  1. I'm always happy to get involved when I find just the right software for me. I've fiddled around with several password managers, and Enpass is the clear winner. Very happy to be part of the beta. Cheers!
  2. New issue: CMD + S does not save in Add or Edit Item. The only way to save is the physically click the SAVE button.
  3. Speaking of Categories (previous post), I'd like to suggest some changes: 1) Credit cards are Finance — I don't understand why they're separate 2) Insurance should be separate from Finance 3) Shopping should be a category (Amazon, Target, eBay, Etsy, etc.) 4) Social should be a category (Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, etc.) 5) Utilities should be a category (gas, electricity, phone, internet, etc.) 6) Maybe Media as its own category (Netflix, Hulu, Roku, Vudu, Kanopy, JustWatch, etc.) Or maybe categories could just be user-editable, so I could put Credit Card into Finance and remove Insurance from Finance? Also, I'd much rather have just one template called "website" than dozens upon dozens of literally identical templates that differ only in their icon and URL (both of which can be added by the user in seconds, once the custom icon UI works better by just scaling an image instead of making a mess of any image that isn't exactly 200x200). This way I'm not stuck with tons of templates I'll literally never use and just get in the way. (Maybe others feel differently.) Also the Add UI is in dire need of a Back button. If you accidentally click the wrong template, you have to start over from scratch.
  4. Was just fiddling around with creating my own Categories, and found that once you do, you're a little bit stuck. When you go to create a new Item in that category, you're told "No templates found in this category. You can add a new template from Customize settings." A couple points here: 1) It's impossible to get to Settings directly from Add Item (CMD + comma should open Settings/Preferences regardless of where you are in the app — this is part of the Mac-unfriendly UI people have mentioned upthread — I can live with this UI, but as I noted previously, it does make the Mac version of Enpass feel like an afterthought porting of PC software, and this version is definitely not as easy or intuitive as Enpass 5 for Mac) 2) When creating a new category, adding templates to it should be part of the process (obviously you need templates for your category) 3) Having to go to an entirely different place in the app to do this is very user-unfriendly 4) Short of fixing #2 (thereby also fixing #3), at the very least the instructions should be clear: - "You can add a new template by going to Settings > Customize > Templates" 5) HOWEVER, Once in Settings > Customize > Templates, it's impossible to assign any existing templates to the new category. You have to either create a new template or duplicate an existing one. SUGGESTIONS: a) When creating a new category, there should be an option of moving existing Items into that category b) When creating a new category, there should be an option for including exiting templates in that category c) CMD + comma (and Enpass menu > Preferences) should bring up Preferences no matter where you are in the app (and they should come up in their own window, as is standard for Mac apps)
  5. Great news! Really looking forward to this!
  6. FYI, I'm pretty sure that's coming soon. This is just the first beta build, and I remember seeing somewhere that grabbing favicons isn't in this build, but it will be in a future build. Can't find where I saw that right now, but I'm pretty sure...
  7. Another request: Templates you've made yourself should be grouped at the top of Templates. Short of that, they should at least be recognized in alphabetical order. I put parentheses around the name of my template, assuming that would make it appear at the top (as happens with file names in the Finder), but no dice. Every template I made myself is at the bottom: 207 templates down. That's a lot of scrolling. (I know I can search, but that's beside the point. I should be able to get to my templates that I know I will use almost every time without the extra steps.) BTW, why aren't templates in alphabetical order? And also, BTW, the scrolling throughout Enpass 6 is not at all smooth. I just scrolled through all the templates to count them for making my point above, and it was difficult to scroll to any precise point.
  8. NEW ISSUE: When I have a particular tag or category selected in the sidebar, then I go hit the [+] to create a new item, I expect Enpass to assume I want to create an item within that tag or category. This doesn't happen. ALSO: Tags need to be located near the top of the Edit Item screen — I'd suggest right after URL. Having to scroll all the way to the bottom on some of those templates is a significant hassle. All the fields you're most likely to use should be at the top: User, email, pass, URL, tags. BTW, when creating your own template, there doesn't seem to be any way to add a Tags field or a Notes field. It turns out they show up on their own, but that's not at all clear when you're in the process of creating the template, and not having them available also makes it impossible to choose where they go. I want Tags at the top and Security Questions below Notes (which I need far more often), but as near as I can tell, that's not possible in Enpass. (And when creating a new item, [Add Field], [Add Section] and [Add Attachment] should be at the bottom, not taking up room in the middle, forcing uses to scroll to get to Tags and Notes.) ALSO: There are too many steps to creating a new item. In Enpass 5, you could just click [+] > Login, and you'd be entering your data. Now there's a whole extra step in which you have to choose a template, 90% of which I'll never use, and at least half of which I've never heard of. At the very least, allow users to audit/delete/hide templates so they're not having to scroll through dozens they'll never use on the off chance that one they might want could be in there somewhere. Here's the thing: How different, really, are those dozens of templates? I mean, other than the icon (which you can add yourself), what's the point of having a template for, say, AccuWeather? Especially when you don't have templates or icons for any other weather service? There really only needs to be separate templates for separate kinds of accounts that might have very different fields. If you have 40 templates that all have the same fields, you're just making it more difficult than is necessary for creating new items. And on the subject, in addition to being able to delete custom icons, users need to be able to delete custom templates too. If you make a mistake on a template or icon, you shouldn't have to live forever with that clutter in your Enpass UI. BTW, creating a new item is one area where the Windows-like UI falls down: Click [+]...wait for Add Item overlay to load...click "Login"...wait for Choose Template to load...click "Default"...wait for Add screen to load. It's less than a second each time, but do a test: Create a new item in Enpass 5 for Mac, then do the same in Enpass 6. Enpass 6 takes at least twice as long. Enpass 5 was quick and easy. Very much not the case in Enpass 6. Overall, still happy with the new version. But the user-friendliness needs some work.
  9. New issue: Enpass 6 does not have an option for Lock when Enpass is idle for XX minutes (like in Enpass 5), it only has Autolock when system is inactive for XX minutes. Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I'd like both options. Cheers, and thanks for all the hard work.
  10. Thanks for diving in with a big batch of replies, @Vikram Dabas! Very much looking forward to the next beta release. That probably explains it. My passwords are strong, but are partially pronounceable and while they might look fairly random to the human eye, maybe not so much for a password checker. I'll DM you a fake sample. 1) Both devices are MacBook Pros (2009 & 2010) running 10.11.6 2) I think the order in which things happened was: create new item by hand realize while creating it that Enpass doesn't have an appropriate icon save anyway so the record is there while I go hunt for the custom icon I want go back to the record after finding an icon, click Edit, click icon, click the (+) to add my own (I'll skip the part where I tried 4-5 icons before figuring out that a custom icon has to be exactly 200x200 — Enpass needs to scale, not crop!) after finally getting the icon I want, I'm done on Computer 1 Later, I'm setting up Enpass 6 on Computer 2, and you can pick up the narrative from my original Steps above. 3) So far I've only tried custom icons with one item that is in a shared vault, so I don't know about recreating. Sorry. BTW, Enpass needs a coffee cup icon and icons for every letter and every number. Why does Miscellaneous only include G, H, I, P, Q, R, X, Z for letters and no numbers?
  11. Found a new bug: If you create and use a custom icon, it does not sync between devices. Steps to recreate: 1) In an existing Enpass 6 vault (synced via Google Drive, if you want to reproduce exactly), create a new record and add a custom icon (BTW, see my previous posts about all the problems with creating custom icons that actually work!) 2) Go to a second computer, install Enpass 6, and sync that vault onto this second device RESULT: record with a custom icon has no icon at all on this second device I believe this relates to how the icons are stored, which is very strange: If you dig into where they're stored (Library > Containers > in.sinew.Enpass6-Desktop-Beta > Data > Library > Application Support > Enpass6 > temp), you'll find that when you quit completely out of Enpass 6, those custom icons disappear completely. When you launch again, they return. While Enpass is not running at all, if you search for the file name of any of those icons (using a search tool that isn't crippled like Spotlight — I use Find Any File), there's no sign of them anywhere on your drive. So when Enpass 6 isn't running, it must stash those custom icons somewhere completely hidden. That's problematic in itself, but what I'm getting at here is that I'm not surprised an icon buried that deep in Library > Containers doesn't get shared when you sync across devices — and there's no point in using custom icons if you can't sync them across devices. So in addition to the problems described upthread, this is another sign that custom icons may have a ways to go yet. Hope that's helpful Vikram and team.
  12. Ahhh. Well, that explains it. I think it would make more sense for "History" to always be there (so people know it exists!), but shows empty results if there have been no changes. Consistency makes for a better UX.
  13. I'm trying to duplicate this, but I'm not seeing "History" in the contextual menu for any field, but only for the password field. Everything else has only one item in the contextual menu: "Copy"
  14. Just rebooted for the first time with Enpass 6 installed, and instead of launching (at startup) in the background like Enpass 5 (where it just shows up in the Menu Bar, ready to use as needed), Enpas 6 launches the full app, landing on the master password prompt. Of course, very few people will need to login to Enpass to retrieve or edit account information upon starting up their computer, so I'm hoping this gets fixed. Just so I'm not filling this forum with bugs and other issues, I wanted to take a minute to say that I've started a second vault for the first time, and I'm thrilled to have this feature. This was the one thing I was waiting for before committing fully to Enpass. I like the way it's executed, especially the CMD+1, CMD+2 vault switching and the display in the Vaults menu of which cloud service is used for backing up each account. I also appreciate that the app has so many key commands in general. This makes it very easy to navigate — although as mentioned above, ESC to get out of various screens is sorely missing. It's there for some things (you can ESC out of creating a new item), but not there for others (you can't ESC out of editing an item). Cheers!
  15. In Enpass 5, after unlocking Enpass's Menu Bar overlay, if you then Show Enpass, the app interface opens right up. In Enpass 6, after unlocking the Menu Bar overlay, when you then Open Enpass, the app interface always asks you for your master password again, even if you literally entered it seconds ago in the overlay. I hope this isn't by design, as it's a hassle. Also, another usability note regarding the un-Mac interface: Navigating the preferences is cumbersome. In the Mac-friendly Enpass 5, you go to Preferences, and it's very easy and quick to move from tab to tab for the various kinds of settings. In un-Mac-like Enpass 6, switching from one settings category to another is a multi-step process involving a back button. Not a huge deal, but it's user-UNfriendly. I'm also unclear on whether or not it's safe turn on cloud syncing in Enpass 6. I did, and now Enpass 5 won't sync, and there's only one .walletx file in the Enpass folder of my cloud account. The most recent sync was yesterday in Enpass 5, even though the most recent attempt was today. But in the first post in this thread it says, "you can use your existing cloud accounts to test the sync in Enpass 6 without any interference to sync in stable Enpass 5." BTW, this forum thinks every browser I try to use is a spambot. Chrome, Chromium, Safari, Firefox, Brave, no matter which, I get either the error message in the attached screenshot, or one just like it that says I've submitted too fast and to wait several seconds and try again (in reality, I have to wait 10-30 minutes before trying again). Each post I've made here has been a 20-30 minute process just getting the [Submit Reply] button to work.
  16. In Chrome, Safari, and Firefox, the Enpass overlay is rendered on top of everything else, including Dock icons. Not sure I'd call this a bug necessarily, but FYI.
  17. How does one delete a custom icon? I just added one, and once in the gallery it was way, way, way too small. So now I need to replace it. 1) How do I delete the icon I no longer want? 2) How do I find what the dimensions should be for a custom icon? The one I used was 72x72, which is only slightly smaller than the middle size of the icons used in Enpass 6, but once imported it displayed at 15x15 — 79% smaller than it really is. So does this mean that in order to display custom icons at 40x40, like the pre-loaded icons in Enpass, I have to use an image that is at least 200x200? Next, I tried an icon that was 1024x1024, but instead of shrinking it down, Enpass cropped out 200x200 from the center, so that makes a second custom icon I need to get rid of because it doesn't look like anything. So for custom icons, apparently we have to start with a PNG that is exactly 200x200 for it to appear in Enpass at the right size. I think the app should be able to render any size icon at the correct size for the app instead of doing what's shown in first two icons of the attached image. Please add a feature to allow the removal of custom icons. Also, it would be nice to be able to have the custom icons attached only to the one account, and not become part of the gallery. In my example, this is an icon for a service at which I have one account. I will never need it again, so now it's just clutter in the icon gallery.
  18. A few notes, bugs and issues: GENERAL - What does TOTP mean? - As others have noted, the UI is rather un-Mac, especially the settings/preferences. Not a BIG deal to me personally, but it makes the Mac version feel like an afterthought, and also makes the app less accessible for less experienced users (my poor old dad would be confused by it, but find his way eventually, with help) - Where’s the Sync button? Is Sync not ready yet? I can't find where I go to connect to a cloud account. - And will we be able to CHOOSE the location of the Enpass folder within the cloud? - I don't want Enpass cluttering the top level of my Google Drive/Dropbox/whatever - I know this isn't in the cards right now, but it would be extremely helpful to be able to sync multiple vaults to the same cloud account APP - CMD+W doesn’t close the Enpass window - Also, Close Window is in the Window menu, which is not Mac standard — it should be in the File menu - Maybe this is why CMD+W doesn’t work? (It's in the right place, and works, in Enpass 5) - When the Menu Bar overlay is open, tapping the Menu Bar icon does not close the overlay as it should - Along with not being able to use ESC (see APP & EXTENSIONS below), this means the only way to close the Menu Bar overlay is by clicking somewhere else on the screen - Cannot drag accounts into categories or into tags (attempting to click-drag an account instead scrolls the accounts column up and down) - When adding tags while creating/editing an account, existing tags do not auto-complete - Mouseover on icons should tell you what they do — e.g., the circular arrow with the star in the middle is not at all self-explanatory, and looks like a “refresh” icon (why would a circular arrow mean “generate password”?) - Settings categories are slow to respond to clicks - Legitimately strong passwords that Enpass 5 recognizes as “strong” (18 characters, strong mix of caps, lower, symbol & number) are flagged “weak” in Enpass 6 APP & EXTENSION - ESC does not work as it should and does in any other app: - ESC should a) clear the search field if anything has been entered, and b) close the overlay* if the search field is empty - Users should not have to mouse over to the (x) to clear the search, and should not have to click away to close the overlays* - When the master password field comes up, there’s no cursor, so you can’t tell if you’re in the right place to start typing (or if you have to click in the field first) - Most other apps that run in the Menu Bar continue to run after QUITTING the application. It would be nice to not have to remember to just close the window for Enpass only (*the word "overlay" used to say "window," but I mean the Menu Bar overlay and the browser extension overlay, not the main Enpass window, which should NOT close by hitting ESC) That's all so far. It's looking great Vikram!
  19. In Settings > Customize > Categories, each category has a checkbox. I'm guessing you could uncheck them all. Might not lose the "Categories" header in the sidebar, but it will probably disappear all the categories.
  20. That didn't seem to be possible. The Enpass folder in Dropbox had no sharing options. I had to switch to Google Drive to be able to share an Enpass folder. Also less than keen on not being allowed to choose where Enpass creates a folder within my cloud services. Top level is not where I'd choose for this folder to live.
  21. Followup question on this topic: Why is it not possible to share the Enpass folder within Dropbox? I have this same problem: I need to share with the wife's Dropbox account. Is this less of a problem on Google Drive?
