Fixing q Signpost Errors from XML Import

Hi @mbwolk and welcome to the Forum. As you can see from this guidelines is always better to post a Dorico Project that contains an example of the issue, with a detailed description. In your post you speak also about bar 29, that is not visible in your screenshot. In this case maybe you can share also the original xml for someone to experiment.

I suggest that the q is not an “error”, it means quarter note value. And those signposts are not “errors” but are hidden meter changes, that Dorico writes in the process of translating/visualize the original xml.

You can find many preferences for XML import (in Preferences/MusicXML Import) that can be deactivated to let Dorico interpret the xml translation using his own algorithms instead of trying to reproduce the original (with the eventual “mistakes” contained in it). (Deactivating most of this preferences brings often better results.)
