  1. I'm with you. I hope the Mac version becomes something native instead of a port of the Windows version. It's not nearly intuitive or user-friendly enough as is. I'll probably keep using it because I've tried all the others, and Enpass is the only pw manager I like. But I really want to recommend it to friends and family, and I won't be able to do that unless it's Mac-friendly enough for my Dad to wrap his head around without help.
  2. Sounds great, but...Add to Vault isn't one of the options in the contextual menu:
  3. Man, I'm just running into issue after issue today. BUG: I'm unable to scroll the sidebar or the items list. Quit and relaunch fixed it. ISSUE: When right-clicking on an item and selecting "add tags," in the little overlay that pops up, the cursor should already be in the field where you're going to type the tag name. Shouldn't have to click to activate. SUGGESTION: Because the Edit screen rolls out from the right (instead of just editing in the Item View where you already are, everything that isn't the Edit screen is grayed out. This makes it impossible to scroll the sidebar and see the names of all your tags. If you want to add a tag to an item you're editing and can't remember name of the tag (was it "shop" or "shopping"?), you have to exit the edit screen, scroll the sidebar to see your tags, open the edit screen again and add the tag (or use the right-click mentioned above). At any rate, it's not possible to scroll the sidebar when in Edit mode. I suggest that Edit should take place in the same screen where viewing an item takes place.
  4. How does one move an item to a different vault? I made an item in the wrong vault. Do I have to just start all over?
  5. Another request: The ability to duplicate an item. Example use: I just created a PayPal entry for myself. Now I need to create one for my wife's vault. Instead of having to start from scratch, I'd like to be able to duplicate mine, then edit it. EDIT: Just found this in the three-dots menu. I was looking for it when right-clicking on the item. It should be there too.
  6. Here's a feature I desperately need: When the browser extension offers to save login information on a new site, which template is used by default should be up to the user. I've created my own template that I will use 100% of the time. I'm not interested in any of the other templates offered by the app. This leaves me in a position where I can never use the browser extension's offer to save the credentials because it will always do so in the wrong template. Alternatively (or additionally), it would be nice to be able to open an item and change its underlying template. I realize in some cases that would mean lost data, but there could be a warning for that. I know this suggestion is unlikely, but if it's not possible to chose your own default template, this is the only alternative I can think of for making the offer-to-save viable for me. The upshot: Users should be able to decide which template is their default. Users should be able to decide which template gets used when creating a new item from the browser extension.
  7. For quick troubleshooting please re-connect the Google Drive sync and let me know if the problem persists. Finally got around to this. Disconnecting/reconnecting seems to have worked for now. FYI, I had to do so on 3 vaults across 2 cloud services.
  8. SUGGESTION: When first creating a new Item, the cursor should automatically already be in the Add Title field. Having to click there is a wasted extra step, and it's confusing to have the Title default to being the name of the template. In other words, the screen for creating a new item should start out like this (with a flashing cursor at the front of the field)... ...not like this (where the user has to not only click in the field, but double-click in order to overwrite the "Default," which should even be there since no one will ever name an item "Default"):
  9. Here's a usability issue that I consider to be pretty major: It's possible to create your own Categories now, but it's a HUGE hassle to use them because templates aren't universal, so every time you create your own category, it's impossible to then create any items within because there are no templates for the category. Templates should be universal — or at least you should be able to start with the universal list of templates and rule OUT templates that don't belong in your new category. Plus, having to duplicate templates for a new category just creates clutter. There's no reason I should be forced to create the same basic template over and over again for each category where I want to use it. (Enpass needs a "Basic" template too. The Default template has way, way, way more fields than I'll ever use for any account.) (And while I'm at it, when one does create new templates, they shouldn't be buried at the bottom of the list, in fact, they should be at the top.) Another bug I'm seeing a lot: Half the time, it's impossible to click-and-drag an item to a category or tag. Click-dragging does nothing. The item I'm trying to drag doesn't even "come along" as a "shadow" of itself as I try to drag. Another bug: If you hide Categories, then show them again, the Item Count doesn't come back for Categories unless you quit the app and relaunch it.
  10. MacOS Really liking some of the changes, but I'm hitting more and more bugs: - Unlocking the full app takes 3-5 seconds (with a little progress GIF in the middle of the screen). In previous build it was instantaneous. - I'm unable to sync with my cloud services, even after quitting and relaunching Enpass 6. The last successful sync on all my vaults (two on Google Drive accounts, one on Dropbox) was before I updated to the new build. I don't get an error, instead I get "Last Synchronized: Today at 12:09; Last Attempt: a few seconds ago." In the last build, there were frequent sync problems (Error -113, I think was the code I'd see when it failed to sync in the background), but they could be fixed by quitting and relaunching the app. Now that doesn't work. I'm 100% unable to sync. - When in the full app, if you CMD+H to hide, it closes the app, and you have to go back to the Menu Bar, open the mini-window, re-select the Menu button, and choose Open Enpass. I'm glad CMD+W was fixed, but CMD+W and CMD+H are not meant to do the same thing. - When I turned on Use Favicons, several started to show up, but then after a handful of them appeared, it just stopped. As near as I can tell, Enpass gave up trying — and I can tell because when the process started Little Snitch was asking me to OK each connection to each site where Enpass was trying to fetch a favicon, but it only asked me about 3-4 connections, then stopped.
  11. MacOS Another bug not fixed from previous version: After entering my password from the mini-window, when I open the full Enpass, I should not have to enter my password a second time. This worked fine in Enpass 5, and was reported in the Enpass 6 Mac thread previously.
  12. MacOS Excited about this release. Will there be separate threads for the separate operating systems? I think it's going to get confusing in here if we have several platforms reporting bugs that may be platform-specific. Right off the bat I have a leftover bug from the previous release and a new one. I'm on MacOS. LEFTOVER: After opening the Menu Bar UI, the only way to close it is to click somewhere else on the screen. Standard UX for Menu Bar items is that you should be able to also close them via clicking the Menu Bar icon again, and by ESC key. NEW BUG: CMD+E from the Menu Bar mini-window no longer launches full Enpass. You now have to click the "hamburger" menu in the lower left corner of the dropdown. There is now no way to open the full Enpass window with a keyboard shortcut. The new universal keyboard shortcut is not a viable substitute for this command for several reasons: 1) The universal command is not adequately customizable, with CMD+OPT locked, and allowing the user to ONLY choose which key is used in combination with those two. The user should be able to chose the entire key combination. For example, I have a personal rule that all my homemade universal keyboard shortcuts start with CMD+OPT+CTRL. I do this because I've never come across an app that uses all three of those keys plus a letter for an in-app command. I have a dozen of these I've created in other apps, and every other app I've used that allows you to create your own universal shortcuts allows the user to chose the entire combination (see Fantastical 2 for an example). On the other hand, CMD+OPT+[key] is a pretty common combination within other apps, so it's pretty likely that forcing Enpass users to use CMD+OPT+[key] will cause a conflict in some apps. In Photoshop (at least in an older version I have), CMD+OPT+E is used to merge layers, so I can't use the intuitive CMD+OPT+E (for Enpass) as my shortcut. 2) The universal key command opens the mini-window interface, just like the Menu Bar icon, but it's opened in the middle of the screen. Shouldn't it open from the Menu Bar? Also, strangely ESC does work to close the mini-window when opened with the keyboard shortcut, even though it doesn't work to close the mini-window when opened from the Menu Bar. 3) The mini-window opened via they keyboard shortcut has a box saying [Menu] permanently hovering over the Generate Password button. To summarize: Universal keyboard shortcut should allow users to select 100% their own keys. The mini-window this shortcut produces should be anchored to the Menu Bar icon. Once in the mini-window (no matter how you got there), ESC should close it, and CMD+E should open the full Enpass window (like it did in the previous build).
  13. Woo hoo! notice! Where's the thread for this second MacOS beta release? I can't find one.
  14. I seem to be having trouble with the browser extension. When should I expect to see Enpass offer to save account information and when should I not? I'm almost never asked about creating a new entry on sites where I have not yet done so, and on sites where I already have credentials in Enpass, I'm asked about creating a new entry about half the time.
  15. Seconded here: Can confirm that nothing prints. I did not have the beachball problem though. After entering the master pass, I'm immediately taken back to the print options screen.
  16. Feature request: Would like to be able to copy custom templates from one Vault to another — although I do understand how that might be easier said than done. (Don't cross the streams!)
  17. A couple new bugs for you, both in the UI for creating/editing an item: 1) CMD+S doesn't save (you have to use the SAVE button) 2) In Mulitline fields you've created yourself (i.e., in your own custom template), the text doesn't wrap in the Edit view, so if you type a line longer than the width of the field, you can't see what you're typing: It does textwrap just fine when viewing the item:
  18. Why keep the main window open at all? No need to OPT+click the desktop (do you know you can CMD+H to hide the foreground app?). You can just click the red (X) in the main window. Enpass is still in the Menu Bar and in your browsers if the main window isn't running. You can also hide it in the Dock (no need for it to be there since you can get to Enpass from the Menu Bar: Settings > General > Hide dock icon when main window is closed
  19. FYI, you could have saved yourself a step and just resized them in Preview. Can confirm this issue though. Screenshots below from me of custom icons, made per instructions upthread.
  20. Great news, Anshu Kumar! Thanks. My eye went right past the Multiline option. I'm not sure I would have known what that meant had I noticed it. Maybe for clarity call it Text (Multi-Line) instead. Also, in the Field Type menu, the list should be in alphabetical order. Right now they're a jumble. A question: Does the vault save customizations too, like custom templates? Or do those have to be recreated on each computer?
  21. Back yet again with a question: Just made a new vault in Dropbox — and it to Dropbox/Apps/Empass Beta. This is a problem because folders inside /Apps/ on Dropbox cannot be shared. This was a vault I'm setting up for my elderly dad, so I can help him maintain his passwords. He has a hard enough time understanding the cloud, and barely uses Dropbox as it is, so I'd rather he not have to download and learn another cloud service. Suggestions? Will production version of Enpass 6 allow users to chose the directories to which their vaults are saved in the cloud? (I'm getting some deja vu here, forgive me if this has been asked and answered.)
  22. New suggestion: In the ITEM layout, the Password label (and in the Bank template, the Transaction Password) are awkwardly placed, in that they don't line up next to the field they're labeling. Instead then line up next to the password strength meter. I realize this is because the label is in the middle of all three pieces of password UI (field, strength, "generate" button). But it's really confusing and unintuitive, and it's inconsistent: The Notes label is not halfway down the Notes field. The field name should always be next to the field, not below it. See attached image.
  23. I'm back again with another request: Please add the ability to create additional "notes" fields in custom templates. (I tried adding Text fields, but they're one line of text only, and therefore are useless for different categories of notes.) Use case: I keep 3 different kinds of notes on each item. Here's how I'd like to set up my custom default template: Account name/Company/Whatever URL Login (username or email) Password Email (if not the same as login) Account details — this is a particular kind of note where I include.. Serial#s Recovery information (e.g., alternate email addy) What personal identifying info I've provided (DOB, address, etc.) How much the subscription costs What you get for the price (e.g., Microsoft 365 includes 5 users, who each get 1TB of OneDrive, etc., etc.) Support ph#s and operational hours (this is why a "phone" field by itself isn't of use to me) Other contact information Notes — general notes for information like... Why I created the account Experience-related information, for example... "terrible phone support - use chat instead" How to navigate to where PDF bills can be downloade Things I need to do related to this account (e.g., "remember to sign up for user forums") Events — history of my account 2018-01-01 created account 2018-02-01 signed up for paperless billing 2018-03-01 forced to create new password 2018-05-01 opted out of mailing list Yes, I could use the single existing Notes field for all of this, but that makes for very a cluttered field. So I'd like to see the option of adding more "Notes" fields. I'd also like the ability to put any and all notes fields wherever I want in the template, not just at at the bottom. For example, I'd like to have Security Questions at the very, very bottom of my template — below Notes — because I'm going to need access to the notes 100x more often than I'll ever need access to the Security Questions (emergencies only, really).
  24. Another problem/suggestion: About 30 times now, I have accidentally closed an item that I wasn't done editing by hitting [Enter] when I finished typing a tag name. I may be in the minority here, but I'd rather have only CMD+S be the only way to save and close the item, and have [Enter] be used to signal the completion of a field. For example, if I'm editing an item to change the password, and then add a note about the date on which I made that change, my natural flow would be to change the password, then hit [Enter] to indicate I was done in that field. (I would not [Tab] in this case because I'm very specifically not moving on to the next field.) Then I would click on Notes and add my note. Then I would use CMD+S to save my changes and exit the item. Oh, and that's another big problem: CMD+S doesn't do anything when you're creating/editing an item. CMD+S should always save and close the item, regardless of what you end up doing with the [Enter] key.
