I am saddened to see that the new macOS Mini design utilizing the Category dropdown (which seemingly cannot be opened without clicking on it) and removing easy access to Credit Card and Identity items has now also made its way to 1Password X (which is what I use on my work Windows machine). I have a backup that thankfully will let me use the old design for now.
Unlike the desktop extension, 1PX has a dropdown that will usually service the right content, so it's definitely not as bad as the new macOS mini in that sense, though I find this can often fail with credit cards. For example, it might show up on the field asking for the number and input it there...but then not fill in the expiration date or CSC, so I have to launch 1PX manually and then select it for autofill.
Being asked to search for our credit cards or ID fills by name is not a great solution. It essentially mandates that users name these items in a certain way in order to be easily obtainable and that they recall what they named it when they want to search for it. For example, the ID fill. I don't know about anyone else, but my ID is saved under my name. As you can imagine, starting to type my name in the search brings up several logins, particularly ones associated with work because my work email is essentially my name. Even starting to type "ID" brings up a bunch of logins with "id" somewhere in the fields. Starting to type "Identity" does not bring up the Identity logins. So now, I have to create some unique special name for my Login ID just to be able to find it without having to click through to the category dropdown menu.
With cards, the first thing that came to mind was to simply type "Card", but a) the search matching doesn't work on categories; b) the name for my card doesn't actually have card in it (it is named after the bank/account the card is attached to); and c) it also brought up other logins with the word card into the name or URL. So then I start typing in the bank that the card is affiliated with...which brings up the bank website login in addition to the card. I can't really think of a way to name it that isn't going to require I type several letters or just memorize some special custom identifier and name it that (and for the longest, I never really cared about what things are named in 1P because I never really had to...in fact, until recently I had a lot of logins named something like "Welcome - Login" because that was the name of the page when 1P offered to saved the login and I just hit OK).
I know the macOS team is reportedly finding ways to address the lack of easy access to Credit Card and Identity in the new macOS mini, so just putting out there that I hope that can be done in 1 Password X as well.
