    Hi @PerryDawsey,

    Could you let me know what version number of operating system you're using? If you're using a newer operating system (such as Mavericks or Yosemite) we'll need to run an import script to help 1Password 3's import work its magic.

    Hi @PerryDawsey,

    To import using 1Password 3 on Mavericks (e.g. 10.9.5, like you're running), open the Terminal app (from /Applications/Utilities) then copy and paste this single line into it:

    env PATH=/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin '/Applications/1Password 3.app/Contents/MacOS/1Password'

    That assumes the 1Password 3 app is in the /Applications folder and named 1Password 3.app. You'll need to change that if yours is named differently. This will allow the import scripts to use the older version of Ruby and properly import your data.

    Please let us know how that works out for you. :)

    This is the error I get

    Hi @PerryDawsey,

    That error is caused by 1Password 3 on Mavericks using Ruby 2.0 instead of 1.8 when importing. You'll first need to open the Terminal app (in the /Applications/Utilities folder), then copy and paste this (all on one line, exactly) into it:

    env PATH=/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin '/Applications/1Password.app/Contents/MacOS/1Password'

    When 1Password 3 opens after that, try importing your data and it should work fine.
