I have a bunch of symphonic XML files exported from Finale 26 which produces a few typical symptoms when imported into Dorico:
- certain instruments are rendered without bar rests.
- certain instruments are rendered without bar rests, but only from a certain point in the score for no obvious reason
- from a certain point in the score the notes are NOT rendered (all staves), but all dynamics are
The files have been thoroughly checked for errors and inconsistencies in Finale before export, and they import without these errors into Sibelius and Musescore (and back into F.) Re-exporting from Sibelius does not help, Dorico still produces the same errors as if the file came directly from F.
Has anyone experienced these problems and narrowed down on a reason why they happen? I’m rather eager to get to the bottom of it, as a successfull import into Dorico will probably save me some 200 hours of manual layout work…
