Text becomes unreadable when attempting to edit an item

This discussion was created from comments split from: Edit button behaves strangely.


  • Additional edit problem: I am not able to edit passwords or secure notes. When I click "Edit" then place the cursor on the field I want to change, the text jumps around and all text becomes illegible. It almost looks like I am looking at the screen through a magnifying glass that keeps increasing the size every second. Any idea when this will be fixed? I am on an iMac with 10.11.4 and using 1 Password 3.8.22.

    Hi @sensia,

    I'm a little confused by the last sentence, are you talking about a bug in the 1Password 3.8 for Mac or are we talking about 1Password 6 for Windows as what this Windows desktop beta thread is for?

  • Sorry, 1Password for Mac. I was on the wrong thread, didn't notice it was for Windows when I did the search
    . Should I repost?

    I moved your thread to the Mac forum, @sensia.

    Do you see this behaviour with every item type? Have you encountered this issue in any other application?


  • No, I have not seen this behavior in any other application. I have seen it trying to edit passwords and trying to edit notes.
