File Properties

This shows the file’s name, kind, size, and dates, as well as EagleFiler metadata such as the title, source URL, and from. These are described in the Records List section of the manual.

If the file didn’t have an embedded title (or you set the title to be blank), EagleFiler will use the filename (without the extension) as the title, and the title will stay in sync with the filename if you rename it.

This is the Finder label of the file. For more information, see the Set Label section.
This shows the tags assigned to the record. You may find it more convenient to create and assign tags by typing them in the text field than by using the Show Tags command.
Notes support rich text, clickable links, embedded graphics, tables, etc. Most of the commands for editing notes are in the Format menu. You can use the Copy Record Link to copy a link to an EagleFiler record; then paste the link into another record’s note so that you can easily find one record while viewing the other. As a shortcut, you can type Option-Tab to start a bulleted list or Option-Shift-Tab to dedent the current list item. EagleFiler automatically adds the “note” tag to records that have notes, and removes it from ones that don’t.

To make changes to more than one record at once, you can use the Batch Change… command.
