  1. While browsing e.g. several items to quick verify the password of each item it would be great to quick reveal (show) the password with a shortcut. Currently it can be done only with the mouse by clicking on the eye symbol but that breaks the flow. In some other password save apps this is done by using a modifier key press (e.g. the option key) -> while holding it, the password is revealed - releasing the key and the password is hidden again.
  2. Oh man, you are right - missed that setting totally. Thanks for pointing it out! Maybe its best to delete or skip all I previously wrote to not confuse others
  3. Ah, thanks - did not consider to change the keyboard to en, that did the trick regarding the "#" german key to be inserted as a "\" with the English Keyboard. I confused that. Global Hotkey Shortcut In the Settings of the Enpass App (6.0) -> General -> System-wide Hotkey you kann add a Hotkey (as well). As there was/is no configuration possible in the Safari Extension I (wrongly) assumed this setting would somehow be a replacement. This has the "cmd" + "alt" + key Hotkey. But it turns out that this is - as the title suggests - a Global Hotkey, that does not integrates within the browser. It will bring up a assistant view, that looks almost the same the Safari Extension looks like, but does not fill the form in a (Safari) Browser window - instead it opens a new page. So this Global Hotkey is somehow nice but is not related to form filling in browsers. Just if somebody else runs into the same assumption Regarding the actual fix you referring. It works as you stated - thanks a lot! Maybe somebody else run into same wrong assumptions - the settings in Enpass App does not have anything to do with the actual Safari Extension. Safari Extension Shortcut To modify the shortcut for Safari's app extension, open Enpass and go to settings -> browser and scroll to the bottom. There is an comfortable input field for setting the shortcut. As @xarekate mentioned - for non english keyboard users: switch to english keyboard layout and type the key in the field. The following steps are still valid but obsolet as the Shortcut can be easily entered in the settings of Enpass - thanks again for @xarekate clarifying this in the answer to this post. The still valid Fix ist that with the plist File. To modify the shortcut to e.g. "cmd"+ "#" on a german keyboard you have to edit plist File and change the string value from meta+' to meta+\
  4. Hi @xarekate, maybe I do not get your point or we have two different german keyboards. Tried to imagine what keyboard layout in English Keyboard you probably think of, I assume the English International (which is at least from the key count the same as german): https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201794 I guess by "u have to use the appropriate key from the English keyboard layout." you mean at the position. If I try to follow your suggestion with the key # this would translate to \ on the English International keyboard position. So I open Enpass, Settings and navigate to the Global Hotkey Setting. With some fiddling I get the keys alt+shift+7 (the german way of typing \) pressend and resulting in \ in the input field. Btw. you have to try some times, clicking in the input field and press the 3 keys quick - will not work directly, do not know how the devs think that should work? Is that successful the keyboard shortcut should be "cmd" + "alt" + "#" following your suggestion. By the way you and others are always referring to "cmd" + key - the Settings screen somehow suggests that the combination is always "cmd" + "alt" + key. Do I get something wrong here as well? But nevertheless it does not work. The combination will not bring up the assistant dialog. Btw. tried around with some other combinations e.g. putting "/" in that field (by german shortcut "shift" + "7"). This combination will at least work as you suggested - the key "/" is located next to the right shift button - in german keyboards this ist the "-". Pressing "cmd" + "alt" "-" on my german keyboard will now bring up the assistant dialog, So at least for my system the advice to look at the English International keyboard to find the corresponding equivalent key does not work for all keys. To be clear - it only works for the "-". @enpass Nevertheless it should not be not up to the users in a forum to discuss workarounds for a obvious bug in the app. Having bugs in apps especially in new major releases is nothing unusual. But as others mentioned - if something worked in a previous version and do not work now, users are very likely to be upset. And if you ignore that for too long they get really angry. So please, please communicate with us - because 3 month of no fixing and no real reaction like "we are aware and fixing it till <date>" is quite annoying.
  5. Revealing a password requires to click on the eye symbol behind the password field- there seems to be no shortcut to toggle that quickly. Copying the password has a shortcut. It would be great to quick toggle between clear and hidden password to quick verify a password value. I know it is not a good approach to point at some competitors, but the most interesting one has a interesting approach: while holding the "alt" key you see the clear password. Releasing the key will immediately switch back to hidden password.
