Collect notes, e-mails, and Web pages on your Mac, and search them instantly. EagleFiler makes organizing and 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 familiar 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 or smart folders 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, snippet collector, and document organizer. You can use it to write a journal, track all the files for a project or job, manage your bookmarks, save your favorite Web articles, store financial statements and receipts, 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, sort photos, gather legal case notes, or assemble a scrapbook. It’s the most flexible tool on your Mac.
“It’s a vital tool for the digital pack rat.…The application’s tagging, note-taking, and searching capabilities make finding that one file you stored in EagleFiler a year ago and want to retrieve today a cinch.” —Macworld
“EagleFiler combines ease of use with an underlying ingenuity that makes it feel simple, fast, and lightweight. It’s packed with too many clever touches for me to list.” —TidBITS
“Using EagleFiler, I can now stop fussing with organization tools and just get myself organized.” —InformationWeek
- EagleFiler now uses adaptive color mapping for rich text records and notes (in addition to plain text records and e-mails, as in previous versions) so that you automatically see light text on a dark background when your Mac is running in Dark Mode. This can be controlled using the “DarkTextBackgroundInDarkMode” setting in the esoteric preferences. The standard Light Mode colors are written to disk so that the files still display properly on other Macs and platforms.
- Fixed a bug with the “Add Sketch...” command. This lets you draw on your iPhone or iPad’s screen and import the image directly into EagleFiler without having to transfer a file.
- Customers migrating from Gmail, e.g. after the announcement that free G Suite plans would be discontinued, can move their e-mail archive to EagleFiler as described in the “Importing Mail From Webmail/Gmail” section of the manual.
- The “new look” version of Outlook doesn’t yet support AppleScript. Thus, if you press the capture key, Outlook will incorrectly report to EagleFiler that no messages were selected. In such situations, EagleFiler will now offer to turn off “New Outlook” for you. You can then restart Outlook and proceed with the capture.
- When capturing from old versions of DEVONthink, EagleFiler can now preserve the URL, label, and tags. (This was already supported for newer versions.)
- You can now press the Delete key when Trash is selected in the source list as a shortcut for “Empty Trash...”.
- If you delete the last folder or mailbox in the source list, EagleFiler now selects the previous source instead of selecting Trash.
- Improved the performance of the source list when using the “RecordsListLabelUnderlineStyle” setting in the esoteric preferences.
- The “How can I access my library from multiple Macs?” section of the manual now links to the scripts that help you rename files in accordance with Microsoft OneDrive’s restrictions.
- Updated the “Importing Mail From Outlook” section of the manual to work around an Outlook bug using saved smart folders.
- Updated the “Applications That Support Capture” section of the manual.
- Worked around a bug where WebKit could hang when cleaning up its preferences.
- Worked around a bug in Apple Mail that could prevent it from being able to import a message with an empty body. EagleFiler will now “fix” such messages when importing them, so that Mail will be able to import EagleFiler’s native mailbox file storage. If you already have such messages in EagleFiler, exporting the selected messages will create a new mailbox file that Mail can read.
- Worked around a WebKit bug that could cause importing certain sites to never complete.
- Fixed a problem where an AppleScript timeout could make importing messages with MailTags very slow.
- Fixed a regression (due to a macOS change) where opening a library from within the import options dialog didn’t work because the open panel would be behind the options dialog.
- Updated to version 1.5.2 of the SkimNotes framework.
