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.

What is new in this release:

The Reveal button in the Errors window now works if multiple errors are selected. You can now hold down the Option key to open the files instead of revealing them; this is useful for loading attachments in Mail messages that were only partially downloaded.

What is new in version 1.7.1:

  • EagleFiler can now capture from Numbers and Microsoft PowerPoint.
  • Capturing from Apple Mail is faster when you have a large mail store.
  • EagleFiler now auto-hides and shows the ruler, like it does the text inspector bar, so that it's not shown when you aren't editing an RTF file. Among other benefits, this prevents the alignment and spacing buttons from moving back and forth between the ruler and the text inspector bar, depending on whether the latter was shown.

What is new in version 1.6.8:

  • EagleFiler can now capture from Numbers and Microsoft PowerPoint.
  • Capturing from Apple Mail is faster when you have a large mail store.
  • EagleFiler now auto-hides and shows the ruler, like it does the text inspector bar, so that it's not shown when you aren't editing an RTF file. Among other benefits, this prevents the alignment and spacing buttons from moving back and forth between the ruler and the text inspector bar, depending on whether the latter was shown.

What is new in version 1.6.7:

General
  • EagleFiler now waits to show the text inspector bar until you actually start editing an RTF document. This prevents it from repeatedly hiding and showing as you browse through a bunch of records.
  • If you press the capture key in the Notes app, EagleFiler will now show some instructions for importing from Notes.
  • you press the capture key in Reeder, EagleFiler will now suggest how you can set up a hotkey in Reeder for importing into EagleFiler.
  • EagleFiler's metadata backup files are now named .EagleFiler Metadata.plist. The initial period prevents them from cluttering file lists in iOS and Web services that don't respect the traditional Mac flag for marking files as invisible.
  • Added the Importing From iOS section of the manual.

What is new in version 1.6.6:

General
  • EagleFiler is now fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
  • Modernized code for the Xcode 7 compiler and the Mac OS X 10.11 SDK.The Fonts panel now has a menu for selecting the system font.
  • Added full support for indexing .ics and .vcf files attached to e-mail messages.

What is new in version 1.6.5:

General
  • Made various optimizations so that EagleFiler is faster at viewing and searching large numbers of records.
  • The Add Link.../Edit Link... command in The Format Menu now has a keyboard shortcut of Command-K.
  • On Mac OS X 10.10, Helvetica Neue is now the default font for the source list. This can be overridden in the preferences.
  • Improved the fonts in the About and Software Update windows.
  • The secondary sort in the records list is now always the date, which should be more useful and predictable.
  • Added accessibility label in the Software Update new News windows.
  • Mac OS X 10.10 removed support for the Share toolbar button, so now EagleFiler only displays it on Mac OS X 10.8 and 10.9.
Importing
  • Improved importing of old Apple Mail mailboxes.
  • EagleFiler no longer tries to import Libre Office lock files or NSData temporary files.
  • TouchDraw files are no longer imported as text files.
  • When capturing from Outlook, EagleFiler is better able to handle delays or failures of Outlook to return a message's headers.
  • When capturing from Preview, EagleFiler now reports a better error if the capture failed because the document had not yet been saved.
  • When importing selected Web text via Services, if the source URL is a nonsensical value EagleFiler no longer sets it as the source URL or appends it to the RTF text.
AppleScript
  • It is now possible to import from the clipboard via AppleScript.
  • You can now get and set the current library (e.g. for capturing purposes) via AppleScript.
  • Updated the sample AppleScripts to use universal type identifier instead of kind.
  • The Import Examples script now shows how to create a PDF service.
  • The Import From Outlook script now preserves flags and categories from Outlook as tags in EagleFiler.
  • Added the Date From Filename script.
  • Added the Delete Empty Folders script.
  • Added the Tag PDFs that Need OCR script.
Error Handling
  • If the system fails to save the list of files to be opened, EagleFiler will now retry. This should fix a problem where you would tell EagleFiler to open a library and nothing would happen.
  • If EagleFiler detects that one of its files is missing, i.e. that the application is damaged, it now presents a better error message.
  • Improved the error reporting when a temporary folder cannot be created.
  • Improved the error reporting when a metadata backup fails.
  • EagleFiler will now automatically recreate the Trash folder if it is missing.
  • If The To Import Folder gets deleted after the library is already open, EagleFiler will now automatically recreate it.
  • Improved the error handling when the system doesn't provide the proper data for drag and drop.
  • Better handling of memory errors when backing up metadata.
  • Added logging to track down the source of an error when indexing files.
  • EagleFiler now shows a better error message if you enter an invalid name when creating a new library.
  • EagleFiler will now clear a library's temporary items folders when opening the library, so that unneeded files don't build up if the library was not cleanly closed.
  • Reworded the "Forget" alert.
  • Added esoteric preference to disable Growl in case of crashes.
Bug Fixes
  • Worked around a bug in Mac OS X 10.10 that could cause the name of the selected source to be unreadable when the source list didn't have focus. (The name may still be unreadable if you toggle the Reduce transparency setting in the Accessibility preferences pane while your library window is open.)
  • Worked around a toolbar button validation bug on Mac OS X 10.6.
  • Fixed a bug where logged timings were inaccurate.
  • Fixed a bug where some user interface text was shown in the wrong font on Mac OS X 10.10.
  • Fixed a bug where Microsoft PowerPoint files (and some other files that did not have 64-bit Spotlight importers) were not indexed.
  • Fixed a bug where importing via AppleScript and asking for options did not return the imported record when using the text, plain text, or stationery parameter.
  • Fixed a bug on Mac OS X 10.10 importing selected text from Apple Mail via Services where importing took a long time, the Web archive was not directly viewable, and the filename was a UUID.
  • Fixed a bug where some Markdown files were imported as mailboxes instead of as text files.
  • Fixed a regression that could cause an error when emptying the trash.
  • Fixed a bug where EagleFiler would incorrectly think that files with upside-down Unicode characters were missing.
  • Fixed a bug checking volume case sensitivity.
  • Fixed a bug redirecting text editing key commands to the record viewer.
  • Date formatters now use the POSIX local where appropriate.

  • Tagging lots of records at once is much faster.
  • Updated the Web archive to PDF script for compatibility with EagleFiler 1.6.3 and later.
  • Added improved instructions for installing and running supplemental AppleScripts.
  • Updated and improved the following sections of the manual:
    - Copy Record Link
    - How can I access my library from multiple Macs?
    - How can I put my library on my iPhone?
    - How does indexing in EagleFiler work?
    - Importing From a Scanner
    - Importing Mail From MailMate
    - Library Folders
  • If Outlook is slow to respond when capturing, EagleFiler now logs some information to Console to help diagnose the problem.
  • Worked around a bug in Mac OS X 10.10 that could prevent changing fonts from the Preferences window.
  • Worked around an OS bug that prevented bookmark files from being resolved.
  • The About EagleFiler window now uses the new system font on Mac OS X 10.10.
  • The About EagleFiler window now uses the system language names when crediting localizers, to reduce the number of strings that localizers need to keep up-to-date.
  • Increased the font size in the Software Update... window on Mac OS X 10.10.
  • Fixed a bug where setting a record's tags via AppleScript didn't always work properly for non-ASCII tag names.
  • Fixed a bug capturing from Outlook when there were empty messages.
  • Fixed a bug where capturing didn't work with newer versions of Together and Yojimbo.
  • Fixed a bug where temporary files from indexing were not cleaned up promptly.

What is new in version 1.6.3:

  • Added an EagleFiler Import command in the system Share menu for importing URLs to EagleFiler (requires Mac OS X 10.10). You can hold down the Option key to have EagleFiler bring up its options window before importing.
  • Modernized lots of code and removed old code that's no longer needed for compatibility with legacy OS versions.
  • Made lots of optimizations to improve EagleFiler's performance and reduce its memory use. Some highlights are:
    - Indexing e-mail messages is faster, particularly for messages containing attached files of common types.
    - Indexing e-mail HTML messages is much less I/O intensive, which should make EagleFiler more responsive on Macs with spinning disks.
    - Syncing tags with the Finder is faster.
    - Optimized the date formatter to work around a performance regression in Mac OS X 10.10.
  • EagleFiler now reports to Notification Center when it finishes an import.
  • If you are importing a URL and specify a title in the options window, the title is now used for the filename as well.
  • The Command-Tab switcher will now change you to the space containing the current main window, rather than staying on the current space if the Drop Pad was already visible there.
  • Improved compatibility with MailTags.
  • Improved compatibility with BitTorrent Sync.
  • The Backup Metadata command now backs up the creation date, modification date, and file label. EagleFiler does not restore these, since they might be older than the values in the filesystem, but they are now in the backup to enable possible restores in the future when files are passed through a lossy cloud.
  • EagleFiler is better able to import and merge malformed mbox files that have leading whitespace.
  • EagleFiler is better able to recover from a variety of file ownership and permissions problems.
  • If EagleFiler encounters empty messages when capturing from Outlook, there is now an option to skip all of them so that you don't have to click a button for each message.
  • It is now possible to disable tag syncing on a global or per-library basis. This is described in the How do Finder tags work with EagleFiler? section of the manual.
  • Added the Copy Notes to Spotlight Comments script.
  • The How does indexing in EagleFiler work? section of the manual now describes some new logging options that you can use to isolate the source of the problem if searching or indexing is slow.

    - How can I rebuild a library?
    - Importing Mail from Airmail
    - Save PDF to EagleFiler
  • Updated and improved the following sections of the manual:

    - Importing Mail
    - Importing Mail From PowerMail
    - Importing Web Pages and URLs
    - The To Import Folder
