Password Generator Generates Characters Instead Of Words

Community Member

This is less of a question than a bug report.

The attached screenshot was taken right after popping up the password generator in the 1Password plugin in Chrome (but this also occurred when using the generator in 1Password Mini from the menu bar):

(don't worry, I didn't actually use the resulting password for anything)

As you can see, it claims to be generating 4-word passwords separated by a hyphen, but is instead generating a long "characters" password. Clicking "Regenerate Password" caused it to generate another long "characters" password. I was able to kick it into displaying a correct state by manually changing the password generation parameters (clicking "Characters", or changing the number of words), but it seems to me that this kind of thing should never happen upon initially pulling up the password generator.

1Password Version: 6.8 (680015)

OS Version: macOS 10.12.6
