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.
- EagleFiler is now fully compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
- The Fonts panel now has a menu for selecting the system font. This lets you use San Francisco on OS X 10.11, even though it is not selectable in the regular system Fonts panel. If you select a system font using the new menu, EagleFiler will adapt to always use system font for the version of the operating system that you’re currently running. In contrast, if you select Lucida Grande or Helvetica Neue, the font will stay fixed.
- The About, Software Update, and help windows now use the San Francisco font on OS X 10.11.
- Modernized code for the Xcode 7 compiler and the OS X 10.11 SDK.
- Added support for App Transport Security on OS X 10.11.
- Added full support for indexing .ics and .vcf files attached to e-mail messages.
- OS X 10.11 no longer includes the formail tool, so EagleFiler now includes its own copy. The Remove Duplicate Messages script has been updated accordingly.
- The capture key now works with Apple Mail on OS X 10.11.
- You can now use the Find panel in the notes text view.
- Optimized indexing of .bmp files attached to e-mail messages.
- Added more message attachment file types that can be indexed.
- The Polish velarized L is now treated like other accented characters for the purposes of indexing and searching.
- EagleFiler no longer tries to extract text from unknown message attachment types. This should make indexing faster and speed up searching using Match Partial Words by not filling the index with junk terms.
- Refined the search index’s definition of terms to make searches more accurate and to reduce index bloat.
- Improved the following sections of the manual:
- How does indexing in EagleFiler work?
- Importing Mail From Apple Mail
- Importing Mail From MailMate
- Importing Mail From Outlook
- Importing Web Pages and URLs
- When extracting a file’s contents for indexing, EagleFiler will now abort if it hasn’t finished after a few minutes, to work around a bug in OS X 10.10’s PDF reader.
- Added some esoteric preferences to work around hangs and crashes caused by the OS’s built-in support for .docx files.

- Worked around a Tidy bug that could cause a crash when indexing HTML e-mails.
- Worked around a bug in OS X 10.11 that could prevent EagleFiler from capturing from Apple Mail.
- Removed the application icon from the Open With menu title because it caused the text to appear too dark.
- Fixed a bug where menu items with attributed titles had the wrong font size.
- Fixed a bug where the sample text in the Preferences window’s font chooser text fields would sometimes get cut off.
- Fixed a bug where the contents of NOFRAMES tags could be displayed in HTML views.
- Fixed a bug where Software Update… would continue offering updates in the same session you had held down the Option key.
