Cannot share newly created vaults between 1P v4.4.2 & 1P v5.3 through Dropbox.

Community Member

Using 1P v4.4.2 on MacOS 10.9 and 1P v5.3 on MacOX 10.10.4, the main vault "1Password.agilekeychain" is shared between all Macs through Dropbox.
From each Mac, created a new vault, again shared on Dropbox - the other Mac (with different MacOS) cannot see the vault created from the originator Mac.
(Just wonder how I was able to share the "1Password.agilekeychain" file to start with.)

1Password Version: 5.3
Extension Version: 4.4.1
OS Version: MacOS 10.10.4
Sync Type: Dropbox

    Wow ! Just resolve this myself : Once in 1P on MacOS v10.10.4, used Finder to select the vault created by the MacOS 10.9, then was asked to create a vault. and could then add this vault. Thought I could open up a vault by selected it through Finder.

    Hi @fenchbazou,

    Our approach could use some refining, of that there is no doubt.

    If you want to add an existing vault stored in Dropbox as a secondary vault on one of your Macs you would indeed find the Agile Keychain and then double click on it. In fact that is the only way currently to add a secondary vault from an existing Agile Keychain.

    For primary vaults it is different, to start a fresh copy of 1Password using an existing Agile Keychain you need to follow the steps in our Finding existing 1Password data during setup guide as I think you've now done.

    If anything doesn't seem quite right though please do let us know and we'll do our best to help resolve it :smile:
