Reset 1Password Keyboard Shortcuts – Solved

You’ll see from the 1password support site that there is a bug having to do with resetting the default shortcut keys. There are two versions of 1Password, one installed from their website and one installed from the app store. If you use the one from the app store, you an delete these two files to reset all the preferences: Folder: ~/Library/Containers/com.agilebits.onepassword-osx/Data/Library/Preferences/ Files com.agilebits.onepassword-osx.plist com.agilebits.onepassword-osx.plist.lockfile ps: You may want to make a backup of these.

I suspect the problem comes when you disable public sharing for the very first time and then you want to reactivate it again.
