1Password on Mastodon

I cannot synchronize with Dropbox (due to bugs maybe??)

I just bought 1Password for Mac OSX I and want to synchronize the passwords with my Dropbox account. I have followed the steps in this video tutorial: http://help.agilebits.com/1Password3/cloud_syncing_with_dropbox.html

The only problem I have is that there is not "Start using Dropbox" button in the Settings->General as it is in the video.

In the synchronize tab I can choose Dropbox and then it prompts me to select the valve file. The problem there is when I have selected the valve file, nothing happens when I press the continue button. A bug??

    Hi @rox,

    I'm so sorry to hear you're having trouble getting things synced up. Now the video tutorial you mention is for 1Password 3. But it sounds like you're using 1Password 4 We have shiny new instructions for syncing 1Password 4 via Dropbox here: http://learn.agilebits.com/1Password4/Mac/en/Features/Sync/dropbox.html. These instructions should make a bit more sense, and they've got a lot of pictures to guide you through.

    If you run into any snags during the process though, we're here to help!

    Thank you! The sync now works perfectly between my different devices :-)

    Hi @rox,

    On @Megan's behalf, you're welcome. Great to hear you've got your intra-device Dropbox syncing with 1Password successfully working! Thanks for stopping by again to let us know. :)
