  • I just bought the software yesterday on line so I have the latest version for windows on my desktop.

    @rjsurratt: 1Password doesn't have custom font settings, but it's something we can consider for a future version. You may be able to have Windows scale text and windows using your display settings though. I hope this helps! :)

    Hi @rjsurratt,

    Are you using a Hi-DPI screen? If yes, try this workaround in our support guide and it should improve the font scaling a bit. It will make it blurry but it'll be more readable due to the size.

    We're already working on 1Password 6 Beta that already supports Hi-DPI out of the box and it will have better typography.

    @cyberquilter: Sorry about that! A lot has changed since Mike posted that nearly a year ago. Here ya go:

    Configure high DPI settings for 1Password 4 for Windows

    But also, the new app Mike mentioned has been available for a while now, and you can get it (along with many other benefits) as part of a membership. Cheers! :)

    Well, thanks. I was just looking for a solution. However, I'm using 1Password 6. The files have slightly different names. I was able to find the files and change the high DPI settings. There seems to be no "restart 1Password Helper. I will try rebooting my computer and see it that helps.

    @cyberquilter: This will not work with 1Password 6, and it has support for high DPI displays already. What are you trying to do exactly? If you just want to adjust the font size, you can use Ctrl +, Ctrl -, and Ctrl 0.

  • I am just trying to see all the labels and web site info in the windows app. The Ctrl options don't work in my app, for some reason.

    @cyberquilter: Which version are you using? Yo may be using an old release from before we added this capability.

    @cyberquilter: Thanks for letting me know. That's really strange that you're not able to use Control with + or - to change the scaling, as that's the current stable release. Do you perhaps have other software which is capturing the input from the keyboard? If you're still having trouble, the best thing to do will be to restart your PC, reproduce the same issue, and then generate a diagnostic report so we can look at the logs to determine exactly what is happening:

    Sending Diagnostics Reports (Windows)

    Also, grab the Event Viewer logs:
    1. Click on the start button to search for Event Viewer, open it.
    2. On the left sidebar, expand Applications and Services Logs, 1Password should show up below here
    3. Right click on 1Password to select Save all events as and save it as 'logs.txt', set Save as Type to Text (tab delimited) (*.txt)

    Please send it to with a link to this discussion and your username in the email so we can 'connect the dots', and post your Support ID here so we can confirm that we've received it. Also, knowing your timezone and the date/time of the incident will help us find it in the logs. Once we see the report we should be able to better assist you. Thanks in advance! :)

  • Done. Let me know if you find anything. Thank you.

    @cyberquilter: Thanks! I see that we've received your email, so we can continue the conversation there. We'll take a look at the diagnostics and get back to you shortly! :)
