

How do I fix that?

    Hi @Kentzo,

    Sorry to hear keyboard shortcuts aren't behaving as expected. Do you see better results trying a "CMD + any letter" shortcut? Could you also tell me if you're using a non-US keyboard?

    Let me know and we'll go from there. 🙂

    I did a reboot since and the shortcuts seem to work now.

  • Hi @Kentzo,

    Excellent, I'm glad to hear it! Let me know if anything similar occurs in the future and I'll be happy to troubleshoot with you. 😊

    Okay, the Quick Access shortcut just stopped working again. Not sure what caused that.

    I think I figured out what triggers this behavior (for me):

    1. In 1P's settings disable the menubar item
    2. Restart 1P
    3. The shortcut doesn't work anymore
    4. Enable menubar item
    5. The shortcut starts working
    6. Disable the menubar item
    7. (Without restarting) The shortcut still works
    8. Restart 1P
    9. The shortcut doesn't work anymore
    10. Rinse and repeat

    Hi @Kentzo,

    Thanks for the update and doing that additional testing. I suspect this is related to how 1Password does (or doesn't) run in the background without the menu bar icon. I can't make any promises but we are tracking feedback to improve this in the future and I've added your voice.

    In the meantime, I recommend keeping 1Password in the menu bar to ensure the most consistent experience. Let me know if you have any questions. 🙂
