Texts are not readable when imported, I have to set all fonts manually.
Also I feel all texts that are not ASCI II charactors are not readable in all text boxes in Overture5.

I see in the MusicXML file that the two Chinese characters each of in two Credit-words elements (the MusicXML general-purpose page-related text element) are correctly encoded as Unicode in UTF-8 encoding (as declared in the file). One of those elements seem to be for the two characters intended to be centered at the top of the score page (as the "title").

I note that the file specifies the text "font" family as "FreeSerif", a font with extensive Unicode support.

Overture apparently somehow decided that one of these elements is line 2 of the Title text block.

My Windows system has the FreeSerif "font" in place. With this MusicXML file loaded, Overture has its default, Times New Roman, in place for this text item. That "font", at least in the form I have installed here, does not include support for that Unicode block.

If in Overture I assign the FreeSerif "font" to the title line in which the characters of interest appear, they are still not rendered properly (being replaced with the open rectangle used to replace a character that is not available).

The same is true if I assign to that text item other "fonts" having Unicode support for Chinese characters.

Fixed the Chinese text problem in the next release (5.6.2.4).
For the Korean text problem, you may just need to set the font with the new release.

BTW, the MusicXML file was created incorrectly.
Tell the MuseScore people.
The Text for the tempo should be inside the metronome, not separate Credit-Words.

The font should be attributes of the Credit-Words and not a separate credit words.
Some programs may catch this. but some may miss it.
With MusicXML it is better to be specific.
