DS al coda jumps to the beginning instead of segno

• Oct 16, 2021 - 14:06

What it says in the title, I added a simple DS al coda, but jumps to the beginning instead of the sign. I reentered the jump signs in several orders, since that apparently seems to make a difference, but it doesn't matter, nor does it matter whether play repeats is turned on or not. What do I do wrong?


I don't know what caused the problem, but I inserted a brand new measure in place of measure 60 (the one with the D.S. al Coda).
See if this works for you:
Also, the 'To Coda' was out of position. (Ctrl+R reset its position.)

At some point you've added a D.C. al Coda and instead of removing the marker entirely erased the text in it instead, which is why you have trouble seeing/selecting it (it's an empty text, so it takes up no space).

          <style>Repeat Text Right</style>
          <style>Repeat Text Right</style>
          <text>D.S. al Coda</text>

The way to fix this is to click on the D.S. al Coda and then press Alt+← (I'm assuming Option+← on a Mac). You'll notice the highlight from the D.S. is gone, but the status bar still shows a Jump selected ("Da Capo al Coda" this time).
Now press "Del" to remove the marking.
