While I'm transcribing The Rite Of Spring, there's a fermata at the barline in Sacrificial Dance, which is not exported. Fortunately, I have a braille score of another edition on hand to compare, otherwise my transcription will be inaccurate. The attached file shows this kind of fermata at the end of bar 1, which can't be exported at all.

Thank you for telling me how to do this. I just thought the Epic topic is related, so I used the Epic type. Also, I think the bug will always happen, so I chose many.

Solution is to export such things not belonging to any voice as an isolate object in Musicxml right before the close of "measure" or before "backup" of the second voice. In MNX, this should be put in "global" sequence when we implement it.

Like many MusicXML import/export issues, this has simply never been implemented. MusicXML explicitly supports fermatas on barlines: a barline can have a child fermata. Implementation note: MuseScore stores the fermata in the barline segment's annotations.

So I'm always the one who discover things not implemented, so that Musescore an be the software with best Musicxml export :-)
