Thank you for making the effort, and informing both us and other users of your experiences. Feedback like yours is extremely important for us when deciding priorities going forward.
We do have a plan for “password based” key sharing, i.e. alternate passwords very similar to having different passwords for different files.
However, just to be transparent, we are trying to make AxCrypt really great and to do so we need resources. This means that most, if not all, future improvements will require a paid subscription of some form.
I am happy you’re happy with AxCrypt 2 and found a way to manage the transition. I’m not as happy to hear that you find AxCrypt 2 harder to use than AxCrypt 1 – the intention has been the opposite, so we’ll have to improve that! Thank you once again.
