There are various ways to combine projects into one master project.
Combine local Merlin projects – no Merlin Server involved:
If combining local projects of your local hard disk, you can select them all and drag onto Merlin‘s icon or double click them and select ‘combine’ or choose File > Combine Projects:
Combine shared Merlin Server projects:
If combining projects which are shared by Merlin Server, please proceed as shown here:
That is… you choose File > Combine Projects, add the projects and open them by “remote open”. If the new master is to be shared by the same Merlin Server, save the file first on your local disk and copy it in a second step into the ‘Projects’* folder of Merlin Server.
*) Or any other folder your Merlin Server shares.

When publishing a Merlin project and want to access it over the internet, port forwarding needs to take place. Users accessing the project over the internet call the external IP address of the router, and the router forwards connections to the Mac sharing the Merlin projects. Read here to improve your undestanding to connection requests.
If your router supports Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) or NAT Port Mapping Protocol*, you should enable “port forwarding” for the appropriate sharing service you need yours projects to be shared for in Merlin > Preferences > Sharing …
…priorly to enabling web sharing over File > Publish > Web > Start
Merlin will then calculate the @ symbol to contain the external IP address of the router and the @ icon will finally turn from red to blue.
In the screenshot sample above, port forwarding is enabled for web sharing (applying also for iPhone sharing) but not for project sharing. That’s fine, you don’t need to enable port forwarding for project sharing if you don’t want to allow Merlin users to remotely open your shared projects over the internet.
If however your router does not support UPNP, so you had to configure your router to do port forwarding, there is no reason to enable ’port fowarding‘ in Merlin preferences. Merlin won’t receive the external IP address of the router, as the router replies only if it speaks UPNP. And even if you enable “port forwarding” in Merlin, you still get a red @ icon when sharing.

From time to time, we get in support the following request:
I have lost my Merlin license, where can I find it?
Installed Merlin Server licenses are usually in /Library/Application Support/Merlin Server/Licenses.
In case you don’t have access to the Licenses folder, or the file had been deleted by mistake, and need to request a new copy of your license key, please start Merlin and select Help > Lost License or use a web form we’ve specially created for this purpose .
PS: Should you require a new installation of Merlin or Merlin Server, just download a new copy for free as found in our downloads area.
