Getting double lyrics and double chort symbols upon import from .XML

• Jan 19, 2023 - 05:00

Let me preface this post by saying I am a relative newbie to MuseScore so I apologize in advance if I ask an uninformed question. I am running MuseScore on an older Mac.
I just imported an .XML file into MuseScore form a project I am working on in Digital Performer. I only imported three tracks. A bass, a lead line with lyrics and an extremely simple keyboard part. It is a pop song. So ...

First, when I open it up, I am getting double lyrics. One above the lead line and one below. (In DP, I had the lyrics below.) They seem to be laid out okay and are following the melody as they should. I want to get rid of one of the lines - not sure why there are two. I went back to DP and exported it one more time to make sure it was only a single melody with a single lyric attached. No change.

Second, I am getting two sets of chord symbols. Both are above the keyboard which is laid out on a grand staff. One on top of another. These are the simplest of chords, C G F and Amin. I only need one set, not two.

Any ideas n how to clean this up?
Oh, not sure what I should upload below, just going to include a screenshot for the moment.
