I've been using, and helping others set-up and use, 1Password, for years, and am therefore fairly familiar with how it works, and am fairly tech-savvy. I just signed-up for Family, however, and find the instructions for transitioning from 1Password "local" to 1Password Family (online) to be less than clear on a number of important issues.
For example: What does it mean to have both a "Primary" and a "Personal" vault? Do I want/need both? What do I do with my Dropbox vault? (I currently have duplicate items showing when I open 1Password on all devices.)
What does Preferences "Vault for Saving" mean? If I'm using online Family, which vault should I use, and what are the pros and cons?
A related issue: If I'm using only 1Password Family, will I be able to use 1Password locally if not connected to the internet? In other words, is there still a local backup of the 1Password data?
Another set of issues relate to sharing items and vaults. For example, my wife and I will each have our own vault, but would like to share certain items, such as bank accounts, and have one of us responsible for updating the item, but both seeing the updated item. Can a item within a vault be shared with a family member, or does the item have to be in a separate vault? If the latter, then do we need to change the vault we're using every time we need to access that item?
