Hi guys, I have had a look thru various answers here but still can't quite get it right... Sorry newbie both musecore and music
the song consists of a 4 bar intro
then 3 verses which included a repeated refrain with volta ending.

I cant quite get it to repeat that "verse/refrain1/refrain2" sequence 3 times.
My end repeat bar is not throwing it back to the beginning of the verse

appreciate your help, apologise for my lack of understanding.

Repeat barlines don't nest, unlike in brackets in math.
Closest you can get is using Segno and D.S., in the next major version also with 'take repeats', which then does 2 rounds of verse/refrain1/refrain2, currently it only does verse1/refrain1/refrain2/verse2/refrain2

Your musicians however would understand how to pay a "D.S with repeats" and the 3 verses

Many thx for the reply. That explains why my D.S was not working as I hoped ;)
As I use this mostly for creating midi practice tracks to play against I will certainly be looking fwd to the new version... for now I have simply extended the measures to its lots of sheet music but creates the correct midi playback.

MuseScore prioritizes the notation over the actual playback. They would love to have pristine playback but they want to get the notation perfect before perfecting playback. You can make a separate "listening score" or when you are done properly notating you can take the time to get actual playback using Sound Fonts and "cheat" methods (Ex. rit. -> multiple decreasing tempo markings). Said "cheat" methods take time to learn and "discover", but can be really useful in the long run. Good Luck!
