1.6   Add Tags and Notes

Tags are somewhat like labels in the Finder, except that each record can have as many tags as you want. EagleFiler has some tags such as “unread,” “flagged,” and “replied” built-in, and it will import these from Mail. If you’ve created additional tags in Mail using MailTags, EagleFiler will import those as well. You can also create your own tags. Tags may be treated like keywords, and each tag also appears as a source in the browser window, which acts like a playlist in iTunes or an album in iPhoto.

Each document or message in EagleFiler can also have a note. Notes, which you can edit in EagleFiler’s Info inspector, are like comments in the Finder on steroids. They support rich text with multiple fonts, sizes, and colors. Notes can even include clickable links, graphics, tables, and lists. Use notes to write down information that goes with your documents, to excerpt key passages, to add your own comments or analysis, or to add links to related records in EagleFiler.
