EagleFiler 1.6.7

The following was posted on the EagleFiler blog:

Version 1.6.7 of EagleFiler is now available. This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • EagleFiler now waits to show the text inspector bar until you actually start editing an RTF document. This prevents it from repeatedly hiding and showing as you browse through a bunch of records.
  • If you press the capture key in the Notes app, EagleFiler will now show some instructions for importing from Notes.
  • If you press the capture key in Reeder, EagleFiler will now suggest how you can set up a hotkey in Reeder for importing into EagleFiler.
  • EagleFiler’s metadata backup files are now named .EagleFiler Metadata.plist. The initial period prevents them from cluttering file lists in iOS and Web services that don’t respect the traditional Mac flag for marking files as invisible.
  • Added the Importing From iOS section of the manual.
  • Improved the following sections of the manual:
  • In the contextual menu for the record viewer, you can now hold down the Option key to change Set Filename to Set Filename and Title.
  • If a file with a source URL is damaged or missing, you can now use the Open in Browser button in the Errors window to view the Web page (and perhaps import it again).
  • The Quick entry command is now AppleScriptable.
  • Added the Group Records script.
  • Added the Date From yyyymmddhhmmss Filename script.
  • Added the Import Some Safari Tabs script.
  • The Convert Plain Text to Rich Text and Convert Rich Text to Plain Text scripts now demonstrate how to use the create temporary folder script command.
  • The New Record and Label toolbar buttons now adjust if you choose the small toolbar size (requires Mac OS X 10.11).
  • EagleFiler now preserves the creation date when importing a folder.
  • EagleFiler no longer imports Prism files as text files.
  • When setting the selected records via AppleScript, EagleFiler will now change the selected source if the specified records aren’t in the current records list.
  • Faster indexing of media file e-mail attachments.
  • Metadata backups now include a transientRecordID field.
  • Improved the help message and error reporting when EagleFiler is unable to capture from Outlook.
  • EagleFiler now logs to Console if doesn’t find all of the expected Apple Mail messages to import.
  • Added RecordsListShowToolTips to the esoteric preferences.
  • Added ImportTitleFromFileContents to the esoteric preferences.
  • Added IndexingUsesAttributeModificationDate to the esoteric preferences.
  • Worked around an OS issue that could cause an error when importing from Yoink.
  • Worked around a rare problem where EagleFiler would sometimes erroneously report that there was no library open when you pressed the capture key.
  • Worked around an OS bug that could cause problems (incorrect metadata or missing content) when importing multiple Web pages as PDFs in quick succession.
  • Worked around a change in Mac OS X 10.11 that caused the .eml Spotlight importer to not import any text.
  • Worked around an OS bug that could cause a crash when using the contextual menu when viewing a PDF.
  • Worked around some issues with Outlook 2016 that could cause capturing to not work.
  • Worked around an Xcode bug that could cause a table header drawing glitch on Mac OS X 10.10.
  • Updated code for Xcode 7.2.
  • Fixed a bug where importing text via AppleScript could cause duplicate imports and an internal error on Mac OS X 10.11.
  • Fixed a bug in the URL importing error handling code.
  • Fixed a bug where setting the filename from the contextual wasn’t undoable.
  • Fixed a bug displaying a e-mail message with an empty HTML part.
  • Fixed a bug where Mac App Store receipt validation used the current date rather than the receipt creation date.
  • Worked around a Finder bug that could cause the disk image’s icons to be misaligned if the AppleShowAllFiles option was enabled.
  • Fixed the size of the distribution disk image window.

EagleFiler 1.6.7 works with Mac OS X 10.6.8 through 10.11. Older versions are available for older operating systems. For information about previous releases of EagleFiler, please see the version history.
