Now let’s do some magic with the reports.
Format dates in ‘Information report’, ‘Next Due Activities’ and ‘Review Report’ as dd/mm/yyy
Above report templates are XSLT based reports. This technology does not allow them to ask the date format on your Mac, so dates are hard coded as (mm/dd/yyyy) which is correct if you are US based.
If you however want to format dates as dd/mm/yyy you would need to edit all those report.xslt files and modify the dateformatter from “‘[M01]/[D01]/[Y]‘” …
To make a long story short, we’ve created a new set of those three reports and post it hereafter.

We’ve had some support mails from time to time reporting us that the downloadable Merlin2.zip extracts on their Macs a broken Merlin.app, which either fails to start or does not create new empty projects.
After searching and searching, we finally managed to nail this down to two possible reasons:
1. Mac users not utilizing the standard Apple’s ‘Archive Utility’ for expanding the zip archive.
One user for example named ‘WinAchiver’. In case you had the same issue, please ctrl (or right) click your Merlin2.zip and select Open With > Archive Utility explicitly.
2. Mac users of download manager apps.
One user for example named ‘Folx’. If having a poor connection to the internet and use download manager apps to quicken the download or resume interrupted downloads, please make sure the downloaded zip is really completed.
Compare its size with the size shown on the update page. If your zip is much too small, try downloading with Firefox, Chrome or even Safari instead, or use following alternative link:
Help us get the big picture:
If this worked for you, please leave us a note and name the expander or download manager app you were using.
