Agreed. I thought I had eliminated XML but cannot reproduce. It saves to PDF fine from .mscx which, I see now, is text and can be consulted like I was initially using XML for.

Next release (0.9.6) will be improved but not perfect. I tested the current revision (2904) and found the octave shift is handled correctly. The position of the 15ma line, however, is not exported to MusicXML. On import the line is placed at a default y position, which in this case is not quite correct.

Exporting and importing exact positioning of directions should probably not be a last minute change to 0.9.6, but should be implemented during development of a later release. We should focus on showstopper bugs only at this time.
