1Password for Windows 8.7 is now available. πŸŽ‰ Here’s what’s new. 😍

This release has some nice goodies for you. Let’s start with the new Appearance options in Preferences.

1Password preferences window, open on the Appearance tab with the new Density and Interface Zoom settings shown

With the Density setting you can choose how close you’d like the sidebar and item list entries to be grouped. And use the Interface Zoom level to give your eyes a break like me, or if you have eagle eyes, reduce the zoom to fit more in the window. Oh, and yes, the Preferences window is indeed a separate window now. πŸ™‚

The item details screen now shows a lot more information when no item is selected, including a much larger vault icon, avatars for who has access to the vault, as well as the ability to manage access & sharing details.

1Password with no item selected, showing the informative empty item details screen with 4 people and a manage access and sharing link

This release also includes more auto-lock time options as requested, as well as the ability to search filenames to find file attachments and document items. Hat tip to @mdvzo and @mia in our community forums for bringing these to our attention.
