when I log into a new site and have to create a password, how do I get 1password to generate it?
Unfortunately there's no direct integration with the browser, so you need to open the 1Password app, create a new login item and next to the Password field is a Key icon. Tap this to open the password generator. You can then copy the generated password and switch back to the browser to paste it.
You're welcome, and don't call me cumbersome.
