Exporting to Merlin 2 FROM Omnifocus
 
An illustrative draft of an applescript which exports the projects selected in Omnifocus to Merlin 2, with their tasks and subtasks.

(Note that any visible children of selected parents are exported, so there is no need to select children as well as parents).

This draft exports only activity names and notes (as Merlin 2 activity descriptions). It can easily be adapted to make use of OF start dates etc.

[CODE]-- Illustrative draft Ver 0.0

-- Copies anything selected in Omnifocus (Project or Context View) into MERLIN 2
-- Note that the whole sub-tree is copied, so only 'parent' elements need to be selected.
-- The destination is a new Merlin 2 document.

Hello RobTrew,
Thank you for your great script to export to Omnifocus from Merlin Works great!.

im actually havin problem using the actulal one from Omnifocus to Merlin, i've added the scritp to the omnifocus folder and doesn't work and don't appear in the toolbar customisation menu.
Any cue to help me catch what i'm missing?

The first port of call is this:

also worth checking whether you can run if from Applescript Editor.
