one thing that has been problematic in my imported scores from MuseScore is the removal of much of the annotations.
Things like solo / tutti instructions, pizz / arco, sul G etc.
Some other annotations were converted into lines.
It appears like the approach taken is Dorico attempts to recognise the meaning of the text, and convert it to a more specialized object type (which may be kinda cool) but if it can’t figure out what the text means, it removes it (not cool).
This requires manual checking of everything after an import to see if you need to re-add it, which is just an additional source for human error.
I think Dorico needs to keep all the annotations it doesn’t understand (like Sibelius does).
By the way, I know these posts are all just complaints, but the reason I’m even sticking this long with Dorico is because it is very exciting and shows an enormous amount of promise which I don’t see in Sibelius. I’ve been a software dev for over 20 yrs now, and it’s clear an enormous amount of effort has gone into Dorico, please don’t think we don’t appreciate this. In my experience, the difficult part of software development isn’t so much figuring out how to do things, as much as deciding what to do.
