MusicXml - Lyric sylable output twice

• Jan 16, 2016 - 16:33

There are times when I will use hidden grace notes after a note to have hanging ties (notably with voltas).
I have just come across the occasion when, if I have a syllable under the note, the MusicXml output will reproduce the syllable under it AND under the grace note.

I have the feeling that this is a bug.
Should I open an bug report (with examples obviously) ?

Ok Marc,
Here is an attached example from a real case.
I give simply three bars out of the song to demonstrate.
The first bar is the volta which redirects to the beginning (though I may have omitted to put the D.C. or a repeat bar).

When looking at the exported MusicXml, you can see the repeated lyric syllable in the grace note node (line 190 onwards).

Hope this helps ...
