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 now supports tabbed windows (requires macOS 10.12). A single window can have multiple tabs for either a single library or for different libraries. You can show the tab bar from the View menu. There are commands to manipulate tabs in the Window menu. Clicking the + button in the tab bar creates a new tab for the current library, equivalent to the New Browser Window command.
- Added support for capturing from Apple Mail on macOS 10.12.
- The Remove Duplicate Messages script now works if you have selected mailboxes in the source list rather than the records list.
- Added the current records script property, which returns the selected records in the records list or the source list, depending on which list has focus.
- The guid property on records is now available from AppleScript.
- When you use the Export… command to generate a new mbox file for the selected messages, EagleFiler now uses Unix- instead of Mac-style linebreaks, since more e-mail products now support the former.
- Made various code modernizations.
- EagleFiler now shows an empty Container column when the file is directly in the Files folder, as this is more clear than showing Records.
- When reporting that a file is damaged, EagleFiler now shows the relative path rather than just the filename, to make it clearer which file has a problem.
- The Errors window is better at displaying filenames containing slashes.
- EagleFiler reports a better error message if it finds that an Apple Mail message file is empty.
- On macOS 10.12, EagleFiler no longer shows its Select Next Tab and Select Previous Tab menu items because they duplicate the new system ones.
- Made some changes to the way EagleFiler generates mbox files to prevent Thunderbird’s importer from getting confused.
- Improved the following sections of the manual:
- How can I access my library from multiple Macs?
- Importing Mail From Apple Mail
- Importing Web Pages and URLs
- Sending in an Error Report
- Renamed "Mac OS X" to "macOS" throughout the app and documentation.
- Tried to work around an OS issue where sometimes libraries were not added to the Open Recent menu.
- Fixed a bug reading messages that have DOS linebreaks, which could lead to exported mbox files not importing properly and could affect the display and indexing of certain messages.
- Worked around an OS bug that could cause files in the To Import folder not to be imported promptly.
- Fixed a bug where EagleFiler did not launch on macOS 10.12.
- Fixed a bug that caused EagleFiler to report an error when opening a library on macOS 10.12.
- Worked around an OS bug that caused problems for tag completion using composed character sequences.
- Added a workaround for a PDFView crashing bug in macOS 10.12.
- Fixed a regression where tagging from the Record menu didn’t work.
- Fixed a bug where edits to a record’s tags could be lost if you moved it without the tags bar losing focus.
- The distribution disk image is now signed.
- OS X 10.6.8 or later
