Preferred Vault Preference Not Always the Case


Preferences -> General -> Always open to

Have two vaults, Primary and Archive. Preference is set to Always open to Primary. On occasion I switch to Archive (within main app and NOT preferences). Quit app, relaunch, Archive is the selected vault.

Expect Primary to be active as per the preference setting.

Primary is only active or selected if it was last used before quitting the app.

What am I missing? Is there another setting required?

    Greetings, Ed! ( @egoham )

    I don't think you're missing anything. :)

    Rather, you've discovered the behavior for the "Always open to vault" setting doesn't always match that description. It would be more accurately described as "Always open to vault when unlocking", or simply "Always unlock to vault".

    Does that correlate with how it works for you?

    I'll open a request to improve the wording of this, both in the app and where it's mentioned in our documentation. I'm pretty sure the current behavior is intended and will confirm it with our developers.

    Thanks for bringing this up, Ed. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
