Hi Robert,

When did you download and install the plugin? I've been working on it, so it gets updated frequently. The problems you're having with note durations sounds like a bug that was fixed a couple months ago, so if you're running a version that is older than that I would suggest updating to the latest version and seeing if the problem persists.

If it does, I would be interested to see the file that produces the problems.

As for the second one -- it sounds like the software you're using to produce the MusicXML (Sibelius?) is encoding it in such a way that parttime.xsl cannot parse it. As an experiment you might try exporting to MusicXML, loading it into another MusicXML program (Finale or MuseScore) and then exporting again.
