Hyphens in item headings displayed as boxes [Install latest .NET updates in Windows Updates]

I have a similar problem as described here:

https://discussions.agilebits.com/discussion/71570/windows-10-1password-6-beta-version-6-1-296d-items-with-a-hyphen-in-any-field-display-box

but with current beta. I do not use any MacType-like program. The problem seems to only show in item detail heading:

Is this indeed a bug?


1Password Version: 7.1.566
Extension Version: 4.7.1.90
OS Version: Windows 7
Sync Type: Dropbox+1Password account

    Hi @finwe,

    Thanks for writing in.

    Is this an old item? I can't reproduce it on Windows 7:

    Can you save a new Login with fake data and see if it is saving it properly.

  • Nope, it happens with new items too, in both cloud vaults and local vaults. You don't have a hyphen in the title, that's where the error occurs.

    Windows locale and codepage differences?

    Hi @finwe,

    As MrC said, this is likely your locale settings.

    I cannot reproduce this at all. What keyboard language are you using?

    This issue may be because your keyboard is inserting a symbol that the Windows font does not have for our app. Check for updates, the last .NET update included additional international symbol fixes.

  • My OS is in Czech (cs_CZ);

    Keyboard used in 1Password is custom US English. Changing keyboard does not help; Why should it, anyway.

    And the hyphen should be an ASCII symbol (%2D), shouldn't it? Why would the codepage change that?

    @finwe,

    You seem like a programmer-type (given your ASCII mention). Export the single item (or a sanitized duplicate) to 1PIF, and look at the hex value inside the file for that character. What Unicode character do you see?

  • @MrC As far as I can see, neither online 1Password or 1Password for Windows support 1PIF export. In TXT export, the character is 0x2D

    Hi guys,

    Keyboard used in 1Password is custom US English. Changing keyboard does not help; Why should it, anyway.

    Because different keyboard enters the same symbol with a different unicode code. They normalize it but the font may not have that specific character for that specific hex code.

    And the hyphen should be an ASCII symbol (%2D), shouldn't it? Why would the codepage change that?

    Not if your keyboard inserts such hyphen as a unicode character that is normalized to a different character. That's why I asked about the website, we want to reproduce but so far, that site has no hyphen anywhere in its title, so we can't reproduce it.

    Export the single item (or a sanitized duplicate) to 1PIF, and look at the hex value inside the file for that character. What Unicode character do you see?

    @MrC, there's no export to 1PIF in 1Password 7 for Windows yet. You can export it via text or CSV formats instead.

    Oh one more thing:

    Keyboard used in 1Password is custom US English. Changing keyboard does not help; Why should it, anyway.

    You must restart 1Password completely for .NET to tell 1Password which keyboard is being in use, it may not actually update it internally until you do this.

  • The update of .NET (which was only "recommended" by Windows Update) helped, thanks for pointing that out!
