Version 1.9.10 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:

  • Search to find the right document, and EagleFiler also highlights the search term within it.EagleFiler now supports Live Text, so that you can select and copy text in scanned PDFs without needing a separate OCR step (requires macOS 13).
  • EagleFiler now skips importing Emacs auto-save and backup files.
  • The notes field in the import options window now works better with Dark Mode.
  • Press F1 to import or Option-F1 import and add metadata all in one go.Scan for New Files will now update custom icons for folders in the source list, so it’s no longer necessary to close and reopen the library to see such changes.
  • Improved the error reporting when MailTags data can’t be read due to missing Full Disk Access.
  • EagleFiler is better able to figure out the source URL from some HTML files.
  • The Delete Empty Folders script is much faster and can now delete folders that are not empty but which contain only other empty folders (as can occur if duplicate files are removed during import).
  • Updated the Importing From iOS section of the manual.
  • Create as many tags as you want and assign colors and symbols so that they stand out.Worked around a macOS issue that could cause some HTML files to display as blank.
  • Worked around a MailTags bug that could cause an error when importing some Apple Mail messages. (The bug has already been fixed in MailTags but may still affect previously saved files.)
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when updating the source list.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when accessing system services from the contextual menu on the records list.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes the scroll position in a PDF would change when switching back to EagleFiler from another app.
  • EagleFiler Main WindowFixed a bug where custom titles for .eml files were not indexed for searching.
  • Fixed a bug where exact searches didn’t consider custom From values for .eml files.
  • Fixed a bug where MailTags metadata might not be imported from Apple Mail in some cases where it had not cached the tag information in Mail’s data store.
