I am writing a program that generates MusicXML files for import into Finale and have run into a problem with the Dolet MusicXML import plugin. The following exercise demonstrates the problem.
When exporting to a MusicXML file and the score has chord names, and a chord is a major chord with only the root name notated above the staff, the Dolet plugin properly writes the markup thusly
 
<harmony>
  <root>
    <root-step>F</root-step>
  </root>
  <kind>major</kind>
</harmony>
 
Observe the <kind> tag, which identifies the chord as a major chord. The <kind> tag is required and it must have one of the valid values.
 
When importing from the same MusicXML file, the Dolet plugin notates the chord name as "F Maj" rather than simply "F" as in the original score.
 
This notation clutters the score with lots of unnecessary "Maj" entries. Does anyone know a way to suppress this notation?

Hi Al,
 
This should work the way you want in version 1.3 of the full Dolet for Finale plug-in. New features and bug fixes in the various versions of Dolet are listed at:

Thanks, Michael. Is there an upgrade procedure? I do not find one on the website. Or must I purchase the plugin again?

Hmm. Very strange. I realized that I have been running the Dolet Light version of the MusicXML plugin that comes with Finale 2004. I downloaded and installed the evaluation version of the full product. Now, when I run Finale, it tells me that "Your trial period for Dolet for Finale has expired..." I thought I got 30 days, not 30 seconds.

Hi Al,

It sounds like you may have downloaded and used the full version of the plug-in sometime in the past. You only get 30 days per machine, not 30 days per download.

Maintenance updates for Dolet version 1 are free - you just download and install.

I don't remember doing that, but it's possible. CRS.
