Transferring Sibelius files to MS
I am taking my old Sib files, making XML files out of them, and opening/editing/saving them in MuseScore. I'm getting some strange artifacts though.
One is that Sib sends its page numbers to XML as text, which is interpreted by MS as text, so I get two page numbers, one superimposed over the other. This was an easily solved problem; just delete the border of the text area and all disappears. Perfect.
However, both the Tempo and the Rehearsal Marks appear below the first stave in the score on a regular basis. I can go into Inspector and move them up again, but I don't know exactly where they're supposed to be, so I'm just eyeballing it. Is there a simple function that can take those objects that aren't where they're supposed to be and move them where they ARE supposed to be? Or is there something that's even easier than what I am doing?
Final question: does MS care one way or the other whether the file is .xml or .musicxml? If so, which is better and why?
