Default Exporting midi from PT 8 to Sibelius 6

Dunno if this is the right sub-forum to post this, but anyways...
exporting a midi track made in ProTools, a simple melody, 100% quantized, and importing it as Midifile in Sibelius 6 I have the following problems :
- my markers are imported "twice", meaning that if I delete one in Sibelius there's another identical hidden behind the first one, so I have to delete it twice...
- I turn off the tenuto/staccato options. Being the Midi file 100% quantized (shortest notes are 16ths) I could turn off the Adjust Rhythms too, but if I do so Sibelius creates a pure-junk score... so I turn it on setting it at the minimum length of my notes, but despite this something VERY weird happens : two IDENTICAL measures are interpreted in a different way by Sibelius, for example one it shows eight 8ths notes, on the other one it changes one of the 8th notes into one 16th + one 16th rest...
WHY ???

I didn't try the way you do it since Protools version 8; I open the score window in Protools with the midi tracks I need highlighted, right click on the score window ans select "Send to Sibelius" then Sibelius open it immediately.I never had problems doing it that way.

But unfortunately the 'send to sibelius' method does not export markers, or controller data (most notably sustain on piano). I'm currently have to merge both methods in order to get legible scores which is a real PITA. I've not had the problem with duplicate markers though - are you using absolute markers or bar|beat? What frame rate are you using, and what settings for timecode and hit points when you import?
