Tied notes from first ending back to the repeat sign

• Jan 3, 2020 - 02:22

I think I have seen this discussed, but just don't know or remember the solution. How does one tie a note from a repeat sign...like at the end of a "first ending"....back to the beginning of that section... Notes seem to tie easily if they are in the next bar/measure... but I need to indicate the note is tied back to the same note at the beginning of that section.... it won't document an "open tie"... or whatever one would call it...

I still am unable to understand how to tie FROM the first ending to the beginning of the repeated section. If I add hidden notes in the 2nd ending I am unable to hide the ties in that 2nd ending if it is at the beginning of a stave.

Can someone please guide me?

THanks, but that does not answer my need.

What I want to do is have ties going from that last bar of ending 1 so that they will tie to the first bar of the repeated section.
If I add hidden notes in a bar after the first ending, I cannot hide the ties in the latter bar and still keep them in the 1st ending.

Attached is a pic of the last bar - I want to add ties FROM the chord.

Thanks Franz. I found grace note after. That works for the top note of the chord.

However the other notes do not tie to the grace notes. Perhaps Jm6stringer can help?

I want to have the ties extend out of the last bar of the first ending...

The last bar of the first ending?
Looks to me like the first ending (1st volta) is comprised of a single bar. It's the one and only bar in that first ending.

That said, the treble clef of measure 33 shows a G as the top note of the chord. Add a grace note after to that note. It will appear to tie to the G whole note at the start repeat.

Attach an example here? Even a few lines and, given my difficulty, Ctrl+T to insert "From this note to this and this".
If what matters is visualization... grace notes (before and after), Inspector->stemless, small and silent. Then you can move them around and, with a double click, adjust them.
Jm6stringer or one of the contributors more equipped than me and I believe this is called bump if it brings the discussion back to the top of the comments)
