How does Dorico exactly deal with XML imported instruments from Finale?
For example after an XML import from Finale, Dorico uses (correctly) the exact instrument names from the Finale file.
Let say Violinen 1, Violinen 2, Violoncello and Kontrabass.
These are also the instrument names shown in the “Edit Instrument Names” window from the setup mode and these are the names shown in the field “Editing instrument”.
When I choose the engraving option for “Brackets and Braces” Orchestral I then expect Dorico to create brackets accordingly.
But in this case Dorico does not do it.
Only when I manually “change” the instruments in Setup mode to the appropriate instruments (meaning the same instruments but from within Dorico), Dorico then automatically add the brackets.
I also notice that the octave of the Kontrabass is not right.
Also here only after manually changing the Kontrabass to the appropriate instrument Dorico automatically shows the right octave.
It seems to me that the imported instruments and instrument names have no properties in Dorico and they are only place holder without any signification.
Is it so?
And if yes, why if the imported names correspond to Doricos used names?
