Playback Repeat / Coda not working as intended

• Jun 26, 2022 - 08:55

I transcribed a lead sheet for the jazz standard "Line for Lyons" (Gerry Mulligan).
(Using MuseScore OS: macOS 10.16, Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit):, revision: 3224f34) on macOS 12.4 (Monterey)

During playback, the first run through the score works fine.

When the repeat sign at the end of measure 26 is hit, playback starts at the beginning ok, but measures 7 to 10 are skipped entirely, with playback resuming at measure 11. (I'd want this part "A" to be played exactly as in the first run)
Continuing from here, I run into the second problem: The "To Coda" instruction is ignored, playback continues playing measures 25, 26, then continues on playing the last line starting from measure 27. (In the repetition I'd expect measures 25, 26 to be skipped, and playback to resume at measure 27, marked by the coda sign)

You have a To Coda and a Coda, both are jump markers but you don't have a jump instruction (D.S. al Coda (which would need a Segno marker) or D.C. al Coda) referring to them: no jump is taking place. Instead you're haveing another end repeat barline, but that doesn't have a corresponsing start repeat barline.
So replace that with a D.C. al Coda and tick its "Play repeats" box in Inspector
