How do I change the dropbox account to which 1password is synced?

My wife's 1password account is syncing to my dropbox account. I copied the agilekeychain to her new dropbox account, but am unsure how I have 1password stop syncing to my dropbox and instead sync to her dropbox.

Many thanks,

Matt

    The following should do the trick (I'm assuming 1Password 4/5).

    1. Log into your wife's user account on whatever Mac is used.
    2. Enter 1Password's preferences and switch to the Sync tab.
    3. If 1Password is syncing you should see a Change Syncing... button. Click it and confirm to stop syncing.
    4. Log out of your Dropbox account in the Dropbox Sync service. It should be in your menu bar.
    5. Log into your wife's Dropbox account.
    6. Set up syncing again. If you have a up to date copy of the agilekeychain point to it but 1Password will create one anyway (so there wasn't anything to be gained by copying it).

    The key part is you can't be logged into two normal Dropbox accounts from within the same user account. So if you want your wife to use her own Dropbox account she can only access that. Thankfully if you need to share stuff Dropbox does allow you to share folders between Dropbox accounts.

    If you have any questions before starting please do ask :smile:
