Is there a hotkey to activate the "Generate password +" button on 1Password Mini when "filling"?

I use my keyboard almost exclusively; a mouse is somewhat inaccessible to me — and the keyboard-based workflow of 1Password is extremely important to me.

When using ⌘\ to open 1Password Mini on a "Sign up" page for a new service, I can't figure out any way to generate a new password that doesn't rely on a mouse. Is there a hidden / undocumented hotkey to access the "Generate password" button?

(Worse, the 1Password Mini window doesn't seem to register itself with the Accessibility APIs — when I activate my accessibility-assistance tooling, it immediately closes 1Password Mini and latches onto the previously-frontmost browser-window.)

1Password Version: 7.5
Extension Version: (FireFox)
OS Version: 10.15.5
Sync Type:

    ⌘-N should give you a new generated password when you open mini.

  • That is exactly what I needed! Thank you so much.

    I, personally, happen to think this could use a little more exposure — perhaps some alt-text on hover, or similar? :x

    Thanks for the suggestion, @ELLIOTTCABLE. :) On behalf of Rudy you're very welcome.
