Configure password recipe for password suggestions

I hope this has not already been asked before. I've recently come to using 1Password X more and it kind of annoys me, that the length of the suggested passwords in the inline menu (the one that is displayed in password fields on a website) does not follow the settings I've configured for the password generation.
Is that something that can be changed?

1Password Version: 1.18.4
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Not Provided
Sync Type: Not Provided
Referrer: forum-search:generator password recipe

    Hey @Manaburner — thanks for bringing this up! We do have an issue filed for this; you're totally not alone in wishing this behavior existed! Currently, the inline Suggested Password feature is designed to be convenient and secure, by being compatible with most sites while still offering a sufficiently strong password. The password generator within the pop-up is meant to be there as backup when generating passwords for stuff like tricky sites with funky rules, generating PINs, crazy long passwords, memorable passwords, and so on. That said, we definitely haven't given up on this feature and I've gone ahead and added this thread as a +1 to the issue on our end.
