How do I prevent the "Show X More Categories" in the Mac menu bar?

Hello!

Overall, I'm happy with 1P, but find myself repeatedly frustrated after several times per day wanting to access certain passwords and always have to click "Show X More Categories". (See attached.) How do I change this behavior so it simply displays all my categories to begin with?

Thanks!

    Hi @Squid_Listener

    Thank you for letting us know what you would like to see in 1Password :chuffed: Right now, there is now way to have all the categories show automatically on the browser extension but you can see them all right away on the main app. I can't promise you when or if we'll be able to add this to 1Password, but you're not the first one to ask and we have this in mind!

    Hi Pilar

    Thanks for the fast response.

    Wow. I'm surprised that something so simple and impactful in daily usage can't be changed. Everything else seems so thoughtfully designed.

    In that case, is there some way at least to specify which 5 categories appear?

    (Obviously opening the app is much slower than clicking 'Show More Categories', defeating the purpose of the browser extension and menu bar dropdown which are fast and aware of the URL I am at.)

    Thanks!

    Hi @Squid_Listener

    Thank you for your reply and for letting us know how important this is for you :chuffed: Right now there's no way to alter which categories are shown by default. I'm sorry that right now we don't have a better answer for you, but we're always working to improve 1Password and we always do our best to listen to what you all think, like and want from 1Password so I hope we're able to implement this sometime :chuffed:

    Hi Pilar

    Thanks for your kind reply.

    For the benefit of anyone who may search this thread in the future, actually I discovered a way to alter the default categories.

    Within the main 1Password app, simply drag the categories in the left sidebar to arrange how you want, then quit the app. The five categories you position at the top of this list are the same five that will appear in the browser extension, and in the menu bar.

    Not a perfect solution, but for the time being at least this lets you position the five categories you use most often so they appear without having to click 'Show X More Categories'.

    Cheers!

    On behalf of Pilar, you're very welcome!

    Thanks for following up to describe the method you found to choose which categories are listed first in 1Password mini. I just wanted to clarify that the order of categories can be changed in local/standalone vaults, but cannot currently be changed in the All Vaults view or in vaults that are part of a 1Password.com account.

    Sorry for any confusion about that! If you have more questions about 1Password, please don't hesitate to ask - we're always glad to help. Have a great weekend! :)

    Please add my vote to provide the feature where "show x more items" is not needed...where it will show all appropriate entries without the extra click!
