Music XML noteheads

Hello, I’m algorithmically generating Music XML code with This includes things like text marks for fingerings and string numbers, as well as notehead shapes (like X or triangle-up head). Finale and Sibelius import these things just fine but Dorico seems to ignore them. However, Dorico looks so much better, IMO, especially with auto-beautiful layout and secondary-beam breaks, so I’m prepared to re-enter noteheads etc. by hand.

Just wondering if I missed something though, and there’s perhaps a way to get these things imported, or if there are plans to make this happen in an imminently available update?

Best, Michael

Different notehead designs are not currently imported from MusicXML files, but we do plan to improve this in future. I can’t say for sure when that will be, however.
