Importing directly from save dialogue window

Getting stuff into Eaglefiler is usually pretty easy, especially for things like web pages and email. However, files created by programs such as Word, Excel, etc. require a bit more work. I have to save the file somewhere and then import the file into Eaglefiler as a separate step. Although not complicated, I tend to accumulate files in a temporary folder because I don’t remember to import into Eaglefiler as regularly as I should. What would be really neat is for Eaglefiler to modify the save dialogue box to directly import files and add tags right from the application creating the file.

EagleFiler 1.2 adds a “To Import” folder to each library. When you’re in another application, you can save a file in a “To Import” folder and EagleFiler will automatically add it to that library.
