I can't get 1Password on my MacPro to sync with my 1Password on my iPhone using Dropbox.

I've had a great deal of success syncing my 1Password on my iPhone with my iPad and even to my Windows Surface. However, I've installed 1Password on my new MacPro and even though I have Dropbox as my default, I can't seem to collect all my passwords...Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

    Just an odd thought: Do you have the Dropbox app installed you your Mac? It has to be there for syncing to work.

    Hi @Dennis Krenz

    Could you explain in a little more detail please the issue at hand.

    For example, if the trouble is getting it set up at all then where does it break down for you if you're following this guide on Getting started again on a new computer?

    or is it an issue of syncing? Are you under the impression that it should be syncing to Dropbox but changes don't seem to be appearing?

    Once we have a better idea where the issue is we can start working with you to resolve it.

    I've followed the getting started guide for a new computer using Dropbox as my current sync method and in Preferences found that it was set to the 1Password/Agilekeychain file. This is the same file on my iPhone so I assumed "life's good!". What I HOPED would happen is that 1Password on my Macbook Pro would (seamlessly???) pick up the passwords I've already saved in my Dropbox from my 1Password iPhone. Seems logical...huh? This shouldn't be this tough using the same software on the same platform. I had less trouble with Windows picking up passwords from my iPhone Dropbox...

    Hi @Dennis Krenz

    So just to be clear, in 1Password's preferences, in the Sync tab it's currently saying that you're syncing via Dropbox and pointing to your only .agilekeychain in your Dropbox folder. Despite this you're saying it isn't picking up new passwords or have I misunderstood and you're saying that it's working now but you needed to inform it to sync using Dropbox?

    For a completely fresh copy of 1Password it normally does attempt to locate vaults in the standard locations. It will check for older versions of 1Password as well as checking iCloud and Dropbox so it often just asks for a Master Password. I still think there is room for improvement here but that would be for a later version.
