2.2   Installing EagleFiler

Drag the EagleFiler icon onto the Applications folder. Double-click the Applications folder to open it. Double-click the EagleFiler icon to launch it. Eject the EagleFiler-1.6.2 icon in the sidebar.

System Services

Please see Enabling EagleFiler’s Services in the Services section of the manual.

PDF Service

If you purchased via the Mac App Store, due to Apple’s guidelines, EagleFiler cannot automatically install the PDF service that adds the Save PDF to EagleFiler command to the Print dialog. To install the PDF service yourself, open the folder:

/Users/<username>/Library/PDF Services/

(See How can I open the Library folder?.) Select the EagleFiler application in the Finder. Choose File ‣ Make Alias. Drag the new alias into the PDF Services folder and rename it to Save PDF to EagleFiler.


It is recommended that you also install Growl to take full advantage of EagleFiler’s notification features, although this is not required.
