Collect notes, e-mails, and Web pages on your Mac, and search them instantly. EagleFiler makes 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 standard 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, it works smoothly with your other favorite Mac applications.
EagleFiler in a nutshell:
* With a single keypress, import Web pages, mail messages, or any file on your Mac.
* EagleFiler stores them in an open format: regular files and folders that are fully accessible to your other applications.
* Optionally: encrypt the files, add tags, notes, color-coded labels, and other metadata.
* Browse by folder or by tag, or use the live search or smart folders to find the information you need (faster than Spotlight).
* View, edit, or create documents directly in EagleFiler's streamlined interface, or double-click to edit using another application.
EagleFiler is a digital filing cabinet, a research assistant, and a snippet collector. You can use it to write a journal, track all the files for a project or job, 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, gather legal case notes, or assemble a scrapbook. It's the most flexible tool on your Mac.
“It’s a vital tool for the digital pack rat.…The application’s tagging, note-taking, and searching capabilities make finding that one file you stored in EagleFiler a year ago and want to retrieve today a cinch.” —Macworld
“EagleFiler combines ease of use with an underlying ingenuity that makes it feel simple, fast, and lightweight. It’s packed with too many clever touches for me to list.” —TidBITS
“Using EagleFiler, I can now stop fussing with organization tools and just get myself organized.” —InformationWeek
- Tag names can now contain spaces, which improves interoperability with Finder tags. The Search Query Syntax has been updated to support using quotation marks around tag names with spaces.
- Adjusted the way tag auto-completion works so that it's easier to enter new tags whose initial characters are similar to existing tags but differ in case or diacritics. Previously, the system would sometimes alter the initial characters that you had typed, making certain strings impossible enter by typing (though you could paste them).
- The system **Share** toolbar button is once again supported.
- Updated the following sections of the manual:
- How can I rebuild a library?
- How do Finder tags work with EagleFiler?
- Importing Mail From Apple Mail
- EagleFiler no longer tries to import iCloud Drive temporary files.
- Updated to version 1.3.8 of the SkimNotes framework.
- The section names in the source list are no longer in all caps, to match the current system apps.
- Renamed the **To/Cc** search scope to **Any Recipient**.
- Worked around a bug that could cause text in the records list to be unreadably condensed (with overlapping letters) when doing a search.
- Worked around a bug where the paperclip icon for e-mail attachments didn't always respond to clicks. Instead, the attachment names are now clickable.
- Worked around an issue that could prevent ejecting an encrypted library.
- Fixed a bug where "Reply to Message" would use the From address instead of the Reply-To address.
- Fixed a bug where a misleading error message would be presented if a secure connection could not be made to the software update server.
- Fixed a bug where pressing Command-Delete while editing text in the records list would move the selected record to the trash instead of deleting the text to the beginning of the cell.
- Modernized some font selection code.

Most Helpful Reviews
EagleFiler is the best of the bunch. - I am a big fan of EagleFiler and suggest you read my review of version 1.5.3 which you will find under the "All Versions" tab. Suffice it to say that I have purchased and tried almost every application in this class and found all of the others lacking in some significant way. For me, EagleFiler stands alone as the one that meets all of my needs. With this most recent version (1.5.4) I would like to add one new point I forgot to mention in my earlier review: C-Command Software is very active about polishing and improving this product. Look at the list of "What's New in 1.5.4" above and you will see a pattern of great attention to detail. Don't let the price of EagleFiler scare you away. This is the best of the bunch and worth the money.
Buggy and complicated - I have purchased several different varieties of this type of app, and Eaglefiler might be the worst of them all. I have a brand new iMac, plenty of everything, and yet this app freezes when you open it. EVERY time. If you can get it to open you can get it to start it's work, but then it will hang again or give you some other type of error. A bigger issue is that some of the things listed on it's page simply are not true. Most of it centers around tag conversion, but there are a few others. So the bottom line is that it does not work the way it says it works. This was a huge waste of my time, as well as my money. Do not buy this unless you have a week to kill and want nothing to show for it.

no longer opens - With this update, the application no longer works. I get the error "application cannot be opened". I deleted the app and reinstalled but get the same result.
Tags with Spaces! - Woo hoo, tag can finally have spaces! I haven’t tested it yet, but the app shoud finally play nicely with my existing files (which was a major annoyance for me in the last version).
