We’ve posted an Evernote > Merlin applescript in the past. It allows you to select notes in Evernote and import them to Merlin as file attachments to be able to view them offline and have them as part of your Merlin project.
This script is for those of you who want to transfer activities from Merlin to Evernote and create notes from an existing Merlin project. It goes throughout all activities of the top most opened project, checks if they already been synced to Evernote, if not it creates a note in related Evernote notebook, and writes there the content of the notes, names the note as the Merlin task, set expected end date of the task as creation date for the note (so one can check for it) and writes into Merlin project in the ‘additional title’ column the id of the note in Evernote in order for the script to be able to identify duplicates by re-transfers.
We don’t see how we can overwrite existing note content by applescript, so we tell the script to report existing notes and not to change them.
Feel free to download this Merlin to Evernote applescript and modify the sample as you find fitting your workflow needs at best.

We have posted information for transferring activities from Merlin to Things and todos from Things to Merlin. Mentioned approaches require both applications (Merlin and Things) to be installed on the same mac.
But… how to proceed if you want to transfer your data to another Mac where you may have installed Merlin, or when wanting to forward to a PM using Merlin? By a similar approach.
Just use another AppleScript we specifically wrote, which reads the selected todos from Things and writes in a Merlin XML file, which you can open in Merlin by drag&drop. For an easy file transfer, the script creates an email message and attaches the Merlin file. Cool, isn’t?
