Imported XML chord symbol signposts

I got a perfect XML lead sheet from an old Finale export. It has green signposts denoting chord symbols. Is there a slick way to convert those into Dorico chord symbols?

In setup mode, right-click the player for whom you want to show chord symbols, then go Chord Symbols > Show for all instruments. It should be that simple.

Or actually, if it’s a lead sheet it might be even quicker to go to Layout Options and set the option for Chord Symbols to show above the top stave on each system.

Or you could just input a chord symbol (anywhere where there isn’t already one), which should prompt the chord symbols to show throughout, then delete that manually-entered chord symbol.
