Is there a way of changing the default account for adding new logins?

I have a personal and a work account - both added to the 1password x extension. If I add a new login, by pressing +, I don't get to choose which account it should be added to, it just opens my personal (probably the one I signed into first). I'd like to be able to change the default or explicitly choose which account I should add the login to.

    Hey @fatso83! You bring up a good point here. The default account for manually saving a new Login the way you're describing would be the first one you added to 1Password X. To change that, you can remove the first account you added on the 1Password X Settings page, then re-add the account. I agree we could improve that workflow. I've reported it to my team so we can think of ways to make the process more intuitive in the future. :)

  • +1 for this, it would be good to be able to choose it per item. It's currently a huge hassle!

    @ephur – Thanks for your input! We're in the process of testing out some new functionality with this, so I may have some good news for you soon. I'll be sure and update this thread as I have new info.
