11 important updates 2021:

1. Support ALL types of file

Eagle officially allows you to import all types of files. You don't need to organize ZIP, RAR, EPUB, GDOC, DMG, etc files in a separate organizer, helps you save a lot of time.


2. Actions

  • By setting shortcuts, you can combine 'categorize, tagging, rating' into one click. Avoiding repeating multiple common actions.
  • You can also use this function to set the 'custom tags or shortcuts to folders'.
  • The setting of shortcuts can be anything you're familiar with, including non-alphanumeric keys, e.g. :`~,/';:"<>[]{}|


3. Saved Filter

We add the 'Saved Filter' feature, which would let you save the filter conditions for later use.


4. Recent Used

A new category of 'Recent Used' was added at the left-sidebar. You can quickly find the recently used or viewed files, which provides you a new way of managing documents.


5. Batch create folders

  • Supports ' creating folders by copying multiple cells of texts'. No need to create new ones by clicking ' new folder' one at a time.
  • Supports the 'duplicate folders' function, letting you create the same folder hierarchies without repetitive actions.

6. Customize aspect ratio in 'Shape filter

After the fixed aspect ratio filter, we now offer you the function to search images by setting customize aspect ratio! Making it more convenient to search and organize images with diverse sizes.


7. Add files or folders to other libraries

Add the feature of 'copy files or folders to other libraries', letting you organize different libraries with ease.


8. Custom thumbnail

Add the 'custom thumbnail' so you can set up befitting preview thumbnails for files. You can also change the thumbnail to the most important part of the file, setting up an efficient browsing environment.


9. Navigator

Add the 'navigator' function so that you can move the window at the bottom-right corner to study the detail of an image.


10. Fit to window

You can hardly see the detail when looking at a long picture or a webpage screenshot. Now with the 'fit to window' function, you can browse a file more quickly and convienient.


11. Hover preview YouTube / Vimeo videos

It's hard to recall the content of a video by just watching a stock-still thumbnail. But once you import videos into Eagle, you can preview them by hovering on them, helping you find a file you want more efficiently!
