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.

Merlin Project: Create Project Handbook as PDF

Merlin Project Support

We received the following question just recently:


I’m using the latest version of Merlin Project on a mac and have created a project file for a client. He has requested a project handbook to be printed or read in Preview or Acrobat Reader. The project handbook should list activities and attachments in a master–detail interface and export a set of predefined properties I am interested in. I don't mind if I need to use a script but I would like the action to do all works in one go; ie. iterate the items, extract the data and create the PDF. Is this possible?

One way to implement the customer's request would certainly be to use the File > Export > Image menu to export customized project views to PDFs or to call File > Print to print your documents.

However, to meet the requirement described above, an AppleScript solution developed by us comes in handy.

Color at Workplace

With my previous blog-article, I shared an insight into my digital tools of daily work.

Today, it's about the hardware that provides these digital tools.
In our everyday life, workstations with their software, their operating systems, are just technical helpers that should work perfectly.

Now a new computer has arrived, an M1 iMac from Apple. The new M1 generation has already raised enough attention technically, I don't have to worry about the performance and the technical features.

More important is the small, underestimated side effect, the color, in my case it is yellow. A sunshine at my workplace. It's just nice to look at this computer.

Visualize Your Strategy For The Year 2021

The Free Roadmap Template for Merlin Project

For each year, a manager should have a strategic plan or a so-called roadmap. In this article, we will set up a sample plan for Merlin Project and highlight both the time and financial aspects. The content of the plan is then up to you. You can also find this project in our template area as a free download.

In the image above, it is immediately noticeable that different formats are set here. Histograms, bars, milestones and boxes are used depending on the task. But let's go through the image from top to bottom.

Lo mejor de los Macs es que las cosas funcionan de forma sencilla, agradable y silenciosa. Realmente no necesita saber mucho sobre sistemas operativos macOS, arquitecturas informáticas, sistemas de archivos, interfaces de aplicaciones o protocolos. Sólo tienes que usar tus aplicaciones y ser creativo. Esto se aplica también a Merlin Project, Merlin Project Express y Merlin Server.

Puedes dejar que Merlin Project por ejemplo publique estructuras de proyectos en el Calendario y sincronizarlas entre varios dispositivos. Se puede ver accediendo a Contactos para los recursos. Puede enviar informes por correo a las partes interesadas del proyecto, compartir el proyecto con Merlin Server y sincronizar las ediciones de otros usuarios en un solo archivo sin problemas. Todo funciona simplemente como un encanto!

Ocasionalmente, sin embargo, un poco de comprensión técnica le será útil.
