Title Didn't show chord symbals when open XML file Didn't show chord symbols when open XML file
Status won't fix needs info

What is the workaround?
Please provide the XML file

You are aware that a status "won't fix" basically close the issue?

Anyway: issue with 4.x pre-releases should rather get reported on GitHub anyhow

My assumption is that the default chord symbol description file isn't being loaded for MusicXML imports. That would explain what we see, and why editing the chord or save/reload fixes it (which it does). So, another workaround: go to Format / Style / Chord Symbols, change from standard to jazz and back (or vice versa).
