FLow direction question
I have a song with 3 verses and a refrain. I want it to play V1, V2, R, V3, R. The attached file plays V1, V2, R, V3, R, V3. Can someone please explain why V3 plays again. After V1, V2, R the final repeat returns to the beginning (Section Repeat Open), the third ending is taken as expected. When it gets to the final repeat the second time, why doesn't it stop? Do I need to use a DC or DS? The way I have it sems more intuitive.

Edit. changed attachment. Actually plays as I said, except thet the second V3 stops before either ending.

Sorry, I edited this while you were replying. A few questions: Why does the DC in your file not honor the repeat the second time? And what if you actually wanted it to play AABAAB. But really, why does mine take the final repeat a second time. I suppose it stops short becaues there is no fourth ending.

These instructions are all considered to be Da capo, or D.C., instructions. When encountered, playback will be redirected back to the beginning of the song. After this instruction, all master repeats will be ignored

what if you actually wanted it to play AABAAB

Beats me. I do not recommend an Ending Bar of anything other than 'Open(hidden)' in General Staff Properties

That would be because the ending barline (the MRC) is still part of the 3rd ending.

Try pasting this as the last object:

This also works for AABAAB. You may find it a bit more logical.

Thanks to all. I think I understand. And thanks Lawrie, I never would have thought of the hidden second special ending (2.) within ending (2.3.).
