I renamed the files and it was ignored (continued to show me just the text files). Then I found I could actually choose the file from the folder. The name of the file is now greglist.html but, when I tried this, I was told there was nothing to import. I could probably tell your program that we are dealing with a txt file but I think the formatting would do that one in.
Its kinda interesting in that the file is actually a formatted text file (2 columns and each column is broken into 2 more columns) I was going to send you part of the file but it morphed into 2 columns and was not accurate. I was thinking of sending the entire file but that would include all my passwords (a 50 year accumulation) and that wouldn't really be all that wise.
I also thought that, perhaps, choosing "windows html" might have your program thinking I am on a windows machine - I am not.
I am also considering converting the html file to txt using libre office writer. Here is what one looks like after such (access for my router)::
Here is another:
So, basically, I am stopped...................
I am using ubuntu 18.04.3
I am trying to import an .htm file created by roboform
I went to files/import and choose html file windows (I used a windows 10 machine). I went to my documents folder where greglist.htm resided. I tried to import the file (greglist.htm) from my documents folder but it only listed the 2 .txt files in that folder and not the .htm folder. So I tried to exit (2 windows) and thought I had. Then I thought I would try again. It came up with the export screen again, this time it choose JSON and its stuck. I can shut it down but, everytime I bring it back up its stuck on the import screen and will not move. I figured out how to get back to the menu so its no longer stuck but, still, I can shut it down and it always comes back to export which I can't make work. I would send a copy of a log file but can't find any.
I have, incidentally, been messing with this stuff for over 50 years so have some small knowledge of how its supposed to work.
Thank you for the reply..........
I will be using this on something like 4 computers and will store the file on the cloud (I think you are offering a one for a 1 time fee of about 10 bucks? Since I tend to ignore my phone, except for calls from my wife, I will probably not be connecting that.
Oh, I don't mind paying for this service - you guys gotta eat!
Thank you for the response.
I think this is the same as getting a notification/response? What I would like to do is request responses for any post I might post. This is pretty much standard for most forums I have been on.
Do I have to set the "Notify me of replies" everytime I post something or is there a place to set it permanently? II have searched and found nothing)
I have now installed enpass, assigned a password, ready to import from roboform. You have a lifetime option for 39.99 (I think), anyway, I clicked on that and it apparently wants me to download and install - which I have already done.
Anyway - how do I now buy this?
I am running with ubuntu 18.04.3
I just installed enpass, brought it up, and created a password. Then I cleverly lost that password. So, I then removed enpass and reinstalled enpass. When I installed it I didn't purge so it still thinks its the previous installation. This means I can't login and my secret password remains a secret.
Before I make another run at this I thought I would try and get some advice on how to do it right.
I have now reinstalled again and failed again. Then I removed enpass again then did a --purge then did a search for 'enpass' and deleted EVERY instance of enpass. then I reinstalled and still have the same problem.
I have been reading about importing roboform data. Seems there might be a problem so I thought I would ask if that problem no longer exists or not. The last posting I found was in april of 2019.
I am running with ubuntu 18.04 and have to find myself a new password manager. I can use my wife's windows machine to get my password info into a file. Oh, I also swear I saw something that inferred another way to import roboform passwords by sending you the roboform information and you have an program to take it from there - was there something like that?
trying to import from roboform
since there are no more replies it seems that its not possible to convert/import roboform data?
How about this. I have another password program called Revelation. I use this as a kindofa backup and its barebone. I can export their data file and it looks like:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<revelationdata version="0.4.14" dataversion="1">
<field id="generic-password"> xxxxxxxx</field>
<name>Actiontec c2000 - main router</name>
<field id="generic-username"> jgw</field>
