Sometimes there is more to the story. I contacted 1Password to see if their answer to my question matched their User Guide information. Here is the reply I received.

I wish I could give you a more satisfying answer, but this is going to be a challenge. The first question I'd ask is how many entries do you have? If you have, say, over 100, you might be willing to go through a bit of digital gymnastics to get your Roboform data into 1Password. If it's less, then I'd suggest manually re-entering the data in 1Password.

Here's what we know.

There's no direct method to export Roboform Mac data. However, Roboform for Windows 6.9 does allow exporting of your complete passcard data. But this would require obtaining Roboform Windows 6.9 (*not* their currently shipping version of 7.8.6.5, which does not support export.) Then, you could sync to your Mac data with Roboform for Windows 6.9 and then you'd have a means to export.

I can't assure you that this will work since I have not tried it, but based on what we know, it may work.

One thing to note is that 1Password will never "lock you in" like Roboform has. You can export all of your data to a usable CSV file at any time. We believe that your data is *your* data, and you should be allowed to do with it what you want. We don't think that artificial lock-in is beneficial to our customers.

If there's anything else I can do to help you, please let me know!

Now I need to go back to my PC and see what version of RoboForm I have. The program has a sync feature, so everything I added on my Mac should (I have not actually checked) be on the PC also. Rarely is anything as easy as it should be.
