I've tried to search to see if my questions have be answered before and if they have I wasn't able form a query that would find the discussions, so thanks for your patience if these questions have already been addressed here.
I'm still using 1PW v6.8.9 and have be watching the development of v7. I'm always slow to advance from one version of an app to the next as there are usually "growing pains" that take awhile to work through. By watching the Change Logs for v7 I'm now starting to consider making the upgrade. I really like the new v7 features I've read about, especially the added WatchTower capabilities and the "have I been pwned" integration.
I wish I could just run v7 alongside v6.8.9 but I understand that is not recommended (I know that a v7 install zips up the old v6 install so there is a way to go back but I'm not quite ready to take that step).
I have a workflow that I use with v6 that I'd like to understand can still be used with v7.
Early in my use of 1PW, I used it with the browser extensions. While I recognize there are advantages to using the extensions, I was never really comfortable with the consistency of their operation. I felt like I wasn't in full control of the login process so I disabled the browser extensions and haven't used them since.
I developed my 1PW workflow such that I make entries into 1PW using 1PW to generate a strong password, manually enter my User ID, copy and paste the web URL from the browser, enter any other pertinent info and then save the 1PW entry.
After setting up my credentials in 1PW, my method is to copy and paste the web URL from 1PW into the browser and copy and paste both my User ID and Password when I login.
This is the way I've done it for years and I don't want to have to change that workflow. It's what works for me and I've used it for so long that it's just become a "muscle memory" automatic process.
I realize that the browser extensions have probably gotten "smarter" over the years and that there is the added advantage that the browser extension won't inadvertently enter my credentials into the wrong (or spoofed) web site; however, I'd still like to understand that if I chose to I can use v7 the same way that I've been using v6.8.9.
Bottom line, with v7 of 1PW on macOS can I forgo use of the browser extensions and continue to use my workflow as described above?
Thanks in advance for your patience with my long-winded questions.
