Hi, a newbie here.
Searched through the forum, but couldn't find an answer to this issue, although I've seen some reports by other users.
I want to export GM drums from SO4 to Notion with the export function, which, obviously, doesn't work correctly. Exported GM drums look like a mess and don't align to proper values on staff. Is this a known issue, which is supposed to be fixed soon? Or maybe there is a simple workaround to make Notion import GM drums correctly?

It's difficult to give an answer to your problem, really. I'm struggling with midi drum import myself, not with SO though (Logic, Cubase). Sometimes it works great, sometimes the result is a real mess. An obvious task is to check whether or not your drum part in SO is set on the proper channel, that is channel 10, as a forum member once pointed out. Open the file in Notion and choose convert to notation in the tool menu. Then hold command T (on mac) and allocate drum kit. If not on channel 10, Notion will understand your drum part is not a drum part, but rather a piano part or any other instrument and you'll end up with a treble and bass clef staves, with ledger lines and notes placed not where they're supposed to be...

Checking this channel 10 issue was a time saver for me BUT I must say it doesn't work all the time, and I can't figure out why.

You'll find many discussions about midi drum import to Notion in the forum. Things are improving a lot, but it is difficult to know why you just don't get the same results all the time. And there is no drum mapping in Notion. It is a futur feature request, but I guess it'll take time before it is implemented in next Notion releases.
