strange musicxml import

Hello all, I was able to import very complex nested tuplet rhythms with version 1.0.30, however with 1.1 I’m struggling to work out why a simple 1/8th note is displayed without a tail. I’ve reduced a more complex xml file to the very simple one pasted below. The problem is in the first bar. The final F5 should be an 1/8th. Even more strange is that after importing, then exporting and reimporting Dorico’s XML, the same problem occurs. Hmm. Musescore isn’t having this problem, I should add. Any thoughts? Best, Michael

I think the eighth note is imported correctly – see the attached picture. Could it be a font problem instead? Do eighth notes appear properly in other projects?

I think you’re right Daniel, thanks. I followed your train of thought and changed the Notes Engraving option to Default Flags (I had Straight Flags as default). Now all is well. Will I have to wait until the next release to get fonts for Straight Flags again, as with the tuplet font problem I hit some days ago? Best, Michael

Straight flags work OK for me, Michael, so that’s a bit peculiar. Do straight flags also fail to draw in a brand new project you create? What version number shows for Bravura and Bravura Text if you examine them in Font Book (Mac) or in the Windows Fonts folder?

Just tried a new project Daniel, and yes, Straight Flags fail to draw. Bravura and Bravura Text are both Version 1.216. Best, Michael

OK, thanks, Michael, I will look into this further and see if I can work out why they work for me and not for you.
