  1. Since the Enpass team is in India and may not be familiar with the acronym, allow me to clarify: KISS = Keep It Simple, Stupid.
  2. Found another corner-case bug: If you create a Multiline field and flag it Sensitive, when editing an item with this field, the content of this field is not obscured. To be more clear... When viewing an item containing a sensitive multiline field, you do see the •••••• instead of the content. But when editing such an item, the sensitive multiline field is fully visible (and there's no eyeball button to show/hide the content), even though other sensitive fields work correctly.
  3. I think you're mistaking a different bug for a random refresh: There was definitely a bug where if you scrolled too fast (i.e., not actually very fast at all, but not slow enough), you'd get bounced back to the top. Worked the other way too: If you scrolled to the bottom, then tried to scroll back up, you'd bounce to the bottom again. The latest beta build — 6.0.3 (321) — seems to have fixed this. I haven't seen the random resizing of the window lately either, although the window definitely doesn't stay where you put it. As for tag handling, I think everyone agrees Enpass almost couldn't have screwed this up any worse. Frankly, I'm stunned it hasn't been a high-priority fix. And every time it's been mentioned on these forums, the Enpass team has ignored it — even when asked directly to comment on the issue. Enpass 6 should never have been publicly released until this was fixed. It is not user-friendly enough for the general public. I want to install Enpass for my family and several unsavvy computer-users (read: old folks) that I help regularly, but until the tagging system is simple and intuitive enough for the most basic user, it's impossible for me to recommend it. It's also grossly irresponsible (or a deliberate, underhanded customer-retention scheme?) of Enpass to not include CSV as an export option. I came to Enpass after trying all the big password manager apps. Enpass was the only one that did the things I wanted. I have started shopping again — and find myself coming back despite Enpass 6 being very much undercooked because it's still the only one that meets some high-priority needs.
  4. The new UI definitely leaves a lot to be desired. I know the Enpass team worked hard on it, but I think they just started from the wrong philosophy. They've had lots of feedback, and have participated in these forums to varying degrees (I get the impression that Enpass is not the primary paying job for any of them, so that's understandable), so I hope for some improvements over time — but it may be a while since redesigning a redesign is major work. This stinks, but there's a workaround: Settings > General > System-Wide Hotkey could save you a step. (At least, that's where to find this preference on Mac. I think it's in roughly the same place on Windows, but I don't have my Windows machine in front of me right now.) I've already complained a few times about the removal of CMD+E for opening the full window from the mini window. Can't imagine why that hasn't been restored. Doesn't seem like it would be that much work to map that key command, but then I'm not a code guy.
  5. I know the Enpass team is working hard on a good Favicons solution, but in the mean time, can we please get a full set of alpha-numeric icons under "Miscellaneous"? I'm truly stumped as to why there are icons only for the letters G, H, I, P, Q, R, X, and Z, but no other letters or numbers. And why is G the only one that's lower case?
  6. Found a weird bug: If you have an Item from which a field has been deleted during an edit, if you then duplicate that Item, the duplicate will include the field that had been removed. Steps to recreate: Add Item > Login > Default Name the item "TEST," but leave everything else blank (it won't matter) SAVE Now open the new item named "TEST" and click EDIT Click on the name of the TOTP field, and in the field editor, click [DELETE] to remove the field SAVE Select "TEST" and CMD+D to duplicate it — this will create an item called "TEST (copy)" RESULT: Even though "TEST (copy)" is supposedly a duplicate of "TEST" it includes the TOTP field that had been removed from "TEST" before duplication. NOTE: This happens with any field you remove, I just used TOTP as an example (because I don't know what the hell it is!) NOTE: This bug does not occur if you remove the field before Step 3 (i.e., while creating the item you will later duplicate). It only happens if you remove a field from an item that has already been saved once.
  7. I don't think this works for common (not custom) cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive. Or at least, when I've created vaults I've never been asked where I want them stored within my cloud directory structure. If I'm missing something, I'd love to know what it is.
  8. This may be the case on the Windows version too. Don't have time to check it right now.
  9. Roger that. Thank you for the update! I definitely understand having to abandon a third-party tool after a change to an API and/or the providers TOU. I've been there. Very frustrating, especially for a feature you'd already introduced! Very much appreciating being in the loop on this. I can live with a feature misbehaving or even being removed if I know what's going on and that there's a plan. Looking forward to beta testing the update when it becomes available.
  10. Yeah, there's kinda lot of that. Hopefully 6.0 will get a lot cleaner and clearer as new versions are released.
  11. @Vinod Kumar I'd like to suggest adding it to the three-dot menu in the Item List view. If you're duplicating an item, that's not something you do when you're thinking about the "details" of the original. If you want to duplicate a Word document on a computer, you don't open the document to do it. The same logic applies here.
  12. @Vinod Kumar My suggestions for the context menu in the Items list would be "Duplicate" and "Edit." Having "Edit" there is self-explanatory. Having "Duplicate" there only makes sense because if you're duplicating an item, the very next thing you're going to want to do is open that duplicate. Going into the Detail Page of the original in order to duplicate is an unnecessary extra step.
  13. @Vinod Kumar Thanks! I was looking for it in the list view. Cheers!
  14. When right-clicking on an Item, the contextual menu does not include "Duplicate" or "Edit." Any action that can be taken (and especially everything in the Item menu) should be included in the contextual menu. (That's pretty much the point of right-clicking on anything — to see all the actions you can take.)
  15. In Mac, CMD+D duplicates an item. How is this done in the Android version?
  16. Also, you won't need to remember the tag as there will be a tag editor at the Edit page. Hemant, you're missing the point of this one. As I've mentioned multiple times in the beta forums, the fields for adding tags need to offer auto-fill suggestions from existing tags. Currently users have to manually type in every tag IN FULL.This leads to mistakes, and those mistakes turn into multiple similar tags. This is especially true because it's impossible to scroll the sidebar while in editing mode, so it's very easy to end up in a situation where you're typing in the name of a tag that you can't even see in the sidebar. (BTW, it's even worse in mobile, where there's no sidebar at all, so you genuinely have to have memorized every single tag you've ever created because you have to type them out, in full, without anything to go on.) I've ended up with the same tag, but slightly different, multiple times because of this. At one point I had a Utility tag, an Utilities tag, and a Utilties (misspelled) tag because Enpass offers ZERO assistance to the user when adding tags. Adding auto-fill suggestions when typing in tags should be a very high priority for upcoming releases. Adding tags is a BIG pain in the butt right now. You can still do this from the sidebar, under tags. Select the Tag and right click to create a new Subtag or browser the hierarchy. On the desktop just drag and drop the item there and on ipad you can still go into the tag from Groups->Tags and create a new tag or add any item inside the tag. You're also misunderstanding the problem here. I believe Waira is saying that in Enpass 6 it's impossible to click on a tag, then create a new item and have it already include that tag. In Enpass 5, if you were in your Utilities folder when you started a new item, that item would be created in your Utilities folder. In Enpass 6, if you're in your Utilities tag when you start a new item, it is not automatically tagged with the Utilities tag. This leads to the problem I describe above, where you're forced to manually type in the entire name of your tag, and get it exactly right, every...single...time you add a tag. That is inconvenient, a big hassle, and there's no reason it should be necessary. For the record, I'm fine with tags — if they're well implemented and user-friendly. But in Enpass 6, they are most definitely not.
  17. You may have missed it, but the new version has been in beta for months, with a lot of users providing a lot feedback (look through these forums). Granted, there should have been a lot more work done before this release was made public. It's definitely not clean enough to be out of beta yet, and I don't know what led to that weird decision. But Enpass definitely asked for, and received, a lot of users' opinions first.
  18. Settings > Customize > Categories (Should be available from right-click > Edit Categories too — especially since Edit Categories says right there that you can create your own.)
  19. STEPS: Use search field to find an item Make a small edit to that item Save RESULT: When the editing overlay slides away, all the item details disappear. Better explained in a screenshot (see below). This does not happen if you edit an item without searching first (i.e., if you just scroll through all your items until you find it).
  20. Can you provide a rough estimate of when Favicons will be back? The version of Favicon-fetching the early builds seemed (from a user POV) to work fairly well. The second version of Favicon-fetching (introduced in either build 250 or 279, I don't remember which) was a disaster. When can we (beta users) expect to see another attempt to reintroduce Favicon-fetching? (I'm not looking for specifics, just "in the next few weeks" or "in the next few months" or "it will be a while, sorry!" I just want to know if I should bother spending time making my own.)
  21. Because Enpass needs to run in the background, it needs to either not quit the background process when the user CMD+Qs out of the main window, or it needs to warn users that quitting will end the background process. CMD+Q is a reflex for Mac users when they're done using an app, so it's way, way too easy to accidentally shut down all Enpass functionality. Ideally, CMD+Q would not end the background process. This is how almost every other background-running Mac app works. For example, iStat Menus, which displays CPU & RAM usage (among other options) in the Menu Bar, has a full-window UI where it's configured. When you CMD+Q to quit out of iStat Menus, the configuration window goes away, and the app's icon disappears from the dock, but it doesn't shut off the Menu Bar interface. The same thing is true of Malwarebytes. That's how Enpass should work. But at the very least Enpass needs to warn users upon Quit: Are you sure you want to quit Enpass? [QUIT]: End all Enpass processes, including Enpass Assistant in your Menu Bar and browsers [CLOSE]: Just close Enpass window and keep Enpass running in the background [Cancel]: Return to the Enpass main window
  22. Now that I've created my own "default" template (I don't like any of the built-in templates), I've started re-creating some of my Items using the new template. In the process, I've discovered a curious anomaly: Often the new item will label the passphrase for that account as "average," while the older item that I'm replacing labels the exact same password as "weak." I'm not sure this happens ever time, but I've noticed it at lest 3 times, so I thought it was worth mentioning.
  23. It would be very helpful to be able, in the Enpass Assistant overlay, to right-click on an item, and choose "Edit," which would then launch the full app and open the item's edit overlay. Currently if you pull up an item in the Assistant mini-window and want to edit it, you have to not take any action within the item itself, but instead... Click the "hamburger" menu Select Open Enpass In main window, search for the item Select EDIT Would be nice if these extra steps could be bypassed.
  24. I'm seeing a lot of problems with icons syncing across devices. Two examples: 1) In one vault, I've created custom icons for multiple items (since Favicon functionality was removed). This vault syncs between two Macs via Dropbox. I installed the Mac App Store version of Enpass 6 on the second machine yesterday and synced with the vault. Not a single one of my custom icons showed up on the second machine. Every item I'd given a custom icon now has a generic default icon. 2) In another vault, synced via Google Drive, I've chosen or created icons for multiple items using my Mac (that at the time was running beta build 250 or 279, and is now running the production version downloaded from Enpass.io). Looking at that vault today, on my Mac all the icons except the custom ones have returned to their generic icon (the globe on the teal background), but on my Android the very same items all have their icons from the Enpass gallery:
  25. Oooohhh...that. Thanks for clearing that up. Yeah, that's confusing to me. I wish I understood it better. There are a lot of problems with Google's online tools making it difficult to find your way back to something you'd previously found. I wish there was a way within one's Google account to bookmark stuff you'd like to get back to — settings, a list of forums you've posted in, etc.
