EDIT: Here’s an updated version which adds EagleFiler notes to the Spotlight Comments.
This script deletes EagleFiler records, while leaving the associated files in place. This process effectively hides the files from EagleFiler. OpenMeta tags assigned to the files in EagleFiler are preserved, and EF notes are added to Spotlight Comments “Hidden” files can be imported anew into EF, but they must first be moved out of the EF folder to another location. Most of the script is from Michael’s “Duplicate Records” script](http://c-command.com/scripts/eaglefiler/duplicate-records). Thanks, Michael!
(* Hide Selected Records from EagleFiler Version 2 This script deletes records from the EagleFiler library but keeps the copies of the files in place. OpenMeta tags applied in EF are transferred, and EF notes are added to Spotlight Comments. The script is based on "Duplicate Records" by Michael Tsai (http://c-command.com/scripts/eaglefiler/duplicate-records).
