Share Sheet not Working

Sometimes when trying to open a file via the share sheet, nothing will happen. This seems to be a one-off occurrence after a new install of the app, and appears to be resolved by quitting then restarting the app. Resolved in V1.8

SamuraiSafe Support Notes

  • Password AutoFill for macOS Big Sur (Updated)

    Password AutoFill (macOS 11.0 Big Sur or later) allows easy login using SamuraiSafe credentials to websites using Safari or other apps that support Password AutoFill. It is particularly convenient using TouchID on supported hardware.

  • Password AutoFill for iOS

    Password AutoFill allows easy login using SamuraiSafe credentials to websites using Safari, Chrome, Firefox or other apps that support AutoFill.

  • iOS 14 Issues

    • Recently opened SamuraiSafe safes are listed under Recent in the Files app. The SamuraiSafe iCloud container is marked private, so this probably shouldn’t occur. Report filed with Apple.
  • iCloud Troubleshooting for SamuraiSafe

    iCloud usually ‘just works’, but occasionally there are circumstances when it doesn’t. Common issues seen are a failure to sync a safe, or a ’stuck’ (partly complete) sync. If this happens there are few things you can try which usually resolve the issue.

  • Password History and Safe Format Upgrades

    SamuraiSafe on iOS and macOS now supports password history (retaining previously saved passwords). When enabled, the limit specified in Preferences indicates the maximum number of previous passwords to be retained for an entry. You can also create a custom limit for a particular entry.

  • Migration Tool: CSV to XML conversion

    SamuraiSafe for macOS directly imports XML format password files exported from either the Windows or Java versions of PasswordSafe. To assist in migration from other products, I provide a simple CSV to XML conversion program. It is an AWK script, which to run requires familiarity with the UNIX command line.
