Difference between CODA symbol and "To CODA"
OK, so I have been exploring how to use repeats and jumps. I watched some video clips about it, and all the clips explain the following the same way. Here is a screenshot (and MuseScore file is attached}
I want to play measures 1 - 8. THEN, I want to jump back to measure 2, repeat to the "CODA symbol" above Measure 5, and when the song reaches it, jump to the 2nd CODA symbol at measure 9. ALL the clips I saw and read about, state that I can use a CODA symbol for the 1st CODA point, then jump to the 2nd CODA symbol. Unfortunately, the MuseScore player does not do that. It jumps OK from the DS al CODA note on measure 8, goes back to measure 2, but when it hits the 1st CODA symbol, it ignores it and plays right through to measures 5, 6, etc. Try it and see.
If however, I use the term, "To CODA" for the 1st CODA symbol, everything works as I want it. Here is a screenshot of it (and the actual file attached):
It appears that the MuseScore mixer ignores the 1st CODA point if it is a symbol, but acts on it if it is "To CODA". Is that correct? If so, why? The explanations I read claim symbols can be used for both CODA marks. If not, and I did something wrong, what did I do wrong?
Thanks as always in advance.
