When exporting score as audio, unselecting the "Play Repeats" in the playback controls will create an export with no repeats. However, with midi, unselecting "Play Repeats", repeats are still exported. Exporting midi with or without repeats should follow the same "Play Repeats" behaviour as exporting to audio. Thanks.

Title Bug: Repeats still exported in Midi when "Play Repeats" unselected Option to honor "Play Repeats" in export
Severity S3 - Major S5 - Suggestion

Personally I wouldn't consider this a bug, I see the play repeats button as being just a temporary override for testing purposes. I could, however, see there being an option somewhere to control whether this affects export (not just MIDI but audio), and same for the metronome, solo bottun in Mixer, etc.

A bug in the MP3/WAV export, then :-). I agree they should be consistent, but also, there should be an override.

The override is the "play repeats" button.

The difference might be that MIDI is not really a sound format, more of an interchange format like musicxml, but without the option to transport a repeat, so it either dows not at all and leaves ir to the person importing tonadd repeat barlines, or doubles that section and leavea it to the importing person to detect that and correct the score accordingly.
That won't happen to any of the real sound formats
