AgileBits has released 1Password 4.0.3 in response to sync problems related to Dropbox that had bedeviled many users. Now available in the Mac App Store, version 4.0.3 resolves a problem that could cause syncing with Dropbox to stop after 1Password mini was restarted. (If you’re not familiar with 1Password mini, which was recently introduced with the release of 1Password 4.0, check out “1Password 4 for Mac Better Than Ever,” 3 October 2013, for an overview of the new features, and “Take Control of 1Password” for complete documentation.) Unfortunately, 1Password 4.0.3 doesn’t seem to solve a second bug that prevented instant syncing of new changes. Until that’s addressed by a soon-to-be-released update, you can force a sync by locking or unlocking 1Password or switching vaults. AgileBits is still running a temporary launch sale on its site and in the Mac App Store where you can purchase a new license for $39.99 or upgrade for $24.99. ($49.99 new, free update for those with a 1Password 4 license, 32 MB)
ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut
For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.
You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.
