improve musicXML import (from sibelius export)
S4 - Minor
I try to import score that was crated from sibelius as musicXML.
I discover that have several format issues:
- chord names aligment are incorrect
- invalid characters on chords names, example: F# -> F(c) on measure 17
- lost chords (ej measure 21, original have A and Asemi, imported have only A+-
- free text with lyrics (end of pages) lost line breaks and formating.
i attach example files:
1) sibelius original file
2) sibelius export as pdf
3) sibelius export as xml
4) musescore imported mscz
5) musescore exported ad pdf

Thanks for the detailed report. Unfortunately, with the possible exception of incorrect chord names alignment, all issues are caused by the Sibelius export.
invalid characters on chords names, example: F# -> F(c) on measure 17: chords have been exported as plain text and are displayed by MuseScore exactly as exported by Sibelius
lost chords (ej measure 21, original have A and Asemi, imported have only A+-: all chords present in the MusicXML file are displayed by MuseScore exactly as exported by Sibelius
free text with lyrics (end of pages) lost line breaks and formatting: Sibelius did not export any formatting
With respect to chord names alignment, this would require further investigation, which I cannot do right now. I do not consider alignment a high priority issue. Note that the chord names alignment can easily be fixed using the inspector.
