Some problems with repeats and voltas in anticipation of relese 3.5.1
Using version 188.8.131.5299 Win 10.
First of all, let me congratulate you all on your excellent work. MS is better and better every day!
I know there are several bug reports about repeats and voltas. A few are slated to be addressed in 3.5.1. I created a file with a very streamlined variety of "test cases" with DS, DC repeats coupled with voltas. Nothing too fancy, pretty much voltas contained within DS, or DC. no "strange" jumps.
Most work with 3.5.0 with the suggested additions of section breaks on the DS, etc. They could be used as a fast check on changes (some kind of oracle).
The cases are named, and following each one, there is a text frame with detailed descriptions, so you don't have to be jumping from this post to the score. :-)
In these cases, I also created my own "types" of segnos, codas, jumps etc. I modified the names and the tags and they seem to work correctly.
Now, TEST CASES 6 and 12 DON'T WORK, and in a very strange way. There seems to be "interference" between cases (or perhaps sections)! The case starts and then it jumps to a differente case (specifically, to case 5, as explained in detail in the text frames after each test case. I added an isolated file with the same elements of case 6 and it runs perfectly.
It is possible that although I reviewed it, there are obvious mistakes on these 2 cases. Particularly I noticed that if you inadvertently click twice when placing a volta, you end up with 2 voltas, perfectly superimposed! You change one, (repeat list, text etc) and the other one is still there! I think I cleared those cases. Shouldn't there be a warning by the program that prevents that, because it is very hard to find?
If something like that is not what's wrong with these 2 cases, and it is some kind of interference with the tags, then I think a clearer explanation of the range or scope of "sections" and marker "tags" would help users a lot.
Also, when creating or modifying jumps, markers and tags, are there limitations?
Are Segno and Segno Variation used as automatic shortcuts to provide segno and varsegno tags, or could you add your own tags with these types.
Same for Coda, Varied Coda and Codetta? To Coda is pretty clear, but Custom is not.
Can you use a "custom" marker as a "segno", "tocoda" or "coda"? I did in my test case 7 and it seems to work. Maybe that's what broke test case 6 :-) !
In any case, I hope this file is useful to check the behavior with very small pieces.
Again, my sincere congratulations for the effort all of you have done to create a friendly and useful program and for the courteous (and patient!) responses, even when the posters sometimes are not that friendly or patient :-).
