end on steff
I want the staff to end with a master repeat close  but it enter the repeat and then closes with a standard close  so both closes show up

Go to staff properties, Select the general tab. Then select "Master Repeat Close" for the Ending Bar.
Then remove the ending bar that you entered on the staff.
Rich.

Or, maybe better, select "Open (hidden)" an keep the one you added.
This is useful if you use the option "force system break" on it.

Which should be the default. :(

Master Repeat Close with Forced System Break does the trick too, as far as I could see.

I just learned how to do something new because of this thread: end with something other than the normal double bar line!

I have been writing and notating rounds lately for my choir. Here is a favourite that I was able to change the ending on. It looks great on my screen. However, when I go to print...trouble! It's probably best to keep it as a single line piece but I do like hearing the sound of the round.

Usually, canons are written as a single line with marks where the other voices must start.
By the way: add a little panning to the voices, spreading them along the acoustic horizon, and the effect is much better.

I think you can keep multiple staffs, but they should be the same length.  Add bars of rests at the end of the shorter staffs.

For printing, insert a Master Repeat Close with a page break just before the end of each staff.  Whatever you use for the staff ending in Staff Properties won't show on the page when you print it.

I don't think the repeats work properly when they're aren't aligned staff to staff.

Why not?

Why not?
The flow didn't seem to work when I tested it yesterday, but I cannot replicate the issue today, so may it does work ok.
