    Symphony Pro can import and export MusicXML pretty well in my opinion. Some elements may be lost on import, but overall it works well enough for a majority of our users.
  • I just purchased SP5 for iOS a week ago and have been unable to import, let alone open a single XML file to continue working on. I bought SP5 based on the “high acclaim” it received for its ability to import and export XML files, thus allowing me to work on compositions I’m working on in Finale 26. I’d planned to use my iPad for better portability, but now regretting that decision. I’ve followed all of the directions in the manual as well as Forum recommendations and have yet to successfully import. The files show up in “Import File” menu, just won’t open for me to work on. Extremely disappointed doesn’t begin to explain how I feel.

    There were issues in v5 similar to what you described that are resolved in the upcoming v6 update. One suggestion we recommend for the time being is to reimport the XML with a .xml extension, if its extension was .musicxml or something different. If issues persist after making sure of that, we'd appreciate a copy of the affected file sent to [email protected] You may also include the receipt of SP from Apple and a reference to this message if you're interested in the v6 early access.
