How do you highlight this text in MS Project?
You can exchange data between the two apps (Merlin Project and MS Project). You cannot count on import of formatting information.
When exporting from Merlin Project to MS Project, you export the data. Not their formatting. That's important to know. If you need just an mpp-Files Editor, you won’t be happy with Merlin Project.
If you want to forward the layouted Merlin Project view, you may export an HTML or a PDF file.
