Absolutely loved version 3. Below are the problems I detailed in an Email to AgileBits support. I have not gotten a response in 6 days. FWIW I reinstalled the browser extension for v.3 and use it despite v.4's many popup warnings about the wrong extension.

I have upgraded my family license from 1P3 to 4. Here are some of the problems I encounter and changes for the worse:
1. In the old Safari extension I could edit there. Now it takes me back to the Mac app.
2. When it takes me back to the Mac app, the site I left from, where I had a stored password is never selected-only the first in the list of logins
3. When I change a password on a site using the site's method, 1P does not save my username. I use the name used previously with the changed date appended for accuracy
4. Half of the time, when I go to check that the new password is entered in the Mac app, it is incorrect by a long ways.
These changes have rendered 1Password4 virtually unusable for me and for my wife. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

I have owned FM 2, FM Express, and upgraded a second time to FM Pro 3. It is absolutely highway robbery to ask me, who has supported Boinx paying 3 times for their software to not get any kind of an upgrade price. I wish I could use stronger words. It's their right, but they have the fresh scent of raw sewage as a company for doing this.

Ryde, I agree completely. I've been using Macs exclusively of 24 years now. Next to the iOSification of the operating system, I consider the Mac App Store to be the worst thing Apple has done to its users, ever. Well, perhaps neglecting the Mac Pro might edge it out, but it's close.

Still clutching my $20, waiting for tasks/reminders to be implemented.

Look, guys (or Marie). Some of us need to use an app with this functionality. If you can't make it work with Lion and Safari 5.1, please JUST TELL US so we can move on. If you're close to a solution, that would be welcome news. You have a loyal customer base waiting to hear something, anything.

Early this year I paid for the upgrade to v.2. This was based on their trumpeting BusyCal integration. On March 18, I notified them that this was not working unless iCal was open. Three days later I got a reply, "Hi Don.
I've just found out there is a known (now) bug regarding the recent build and BusyCalc {SIC}. We're working hard to fix it right now."
On April 18, another reply, "There is one in the works, I don't have an ETA on its release yet."
Soon I realized that this was due to Apple's switch to CalDAV, meaning iCal has to be open to sync with BusyCal. On June 18 I asked for a refund of the upgrade price based on the above and the fact that BusyCal support is STILL prominently displayed on the site (any calendaring app will have to have iCal open) and that based on the promise of a fix I have been waiting for 2 months for a fix.
The response was that they are unable to process a refund 60 days after purchase, as they use Fastspring. If they hadn't told me there was a known bug (which there really isn't) and promised to fix it, I would have been able to get a refund at that time. It's not the lousy $15 or whatever I spent. It's the fact that Second Gear was not truthful in their Emails or on their website and strung me along until it was too late.

I'm a teacher and have been using my ScanSnap S1500M to convert a lot of my resource and workbooks to PDF files. Beats running to the copier. Cumulatively, my school folder does grow pretty large.

I put this app to work yesterday with great results. For example, I took a 65 page book on writing with lots of graphics and obviously text, which was 37.9 MB. Ran it through PDFCompress and the result was 11.1 MB. Multiplied by the number of these PDF files I have, there will be a huge savings in disk space. Putting the original and the result side by side, the only loss in quality was a very slight amount of contrast and a tiny loss of crispness of text-very slight and acceptable for virtually any PDF I have, and would have been unnoticeable had I not compared out of curiosity. Excellent program.

Does not work in the current Lion seed. Sad to say, it looks like vaporware and I'll be stuck with the default Apple dock.

I wrote a comment below about wanting to know where all of the features they listed can be found. I'll say from the outset that I'm a version 1 user and may switch when Behind the Rabbit gets their Graphite design fixed so my photo appears in the banner as it used to. This is strictly a comment about Karelia and their marketing and support (lack thereof).
As a 1.x user I got the Email about the upgrade with a new features graphic (made with impressive). One of the features said customizable slideshows. Thought this must be explained somewhere??? Watched their video-all 7 parts. No mention of slideshows. Must be in their "How Do I...? " section. Searched thoroughly and no mention at all. Fine. I'll figure it out on my own, not that I should have to. After about 45 minutes of exploring my photo galleries (it's a commercial photography site in the making) and going from tab to tab in the Inspector, I finally stumbled upon a slideshow setting. I'm assuming it will work, although I don't want to publish another site with the design that isn't updated or didn't make the transition.
My point is that Karelia has made a huge deal out of their improvements and has neither listed all of these nor provided support for all of them. Also, a search of the developers who make themes for them show their tremendous frustration at having to rewrite virtually everything. Karelia couldn't have given them some lead time for this? If iWeb dies, I may have to start over with Freeway Express or RapidWeaver.

11 new features are listed here. I'd like to know something about the other 4 dozen+. Unlike most new releases and developer sites, there is no version history or listing of all the new features Sandvox may have to offer.

Broken today. After installing 10.6.7, I get a system message that it's incompatible software

After much correspondence with Plasq, LCC 2.4 causes a lockup when using Skitch.
Does anyone know how/where to find an older version, such as 2.2.2?

Used Fetch to go to the ftp site. Looked for older drivers for my Elite keyboard, but found only Windows .exe files.

dtruett1 replied on 12 Jan 2008
Thanks. I reinstalled 2.2 and most things work fine in Leopard, except... When I choose Elite Keyboard>Configure... Device Manager shows up as a partially drawn window with only a few keys showing, none of whom respond to a mouse click. At least most of my previous keys (the extra ones) work as before. Guess I'll have to live with not being able to remap any of them.
Another strange thing - when I activate F-Lock to use the Function keys in their normal Apple configuration, F12 won't open the optical drive anymore. It will if I deactivate F-Lock to use the Logitech specified keys. Go figure!
