How Can I Exchange Data between Merlin Project and Taskpaper?


The application TaskPaper is often used by project managers for creating lists and getting organized. 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.

It transfers all child activities of your project scheduling to TaskPaper.

Just open the project you want to export as TaskPaper file, and run the script. It creates a TaskPaper file (located on your Desktop folder) which you can open in a second step using TaskPaper.

Note: A big project with lots of activities may take some time to be exported.
