I've been through pretty much every version of these organiser apps. The big pluses in EF - for me - are the Developer (been using SpamSieve for years with nary a problem) plus the transparent file storage. But I have some queries:
1. I've scanned the forum and can't seem to get a clear picture. Are EagleFiler tags searchable by Spotlight? Or is it on the To Do List. I would like to be able to search EagleFiler tags without having to drop from where I am back to the EF window.
2. I find the 'tags:Whatever' format of searching very clunky. I know that that there are 'Smart-ish Folders' that display files by tag, but I prefer use the search box rather than scrolling the Source Pane, so can a search 'Anywhere' include tags? And are saved searches on the To Do list?
3. I love the ability to have nested tags, so that, for instance, I can have a Top Level Tag - Camera - and off that nesteds, like software, websites, exposure, lenses etc. However, surely adding a nested tag should also add the major tag - that is, if I add the tag exposure, then it automatically adds the top-level tag, Camera? (Checkout the iPhoto plug-in Keyword Manager if I'm not being clear.) Otherwise what's the point of a nested tag?
