DC al Fine causing problem in playback
I am curious about the effect of a "DC al Fine". I think there is a bug affecting playback
I have just finished working on a string quintet arrangement of Handel's "Water Music". (Score attached). Movement 5 and movement 6 both require a "DC al Fine". However, when I was checking it through, the playback didn't work correctly. On encountering the first "DC al Fine" at the end of Number 5, I was taken back to the beginning of the whole suite, ie Number 1 , not the beginning of Number 5. I stopped the playback and selected the first note of Number 6. Pressing the space bar (for play) did not work - nothing happened. The only way to get the playback to continue was to delete the "DC al fine" mark at the end of Number 5. The playback then continued (either from playing from the last few bars of Number 5 and moving on or playing from the first note of Number 6.)
However, the same problem occurred at the end of Number 6, again necessitating the removal of the "DC al fine" mark, before being able to move on to Number 7.
Admittedly this is a small problem, and for checking purposes can easily be overcome by removing the offending DC markings, but it is annoying. Is this a known bug in multi-movement scores? Is there a cure?
I am using MS 2.0.2 on Windows 8.
Any comments would be gratefully received.
