Logins not syncing from Mac to iOS

I installed 1Password for my Mac. I have created 6 items at this point. 5 Logins and on CC. I am syncing to Dropbox.

I installed 1Pasword on my iOS device and when I sync to Dropbox, the only item that syncs is the CC. Any idea what is going wrong? It seems the password manager should sync the passwords...right?

    Hi Jeff Kingston,

    Thanks so much for choosing 1Password to keep your digital life secure! Let's figure out where things are getting tangled up. I've got a few basic things that we want to check regarding Dropbox first, before we get into the serious troubleshooting:

    • Please ensure that Dropbox is installed and running on your computer
    • Check that you are logged in with the same account on all computers and devices
    • Confirm that Dropbox sync is selected in 1Password > Preferences > Sync on your Mac
    • Confirm that Dropbox is selected in Settings > Sync on your iOS device

    If all of those items check out, let's run a test and see where things are getting tripped up:

    • Create a test entry on your Mac ("Test, Mac") and add some data
    • Create a test entry on each of your iOS devices ("Test, iPhone/iPad") and add some data
    • Does "Test for Mac" show up on either of your iOS devices?
    • Does "Test for iPhone" and/or "Test for iPad" show up on your Mac?
    • Log in to the Dropbox website and click on the 1Password.html file inside your 1Password.agilekeychain folder
    • Enter your Master Password
    • Do either or any of your test entries show up in your database here?

    Please let me know the results of this little experiment - once we have a better idea of where things are going sideways, we should be able to get this straightened out simply for you :)
