See this song online. The repeats (ending at bar 12 and 17) are taken correctly the first time the song plays. After the jump "D.S al coda", the repeats are played only once and the second volta is taken.

Expected behavior: Repeats should be repeated after the D.S. jump.

The same behavior can be observed on Mac Musescore 2.0.2


According to notation convention, repeats are not taken after DC or DS.

If you are writing for other musicians you will have to write an instruction in text. If you are doing it for MIDI playback, you will need to write it out.

This is by design.
