MusicXML took “measure 0” from MuseData, where it has always worked well.  It is important for syntax-checking at the ends of movements (or sections of movements in binary form).

Subject: [MEI-L] Anacrusis measures

Dear colleagues,

while encoding pickup measures I’ve found that the Sibelius to MEI plugin does not use any kind of notation for them, however I’ve found some examples among the samples in github (https://github.com/music-encoding/music-encoding/tree/MEI_dev/samples/MEI2013/), e.g. Opera.mei, that encode it using:

<measure n="0" xml:id="m0" type=“upbeat">

How should I encode anacrusis measures=

Thank you in advance,
