The attached has 3 l.v. symbols, which can't be exported. I edited the Musicxml to show how to do this.

Also this one doesn't export. It's another kind of let-ring, notated as a laissez vibrer ticulation. Both should be supported, to prevent using a tie without ending note, which is not standard.

With the help of my mother, I just found the line version of "let ring" should be exported as a "let ring" text with an additional dash line spanning through the duration. These two are different, but should all be exported as appropriate formats.

So the line type of "let ring" is solved,. More commonly used laissez vibrer articulation or symbol should also be supported, exported as a let-ring tie.

MuseScore's "laissez vibrer" articulation is, unfortunately, not quite the same as MusicXML's "let-ring". In MuseScore it is a chord attribute, in MusicXML it is a note attribute. This means a completely correct transcription from MuseScore to MusicXML and vice versa cannot be made for chords. An approximation could be to export "let-ring" for all notes in a chord with "laissez vibrer" and to import "laissez vibrer" if any note in a chord has "let-ring".

The approximation seems to be a good way so far. As long as it can be exported and correctly brailled, this is a best solution we can find currently.
