(quite a few) questions re repeats
hi, I'm fairly new to Musescore, but like it a lot.
I'm using Musescore 126.96.36.19943 on a Mac (10.13.6) and have a couple questions regarding repeats.
Can simple repeats nest? (E.g. [1,2,3,[4,5],6,7,8] would play 1,2,3,4,5,4,5,6,7,8 twice.)
In my particular case I want:
- to repeat measures 14 and 15 3 times (btw, I got the playback to do this, but can I associate text with this, e.g. "3x", to appear above the treble cleff of my grand staff?)
- measure 16 is plain
- measure 17 should be in volta 1 with a repeat to the beginning of the piece (can I leave this repeat off as is sometimes done in printed music, implying "repeat to beginning"?)
- measure 18 should be in volta 2,3, leading into a section that also has some internal repeats and ends with a repeat to the beginning of the piece the 2nd time only.
Is this structure possible? Or do I need to use D.C. al Coda tricks?
As I entered the piece I forgot to put the repeat begin at measure 1 (corresponding to the repeat in volta 1). Is it OK to enter this later? Is there a way to see (or change) which begin-repeat corresponds to a given end-repeat?
Finally, can anyone explain why my playback jumps from the end of measure 16 (before volta 1) to the beginning of measure 19 (after volta 2,3)?
Sorry to ask so many questions at once. I'd be happy to resubmit them in smaller pieces if that would help. (They're related and focused on my current conundrum, which is why I'm posting them together.)
I'll be grateful for any help,
