Ok, I must be daft, because I simply can't get this to work. I recently signed up for 1Password for Families to try it out. After doing all the setup on the Web, I went to add my Family setup to 1Password on my laptop (MBP w/ Retina running 10.11.4 with 1Password 6.2.1), and found that under Preferences... | Teams that if I clicked [+] I was presented with the option to either [Scan QR Code] or [Sign In Manually]. Since I had the QR code from the Emergency Kit, figured I'd give that a try.
But no matter what I do, I can't seem to get it to take. I click the button [Scan QR Code], which brings up a transparent window. I open the Emergency Kit PDF, move the QR window over it, but nada. And there's no button to click on to say "Scan Now", etc. I tried hitting the SPACEBAR, RETURN key, all the usuals one might have used IF such was required. But all for naught.
Now I get that encryption is hard, and I truly appreciate all that AgileBits is doing here. I'm about 1/2 through the whitepaper as I truly do want to understand how they've done what they've done. And there's no doubt in my mind that some things will simply never be easy. But this seems more an issue with a basic screen grab/UI. And I'm guessing somewhere I must be doing something stupid here.
But simply put, it appears to me that the QR code scanner feature in the OS X version of 1Password isn't working. Has anyone else gotten it to work, and if so, what am I missing?
If not, hopefully someone from AgileBits will see this.
