I created a four-voice, grand staff score with an ossia staff in several places, then deleted all the ossia notes and all the ossia staffs. When I send my file via MXL to Musescore, there’s an extra voice, all rests. How can I eliminate that extra voice?
Here’s an example Dorico file. Export to MXL and notice the extra voice (a rest) in the upper staff.

For the time being there’s no way to prevent an ossia staff from being exported in MusicXML. Your best bet would be to create a new piano instrument held by a new player, copy and paste the music from the two visible staves to the new piano, then remove the old one, and re-export.
That worked beautifully, thank you!
I was using ossia to remind myself of musical options, then didn’t need them later. Ossia must be “latched on” somehow.
