I am using 1Password version 5 for Mac. When I am in the Logins Category I can see the password if I choose reveal in the drop down menu beside the password dots. However, when I am in the Password category this option is not available. How do I reveal the password when I need it (so it shows rather than the dots) ?

Additionally in all categories how do I show previously used passwords?

    Try pressing the ⌥ (option) key.

    Additionally in all categories how do I show previously used passwords?

    Go to the relevant item in the main app and click on show previously used passwords (towards the bottom of the main pane for the relevant item).

    Hi @Nirukt‌

    That's odd, if I hover over any password, including a password in a Password item, I get the same drop down menu containing the options copy and reveal but Stephen_C's suggestion should also work everywhere.

    Just a note as well about the show previously used passwords button, it will only be present if there is a history of password changes. If you created a Login item and the password hasn't been changed before that button simply isn't visible.
