Is Large Type available in 1 Password X?

I have recently switched from Firefox back to Chrome (see below), which has meant moving from 1Password 7 Firefox plugin to the 1Password X on Chrome.

However, I've lost my Large Type option in the browser, which is extremely handy for online banking when they ask for characters X, Y and Z of my password.

Is Large Type coming to 1Password X, or is it there and something is preventing me seeing it?

Many thanks in anticipation -

  • I figured out how to switch to the 1Password 7 extension instead of 1Password X, so I've got the functionality I need... but would like to switch back to X when it has Large Type enabled!

  • Loving that large type is there in 1Password X now. For annoying websites that ask for characters X, Y and Z from the password, I'd like the large type box to stay visible until I dismiss it. Currently it disappears as soon as I return focus to the page to type the password in. This means I have to memorise which characters are in position X, Y and Z, rather than just referencing.

    Admittedly remembering three characters and their case for a mere 5 seconds isn't massively difficult, but it's a feature I like in the desktop versions!

    Glad you're enjoying Large Type, @switkiss. We'd love for the Large Type view to stay visible too, but unfortunately there's a hard limit on what we can do in this case: there's no way for us to keep the extension popup open if you click outside of it. It's just another one of those limitations we have to creatively work around when building a browser extension. :) We will keep thinking of ways to improve the Large Type experience and make it more convenient, so please continue sharing your feedback.
