Finale-XML import tips

I thought it might be helpful to share some of our experiences importing XML from Finale: specifically, problems that we’ve encountered, and how to fix them.

The biggest issue for me seems to be rehearsal marks. I’ve noticed especially that custom rehearsal marks (like “Outro” or “Tag”) don’t import correctly. It almost always seems to be resolved by either deleting the rehearsal mark, or by switching off the toggle for “Index” in the Properties Panel.

I also find Dorico always adds explicit clefs at the beginning of the flow. I don’t always need to select and delete them, but I do anyways.

Anyone else want to share some tips for cleaning up Finale-XML imports?
