Proper positioning of direction element

Hi Michael, I am seeing some unexplained behavior in Finale's current interpretation of some MusicXML that is being generated from Sibelius 7.5.0 using the direct export feature of Sibelius. In the MusicXML code below, you will note that a wedge element is defined, and both its start and end element...

Grace notes after a note

Hi Michael, Occasionally a score will call for one or more grace notes AFTER a note, rather than before. If this occurs in the middle of a measure, how can someone distinguish whether the grace notes belong to the note before them or the note after them? If the grace notes come after the last note i...

beam color

Hi Michael, Each note in a beamed group has its own beam color in the beam element of that note. Is the intent of this to color just the portion of the overall beam that can be ascribed to the note in question, or is the idea for all notes on a beam at the same level to (hopefully) have the same bea...

number-level clarification

Hi Michael, I note that a number of elements that contain a number-level list it as: <xs:attribute name="number" type="number-level" default="1"/> while others list it as: <xs:attribute name="number" type="number-level"/> The XSD documentation for nu...

Re: MusicXML Import hangs Finale

Hi Frank, Thanks so much for your close inspection of this. I am guessing that there must be at least several versions of some of the LilyPond test suite files. The file "33a-Spanners.xml" also shows the same type of tremolo element. Regardless, the construct: <tremolo/> is in fact illegal...

wavy-line documentation clarification

Hi Michael, The documentation in the XSD for wavy-line states in part that: "When used with a measure element, they should always have type="continue" set" The wavy-line is used with either a barline or ornaments element, not with a measure element. Did you mean instead: "Wh...

Clarification of Bracket line-type

Hi Michael, Is it the intent of MXML that any ends or arrows that are part of a bracket element should be drawn with the same line-type that the bracket element has? In other words, if a bracket has a line-type of dashed or wavy, did you intend that and ends or arrows on the bracket also be drawn wi...

Clarification of Bracket end-length

Hi Michael, If a bracket element has a line-end of type "both", does the end-length attribute refer to each of the "up" portion of the bracket end and the "down" portion of the bracket end, or does it refer to the total length of the up and down portions, treating both ...

MusicXML Import hangs Finale

Hi Michael, If you try to import the attached MusicXML file (from the LilyPond test suite) into Finale 2014 (c or d), Finale will hang after displaying an empty document full of whole note rests. The MusicXML file is the same one included in the LilyPond test suite, with the addition of the followin...

falloff documentation error

Hi Michael, The falloff articulation is incorrectly documented at http://www.finalemusic.com/UserManuals/MusicXML/Content/EL-MusicXML-falloff.htm and elsewhere as: "The falloff element appears before the main note and goes below the main pitch." The example graphic accompanying it online i...
