Manage Multiple ChronoSync Documents

If you have multiple ChronoSync documents and need to run your syncs or backups manually, you may find it taxing to open each ChronoSync document and execute it manually. There are two easy methods to simplify managing multiple ChronoSync documents.

  • You can add the ChronoSync documents to a Container document. A Container holds multiple ChronoSync documents and enables you to control several ChronoSync documents as if they were one document.
  • You can make use of the Scheduled Documents Manager window to collect and organize commonly used ChronoSync documents without scheduling them.

Both methods allow you to schedule or manually run your syncs and backups.

1Password 4.1.1

Send Article to a Friend

AgileBits has released 1Password 4.1.1 with the option of updating an existing Login password directly in the browser extension. And if you have more than one Login for a site, you can choose which one you want to update. The new release also adds a new multi-column display option, a print feature that can handle individual items or a list, the capability to search across all fields, and localizations for Dutch and Afrikaans. It also fixes a problem where syncing won’t start automatically after items are imported and a bug that created generated passwords for “com.apple.Safari” instead of the current Web site.

The Mac App Store version of 1Password is set to be updated to version 4.1 with these same changes (4.1.1 is for those who purchased through AgileBits). However, 1Password remains stuck on version 4.0.8 at the Mac App Store as of this posting (which makes this writer question why he ever thought it was a good idea to buy his copy from Apple’s storefront). ($49.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members when purchased from AgileBits, free update, 35.6 MB, release notes)

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

Slowed down by entering passwords repeatedly? Learn how to let 1Password do the heavy lifting. With directions for 1Password 4 for the Mac, as well as 1Password for iOS, Windows, and Android, author Joe Kissell makes it easy to generate and use secure passwords, speed up online shopping, and share and sync Web logins and other confidential data.

Good point on the mistake of buying from the MAS. I bought v3 from the website and wish I'd have just gotten the upgrade from there.

I have 1Password 4.1.2 already :)

You need to remember though, that this is out of Agilebits hands. They submit the new update to 1Password to Apple when they release the new version to the wild via their website.
Then its up to Apple to get off their arse and approve it for the MAS and only then can we get it. Yes i too have the MAS .v BUT i am also on the iOS and Mac 1Password Beta program, so i get to see the new features and have them on my Mac anyways, so its a bit of a mute problem for me.

It is the same with any App out there, Smile Software as well i noticed, but its just a matter of Apple doing there job, and because its Agilebits, and they are always in the top 5, doesn't mean Apple plays favourites :)
