pardon a probably dumb q, but I'm new (2 mos.) to Mac after 20+ PC years, and new to 1P ...

I installed 1P on my Admin account on my iMac. Want to run it also from the Std. user account (which was created after I installed apps including 1P in the Admin Acct) but it won't let me install the 1P data there.

Running Setup Assistant from the Std. User account, I can't find the 1P Agile keychain in my Admin acct as an "existing" one when I'm logged into the Std. account.

How can I do this so I can use my 1P logins in the Std. User Acct.?

I copied the Agile keychain into the Std. account's home folder but both before & after I did that, when trying to get 1P to work in the Std Account I get an error message that the data is damaged/corrupted etc.


[Edited} --->I 've viewed the agile tutorials so I think I understand on a practical level how to use the dropbox & keychain, so thanks for any help you can supply or point me to.

I have installed DropBox in my Admin acct and the Agile keychain is now in there ... what next?

    Welcome the the forum, Jon!

    Simply make sure 1Password in both accounts points to the same .agilekeychain file. You can do this by double-clicking on the file.

    BTW, there is also a great video by Macworld on how to configure 1Password and Dropbox:

    Thanks! I saw that video, I think, but will go back & re-check it.

    Eureka! ... as they say.

    What didn't work before (trying to point to the keychain file that I copied into my Dropbox folder in the Std Account) just worked and the install went through & integrated 1P into Firefox. Thanks!
