EagleFiler makes managing your information easy. It lets you archive and search mail, Web pages, PDF files, word processing documents, images, and more. Use it to collect information from a variety of sources. Browse different types of files using a standard three-pane interface. Organize them into folders and annotate them with tags and notes, or leave everything in one folder and pin-point the information you need using the live search. Since EagleFiler stores its library in Finder format, you can use it in concert with the other tools in your Mac ecosystem.
EagleFiler in a nutshell:
- With a single keypress, import Web pages, mail messages, or any file on your Mac.
- EagleFiler stores them in an open format: regular files and folders that are fully accessible to your other applications.
- Optionally: encrypt the files, add tags, notes, color-coded labels, and other metadata.
- Browse by folder or by tag, or use the live search to find the information you need (faster than Spotlight).
- View, edit, or create documents directly in EagleFiler’s streamlined interface, or double-click to edit using another application.
EagleFiler is a digital filing cabinet, a research assistant, and a snippet collector. You can use it to write a journal, track all the files for a project or job, save your favorite Web articles, store financial statements, run a paperless office, plan a trip, collect your course notes, archive your e-mail correspondence, search mailing list archives, research a purchase, remember recipes to cook or books to read, store scientific papers, gather legal case notes, or assemble a scrapbook. It’s the most flexible tool on your Mac.
- Tag names can now contain spaces, which improves interoperability with Finder tags. The Search Query Syntax has been updated to support using quotation marks around tag names with spaces.
- Adjusted the way tag auto-completion works so that it’s easier to enter new tags whose initial characters are similar to existing tags but differ in case or diacritics; previously, the system would sometimes alter the initial characters that you had typed, making certain strings impossible enter by typing (though you could paste them)
- The system Share toolbar button (which we had to remove in EagleFiler 1.6.5) is once again supported.
- Updated the following sections of the manual:
- How can I rebuild a library?
- How do Finder tags work with EagleFiler?
- Importing Mail From Apple Mail
- EagleFiler no longer tries to import iCloud Drive temporary files.
- Updated to version 1.3.8 of the SkimNotes framework
- The section names in the source list are no longer in all caps, to match the current system apps.
- Renamed the To/Cc search scope to Any Recipient
- Worked around a macOS bug that could cause text in the records list to be unreadably condensed (with overlapping letters) when doing a search
- Worked around a macOS bug where the paperclip icon for e-mail attachments didn’t always respond to clicks; instead, the attachment names are now clickable
- Worked around a PDFKit issue that could prevent ejecting an encrypted library
- Fixed a bug where Reply to Message would use the From address instead of the Reply-To address
- Fixed a bug where a misleading error message would be presented if a secure connection could not be made to the software update server
- Fixed a bug where pressing Command-Delete while editing text in the records list would move the selected record to the trash instead of deleting the text to the beginning of the cell
- Modernized some font selection code
