Search change? No more partial strings?

mpmchughmpmchugh Junior Member

So, it seems like something very useful was eliminated from the keychain search, unless there's a setting for it somewhere.

You used to be able to enter a unique character string that appeared anywhere in an item name to get a hit.

Now it seems like it only searches from the first character forward.

For instance, I used to be able to enter "ball" and get "" returned as a search hit.

Now I have to type "baseball" or "base" to get to it.

Was there a reason for this change? Is there a setting to allow partial string searches to work?

    Actually, as mentioned in subsequent thread, this seems to only be a Mini problem. Partial string searches work fine in the main 1Password window. Lack of partial string searching in Mini, though is a huge step backwards.

    Hi @mpmchugh,

    This is something we want to improve in the future for mini. Right now, they both deal with searches differently and we have a lot of planned improvements toward the search systems in both the app and the mini. We do want to try to make them both consistent.

    Okay. It's just really frustrating when updates to apps focus so much on the "new stuff," that they break existing functionality people depend on. I would not have upgraded had I known this was broken, as there's nothing new here that was worth losing something I use all day long. :( I hope this get's fixed soon. Thanks.
