musicxml issues

• Jun 30, 2022 - 17:49

Hey all,
I am having trouble with this file loosing some formatting when I export it to musicxml and then open it again, and especially when it gets uploaded to where it needs to go. I am asking it to keep all formatting, so I am not really sure where the issue is?
Thank you for your help!

MusicXML is not really capable of keeping all formatting. Well, in theory it's possible some program might be able to implement in a way where more is preserved than MuseScore does currently, but in general, it's just not reasonable to expect a format designed for maximum portability to also capture every single nuance of the appearance of the original. It's a way to get a good starting point for further editing when moving between programs, but not a way to present music in a very specific visual format . For that, PDF is better.
