Merlin Project has many useful features. One of these is publishing. This is the ability to publish files automatically or on demand in a particular file format such as calendar, HTML, image (e.g, PDF, JPG, etc), mind map, MS Project, and more. 

Publishing files to HTML is a great way to share specific project views (read only) with colleagues or clients who might not have Merlin Project. This will work with PC, Mac, or other OS users as long as they have a browser. You could publish to an FTP server if you have one or save it to dropbox or a file share on your local network for colleagues.

HTML publishing is just one example that we've illustrated, but it will show you the basics of publishing which you can explore to find other publishing options. One way we use publishing is to have an automatic backup to an XML file in case we need to transfer the main data to another program, such as back to Merlin 2 as we did when we were testing Merlin Project. 

If you've used Merlin 2, be sure to check out the expanded publishing capabilities in Merlin Project including more file formats, methods, views and autosave options.
