Controlling Merlin Project With the Keyboard

Charge Apple Magic Mouse

Do you sometimes feel the same way, you absolutely have to finish a job, but you forgot to charge the wireless mouse? With the current Magic Mouse from Apple, you have a problem because you can't use it while it's charging. If you are lucky, you still have a mouse as a spare. I do not have one.

Good thing I like to work with the Mac keyboard shortcuts anyway, so I know many by heart.

⌘S for saving a file or
⌘P for opening the print menu

are regularly in use - even if the mouse is not exactly down.

The Pareto Principle

I'm sure your workday starts much like mine: I start with a cup of coffee in hand, check my calendar and the emails I received overnight. Then I create my to-do list and prioritize the tasks for the day.

There are many techniques to decide what needs to get done and in what order. Commonly used is the Pareto Principle to determine and prioritize tasks that have the greatest impact. This is how you increase your productivity.

Welcome to The New Merlin Project Forum!

Merlin Project Forum

After we buried the Google forum with Merlin version 2 a long time ago, our focus was on Xing and LinkedIn until now. Now that Xing has cancelled its forum without replacement and the forum on LinkedIn is not really alive, we have decided to start our own forum again.

The new forum provides a user-friendly platform where Merlin Project users can network with each other and share knowledge. Ask questions, give suggestions and learn from other experienced users. All of this is free of charge, of course!

The new forum is easy to navigate and offers a variety of features, including a search function that allows you to quickly find the answers to your questions. In addition, you can personalize your profile, track your posts, and connect directly with other users.

We look forward to bringing our community even closer together with this new forum and providing you with more comprehensive support and resources. Feel free to drop by and become part of an ever-growing community!
