How Can I Exchange Data between Merlin Project and OmniFocus Pro?
The todo application OmniFocus is often used by project managers for the micro management within projects. Therefore, the question of data exchange between the two programs is obvious.
The easiest option is the data transfer via AppleScript. Download this complimentary AppleScript and open it in the macOS ScriptEditor. For further description, see within the AppleScript.
It transfers selected activities into a new project of OmniFocus Pro.
Simply select activities in a work breakdown view and call the script. You may priorly filter your activities on the main view, or select activities in a Details view.
Note: OmniFocus supports AppleScript only in the OmniFocus Pro version. So the script will fail in other case.
