I have these suggestions for the transfer:

Everything is fine and now I can check for Pwned passwords, use travel mode and provide support for the best and most useful software I had ever used. Thank you.
The transfer itself was perfect, except I did not know it while I was doing it.
I had secondary “Demo” vault and I was not able to delete the Primary vault on my second Mac. The first Mac where I did the transfer, offered to delete the Primary vault and it worked. The second Mac had Primary and Demo vaults with the Primary one setup as default for saving new items. Again, I did not know this since normally I only use one vault. Had I saved an item on this Mac after the transfer, but before I figured out how to delete local Primary vault, it would have been lost because there is no sync between the standalone Primary vault and “new” Membership Private vault after the transfer is finished. I was worried that I will delete the wrong vault, this would sync and all my data would be lost. Again, everything worked great, BUT I did not understand it at the time. I turned off WiFi and shut down my first Mac so it preserves the data, I turned off WiFi on my second Mac during its transfer.
All I’m trying to say, please provide more info for different scenarios (single vault vs. multiple vaults and its relation to deleting Primary vault) with screenshots. No videos, because during the transfer it is nearly impossible to refer to a video for a specific item.
I turned off my Dropbox sync during the transfer so my data file stayed preserved and encrypted on Dropbox. If something went wrong, I reasoned that I could always return to the standalone version, sync the file and open it with my master password. I will delete it in few days from Dropbox, but it should be safe there since it is encrypted. I only thought of this when I was transferring my iPhone and iPad with Macs finished.
You mention to check that everything is fine before the local Primery vault is deleted. I have no idea how to check my 300 plus items in 1PW properly.
So you may consider to add additional and optional steps at the appropriate part of the transfer process:
- Turn off current sync such as Dropbox
- Designate new Private vault as default on each device
- Use Membership account for a little while (from few minutes to few days, user to decide) until comfortable that everything is working fine
- Delete local vault(s)
Thank you for great password manager.
