1Password 4.0.5

Send Article to a Friend

AgileBits has released 1Password 4.0.5 with a couple of tweaks to make it easier to upgrade from 1Password 3, as well as a variety of other improvements and fixes. The update to the password management utility enhances clipboard interoperability with Carbon apps (such as BBEdit), sorts items within folders in 1Password mini, displays a message if 1Password is locked and attempting to quit with unsaved changes, fixes a problem with importing data from LastPass, and squashes a bug with folder syncing in Wi-Fi sync. The Mac App Store version also fixes an issue where Dropbox might not be detected immediately and a problem where changes in the master password did not sync to Dropbox. ($49.99 new from AgileBits and the Mac App Store, free update for those with a 1Password 4 license, 36.7 MB, release notes)

Check out the Take Control ebooks that expand on the topic in this article:

Comments about 1Password 4.0.5

1Password 4 has removed the ability to Search within the Secure Notes, which for me is a fatal flaw. (In iOS it was crippled in that and other ways, barely usable. Lots of copy-paste required.)
I'm wondering what to replace it with.
Perhaps Apple's new iCloud keychain will have enough capability?
