Creating a .mylogin.cnf file

Hi, I am new to MySQL (mysql 8.0.17, macOS 10.14), hopefully this is the right place for my question...

Wanted to create login-path to use with the mysql command line client. So normally I start with

mysql -u root -password

After typing the password everything is ok then and I am logged in. Now I have created the .mylogin.cnf file with mysql_config_editor and created the [client] login-path with same user and the correct password (tried several times to exclude typos). But starting mysql (now without any params/options) gives this:

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

So, I have no idea what could be wrong??? (I guarantee the password was entered correctly, recreated config file several times) Anyone same issue? Any idea?
