Editing fields results in white text on white background - hard to read!

When editing fields in one password from the app on my mac it results in white text on white background - and it is super hard to read and frustrating. Is there anything I can do to alter the text settings? I have attempted to update software but it keeps telling me I am up-to-date. Any help is appreciated.

    @mallshaw - Read the top sticky post in the 1Password 3 section of the forum, here.

    1Password 3 has seen no revisions since version 4 was released. The latest OS X update has rendered it unusable. It's time to upgrade your copy of 1Password. Or, I suppose you could roll back OS X to Yosemite.

  • Thanks @hawkmoth should have checked that. Appreciate you pointing me the in right direction. I'm all fixed.

  • Help

  • @mehess as your post relates to 1P3 for Mac I have moved the post from the 1Password for Mac forum to the 1P3 legacy forum where you will get more help.

    The best place to start is by reading this sticky at the top of the forum.


  • Yup, I'm getting the similar issue as mallshow. When I click on a field to edit, it goes all white.I am unable to see the original text which is useful if i need to verify the password is correct. I've upgrade to El Capitan recently. Is that the problem?

    Hi @Vistatvie,

    Running 1Password 3 on El Capitan would be the reason for the issue you've described, which is explained in the second post of this thread that hawkmoth referred to in his reply:

    1Password 3: Modern browsers and OS X

    I hope the information there is helpful and be sure to let us know if you have any other questions!
