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!

Merlin Project: Base Costs Report as PDF

Merlin Project Support

We received following question recently:


I’m using the latest version of Merlin Project on a mac and have created a project file where I needed to insert various base costs. I know Merlin Project sums them into planned, expected or actual base costs, but my client requested a detailed Base Costs Report to be printed or read in Preview or Acrobat Reader. The report should list all Base Costs on my project and export their properties. Is this possible?

To meet the requirement described above, you may use an AppleScript solution we developed.
