MusicXML / Capella score import

• Apr 29, 2020 - 10:53

There are two issues with automatic conversions when importing scores from Capella (version 7); the attached screen shot test01-capella-orig.png shows the correct (intended) version:

a) When importing test01.xml MuseScore converts the 'no-beam' eight notes to 'beamed' notes connected to the three preceeding eight notes.

b) Import of the corresponding score test01.capx (Capella format) shows the same behaviour. In addition, MuseScore changes the e flat notes to d sharp.

Are there options to deactivate these automatic conversions?

At least easily to fix: Import the score, right click on the time signature->time signature properties... and adjust the note groups. For your second request use tools->respell pitches.
