EagleFiler 1.7.5

March 21st, 2017 (EagleFiler)

Version 1.7.5 of EagleFiler is now available. This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • For consistency with Finder, the New Browser Window command now always makes a new window. As before, when you open a library EagleFiler follows the system preference to decide whether it should be tabbed, and you can use the + button in the tab bar or the New Tab command to make another tab for an existing window.
  • The Command-Up Arrow and Command-Down Arrow keyboard shortcuts no longer change the selection in the records list when their corresponding menu commands (Enclosing Record and Contents of Record) are disabled. This is consistent with Finder and should help prevent getting lost when you reach the top or bottom of the hierarchy.
  • When opening a record link, EagleFiler now deminimizes the window from the Dock, if necessary.
  • When a file in a subfolder of the To Import folder is skipped because it’s a duplicate, it’s now moved to the same relative location in the Unable to Import folder instead of the top level. This should make it easier to figure out where it came from.
  • Updated the Importing From iOS section of the manual.
  • The Capture Not Supported window no longer shows the Show Drop Pad button if the Drop Pad window is already visible.
  • EagleFiler no longer tries to import metadata files for Dropbox’s Selective Sync feature.
  • Acorn 5.6.4 fixes a problem that could cause Acorn to quit if it was launched as a result of EagleFiler asking it to open a file.
  • Improved the error reporting when moving files.
  • Documentation and Help menu links to c-command.com now use https instead of http.
  • Added the DeleteRecordsWithoutCommandKey esoteric preference, which prevents the Delete key from accidentally moving records to the trash when the Command key is not down.
  • Worked around a bug in Preview that could cause an internal error when importing a PDF page via drag and drop.
  • Partially worked around a bug in macOS 10.12 that could prevent some text from being properly indexed for searching. If this was affecting you, you’ll need to rebuild the indexes to see a change for existing records.
  • Fixed a bug where typing Command-Delete in a text editor or text field could move the selected record to the trash instead of deleting text to the beginning of the line.
  • Fixed a bug where an internal error could occur if you emptied the trash while EagleFiler was generating an icon preview.
  • Fixed a regression where EagleFiler would sometimes show records list columns that had been hidden.

EagleFiler 1.7.5 works with Mac OS X 10.6.8 through macOS 10.12. Older versions are available for older operating systems. For information about previous releases of EagleFiler, please see the version history.

Version 1.7.3 of EagleFiler is now available. This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • For new libraries created on macOS 10.12 or later, EagleFiler uses a different set of tag abbreviation symbols that are better suited for the Sierra fonts.

  • SOHO Notes is no longer being developed, but you can import folders or individual notes from it by dragging and dropping them onto EagleFiler’s Dock icon or into one of your EagleFiler library windows. SOHO Notes customers can get a discount on switching to EagleFiler by e-mailing proof of their purchase.

  • Improved the following sections of the manual:
  • Added some esoteric preferences for changing the colors EagleFiler uses for displaying plain text files.

SpamSieve 2.9.26

October 18th, 2016 (SpamSieve)

Version 2.9.26 of SpamSieve is now available. This is a free update that includes the following changes:

  • Works with Apple Mail under macOS 10.12.1. It’s easiest if you update to SpamSieve 2.9.26 before updating to 10.12.1. In any case, if you don’t see the SpamSieve commands in Apple Mail’s Message menu, be sure to choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu. Otherwise, with the SpamSieve plug-in not installed, Mail will move good messages to the spam mailbox without consulting SpamSieve.
  • Made various changes to improve SpamSieve’s filtering accuracy.
  • SpamSieve now tells Apple Mail’s junk filter when incoming messages are not junk (instead of only when they are junk). This should help prevent the confusing behavior of Mail displaying good messages in gold/brown text if its filter (or a server filter) disagreed with SpamSieve. Reminder: You can also have SpamSieve override the message text color by enabling AppleMailAllJunkMessagesUseBlackText in the esoteric preferences.
  • SpamSieve now uses the new os_log subsystem on macOS 10.12.
  • Adjusted the sizes of the Dock icon status indicators to work around a font change in macOS 10.12.
  • The version number of the Apple Mail plug-in is now synchronized with the version number of SpamSieve itself to reduce confusion for those using Mail Plugin Manager.
  • Added the Apple Mail - Mark Server Spam Messages as Read script.
  • Improved the following section of the manual:
  • Worked around a badly worded OS certificate error when checking for a software update.
  • Adjusted SpamSieve’s package resources to work around several code signing issues with macOS 10.12.
  • Fixed a bug where Apple Mail could repeatedly report the same error message.
  • Fixed a bug where the Portuguese localizer was not given credit in the About SpamSieve window.

  • Added DisplayPDFsWithQuickLook to the esoteric preferences to let you work around bugs in macOS 10.12’s PDFView.

  • Worked around a change in the macOS 10.12 font panel that could cause the wrong variant of the system font to be used when changing the font in the preferences.

  • Fixed a bug where the tab stops for the plain text editor didn’t auto-adjust for different fonts and sizes.
  • Fixed a bug where the tag abbreviation font in the source list didn’t match the records list and Tags inspector.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes the Drop Pad or capture key would would incorrectly report that no library was open.
  • Fixed a bug where image titles were sometimes not properly imported and indexed.
  • If EagleFiler is unable to find the messages to import from Apple Mail, it now logs the folders it was looking for them in to aid in troubleshooting.
