Playback for Volta with "1., 3." not working in MuseScore 4

• Apr 2, 2023 - 04:36

If I set up a single Volta for endings 1 and 3 (let's call it Volta1+3), I cannot get playback to move from the 3rd ending to Volta 4 properly. (Note that the 2nd ending has a D.S.)

I have played extensively with "Repeat List" and also the repeat measure's "Play count" for both
Volta 4

Attached is an 8-bar example, admittedly complex. I'd like to know how to have this play back correctly (or get it fixed if it's a bug).

The second end repeat barline line should be in measure 5 not in 6.
I'm afraid you won't achieve your goal with the D.S. in the 2nd ending. Why don't you do without D.S. and add an extra measure with the content of measure 2 again after the 2nd ending?
Attached an example with MuS 3.6.2.

Thanks HildeK: thank you for the response! My Musescore 4.0.1 converted it.

Unfortunately, I actually do want the D.S. in measure 5 to go back to measure measure 2. Then at the end of measure 6 I'd like to repeat to measure 3 - perhaps there's a different way I should be representing that?

The example is admittedly a bit ridiculous, sorry. It's a simplification from a longer score I'm working on, where I'm trying to avoid some page turns.

Thanks again for looking at this.
