EagleFiler 1.4.1

October 28th, 2008 (EagleFiler)

EagleFiler 1.4.1 is now available. This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • The Tag Cloud window now supports tagging/untagging multiple records at once.
  • You can now setup a stationery file’s Spotlight comments so that new records created from that stationery have certain tags and/or notes.
  • EagleFiler now supports metadata AppleScripts to customize what happens when you create a new record from stationery. For example, for a journal entry a script could set the From to the name of the current user and set the filename based on the current date. This is described in the New Record ‣ Open Stationery Folder section of the manual.
  • The Quick Look window now works more like in the Finder. Instead of multiple windows, there’s now a single window whose content changes depending on what’s selected.
  • Added some toolbar shortcuts: Option-click the New RTF button to create a new plain text file, and Option-click the Tags button to open the Tag Cloud window.
  • EagleFiler can now display Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) images.
  • EagleFiler now displays XHTML files as rendered HTML rather than as XML source.
  • Faster tag searching in Anywhere searches.
  • EagleFiler now understands .url files.
  • Made some AppleScript improvements: creation and modification dates are now settable, the import command now has an option for importing a named stationery file, you can update record checksums, and you can set the contents of the search field. An example script shows how to initiate an EagleFiler search from LaunchBar.
  • When you click to edit in the File column, EagleFiler no longer selects the file extension. (Previously, this only worked when pressing Enter.)
  • When importing a selection of text via the Services menu, EagleFiler now stores the source URL if the text was in a WebKit-based view (requires Mac OS X 10.5). Due to a bug in Mac OS X 10.4, dragging and dropping text onto EagleFiler’s Dock icon now requires Mac OS X 10.5.
  • For consistency with the Finder, the Label column of the records list now shows “--” instead of “None” and sorts by name instead of number.
  • Now uses “&” as the default prefix when copying tags to the Spotlight comments.
  • Improved reporting of unexpected errors.
  • Undo now works when the Tag Cloud window is in the front.
  • Changed the zooming keyboard shortcuts so as not to conflict with the ones for Universal Access. (You can still use Command-- and Command-+.)
  • Fixed spacing of Set Title in contextual menu.
  • Added Help button to the Software Update window.
  • Removed extra space in contextual menu.
  • Fixed a bug trying to open the Find panel when EagleFiler was displaying an image.
  • Fixed a bug where some toolbar icons didn’t load if you weren’t running under an administrator account.
  • Fixed a bug where the Find panel didn’t always pick up the query from the search field.
  • Fixed a regression where messages in mailboxes could not be opened in Apple Mail when running on Mac OS X 10.4.
  • Fixed a regression where Spotlight comments on files weren’t preserved when importing, if you had Copy tags to Spotlight comments unchecked.
