Dorico 1.1 now supports chord symbols. But when I take a MusicXML file with chord symbols in it, and import it into Dorico 1.1, it fails to import the chord symbols altogether. They are lost.
Am I missing anything here?
Does Steinberg plan to add MusicXML chord symbol parsing support to Dorico in future?
Otherwise how am I going to get my hundreds of jazz lead sheets created in Sibelius format output as MusicXML and imported and converted into Dorico format?
Furthermore, jazz lead sheets need to have 4 measures/bars to each system, every system, except when certain circumstances cause the engraver to over-ride this rule. Yet Dorico ignores the number of measures/bars in each system when it imports MusicXML, and re-flows the measures/bars according to its own engraving spacing, which would be fine for most music but is emphatically wrong for jazz lead sheets. Unless there is a workaround for which I’m unfamiliar, I’m going to have to go through all my jazz lead sheets once brought into Dorico (with all the chord symbols stripped out and discarded) and manually add system breaks all through each lead sheet to restore the standard of 4 measures/bars per system. That’s going to be a great deal of extra work.
