repeat measure sign does not repeat

• Jul 25, 2011 - 15:52

I use the "repeat measure sign" (the one that looks like a %). Unfortunately, it does not produce any sound, that is, it does not repeat the last measure. Is that the way it should be or am I doing something wrong? Signs like DC and ||: :|| does what they are supposed to do; It would be nice if the % sign really played the last measure.


In reply to by Filipe de Mora…

Not that I know of. But there are some thing you could do that might help. For instance, make the notes "small", and decrease stretch as much as possible. Worst case is you put the notes ina separate staff that is used just for playback but deleted for printing - that is, have separate play and print versions of the score.

I think that having that having measure repeats playback is in the list for 2.0, but I'm not sure about that.

I'm placing the keyword simile in this comment so the next person who is, as I was, searching for the word simile (the common name for this sign) will find this thread in a search
