Import from Sibelius not Showing System Brackets?
I just exported a large score from Sibelius that has many system brackets but they don't show in MuseScore.
Is it possible they're just hidden and I need to discover how to un-hide them?
Can someone please advise?

Also, a screenshot of how they look in Sibelius.

I'm no expert, but I don't see any instruction in that MusicXML file saying to add staff brackets. That version of Sibelius is pretty old, probably they hadn't gotten around to implementing that in the export yet.

I think you can put it in a zip file. Also the musicxml. My version 7 will export as compressed or uncompressed xml. MuseScore will only open one of them.

If you still have PhotoScore Lite, you might try saving you file as a PDF. Have photoscore read it and see if it will save as a music xml.
