“Improved Save and Fill” Limits Password Length to 12 Characters

LastPass prompted me to turn on:

 

Advanced Options → Try Improved Save and Fill

 

It seemed like a very nice improvement, until it came time to create a new password: it won’t generate a password longer than 12 characters.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

I’ve turn it back off, waiting for an answer to this question.

 

Thank you for your help.

Would love to hear any other feedback you may have on the new experience!

I've got the same issue, but mines just stuck at 12 characters, can't go longer or shorter (not that I'd want to go shorter, just to add the the problem description).

Thank you for your reply.

 

Yes, mine is also stuck at 12.  It is NOT an upper limit.  It’s 12 and I can NOT change it.

My feedback is that it’s premature to mark your reply as a solution before the fix has been released and tested by the people who are reporting this issue.

Not only is the password length limited to 12 characters, but the "copy" function does not work.  Have been using the product for just over a year now and find that function incredibly useful as I copy the generated password to Notepad as a backup until I know the new account and or new password is registered correctly in LastPass.

On June 23 you posted:

Today is June 30, seven days later, and I haven't seen an update released yet?  Did I miss it? 

 

If it has hasn't been released yet,  please share your current expectation for releasing this fix.

 

Thank you.
