How to prevent autosave in passsword generator?

Every time i generate a password (1PW mini or browser extension) and copy it for use with clipboard, 1PW automatically saves the password as a new object.
How can i control this behavior?

1Password Version: 7.1.562
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Not Provided
Sync Type: Dropbox

    Hi @MH76,

    Thanks for writing in.

    You can't, this isn't an option and we have no plans to add one. This is added to avoid the pains that many customers went through when they copy password and they get locked out because 1Password didn't prompt to save the new Login item for their site.

    However, we do plan to add clean up methods in a future update. When this is implemented, if you save a new Login item, 1Password will automatically remove the redundant password items that has the same website and password as the Login item.

  • Thanks!
    Automatically removing the redundant password fits my needs.. hope you implement this feature soon.
