Version 1.9.3 of EagleFiler is now available.

EagleFiler makes organizing and managing your information easy. It lets you archive and search mail, Web pages, PDF files, word processing documents, images, and more. Use it to collect information from a variety of sources. Browse different types of files using a familiar three-pane interface. Organize them into folders and annotate them with tags and notes, or leave everything in one folder and pin-point the information you need using the live search. Since EagleFiler stores its library in Finder format, you can use it in concert with the other tools in your Mac ecosystem.

EagleFiler is a digital filing cabinet, a research assistant, snippet collector, and document organizer. You can use it to write a journal, track all the files for a project or job, manage your bookmarks, save your favorite Web articles, store financial statements and receipts, run a paperless office, plan a trip, collect your course notes, archive your e-mail correspondence, search mailing list archives, research a purchase, remember recipes to cook or books to read, store scientific papers, sort photos, gather legal case notes, or assemble a scrapbook. It’s the most flexible tool on your Mac.

This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • First-class support for archiving, searching, and viewing e-mails.The Merge Mailboxes/Message Files command now works on heterogeneous selections, e.g. so that you can add a lone .eml file to an existing mailbox. This will preserve any tags or notes that you’ve added.
  • Improved importing of Web pages from various publications.
  • When importing from Evernote, if you’ve added a title to a note that contains a single attached file, EagleFiler now preserves that title when unpacking the attachment.
  • Made some optimizations to improve the performance of importing large numbers of small files at once.
  • Press F1 to import or Option-F1 import and add metadata all in one go.The capture key now works in Reeder 5.
  • When capturing from Outlook, EagleFiler now helps you to download messages that were only partially downloaded from the server so that they can be fully imported into EagleFiler.
  • If there’s an error capturing from Outlook, EagleFiler now reports which message was the source of the error.
  • EagleFiler Main WindowWhen capturing e-mail messages, EagleFiler now hides the progress window immediately when the capture is done.
  • EagleFiler now maintains its own error log file, so you can still access information for troubleshooting when the macOS system log isn’t working properly.
  • Added the Import From Apple Mail (Plain Text) script.
  • The software updater reports a more useful error message if you try to update EagleFiler while running it from the disk image. This should prevent confusion where you continue running an old version despite telling it to update.
  • Worked around an encoding bug in Apple Mail that could cause message data to be altered when using the Import From Apple Mail script.
  • Create as many tags as you want and assign colors and symbols so that they stand out.Fixed a bug where importing a folder would sometimes add tags from OpenMeta to the wrong files.
  • Fixed a bug where tag syncing during an import could cause a hang.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause metadata loss if you moved a record’s container while it was being imported.
  • Fixed a bug where the record viewer could have the wrong width when opening the window at a small size.
  • Fixed a bug where the source list outline view might be too narrow when re-opening a library.
  • Fixed a bug where the source list width wasn’t always properly saved, which could mess up hiding and showing that pane.
  • The Info inspector lets you add metadata such as tags, notes, and colored labels.Fixed a bug where undoing extracting a message from a mailbox required two undos instead of one.
  • Fixed an internal error when viewing a message in a mailbox whose file was missing.
  • Fixed a bug where a damaged Microsoft Word file could cause EagleFiler to import some bad metadata that would prevent it from being able to save its database.
  • Fixed a bug where EagleFiler would crash when trying to share a message from a missing mailbox file on macOS 11.
