Request: start playing in the second or third round of a repeat
I often want to check the last part of a score. Then I want to start in the second round of a repeat followed by the end. In the image below that's the part with the pinkish background.
I'd like to to suggest a feature for this.
When playing a score and when I'm not in a repeat area, the play button looks what we're used to:
While playing, and when MuseScore plays into a repeat area, the icon of the play button changes to show the repeat I'm in:
If I pause, or if I get into a repeat area by clicking there, I get an arrow-down next to the play button. When I click it, I get a pulldown to choose the first repeat, second repeat, etc. Once I clicked in the dropdown and clicked "Play", the music should play as if I had gotten there the way I normally do. I hope that that also solves any "to Coda". The dropdown only appears when I'm in a repeat area. The dropdown is longer or shorter depending upon the number of repeats:
If this solution wouldn't be possible, let me know. I appreciate reactions. If needed, maybe I can come up with alternative ideas.
I had asked if there was already such a function:
SteveBlower pointed out that there's a "Unroll Repeats" in the Tools menu, but I find it hard to tell where i'm in in the score when using that option.
This request is related to another topic:
When pausing and resuming in the second round of a repeat, MuseScore goes back to the first round.
