Looking for Help with a Notation Problem

Post by PeteJ » Sat Feb 17, 2018 4:54 pm

I have a piece in ABA form that repeats da capo from the end of B. The last bar of A needs to be different for the ending so I want to jump to a one bar coda second time around. My problem is that I can't persuade Musescore to do it, This may be my fault and almost certainly is.

How would you tell the player to jump to the coda second time around? The 'to coda' instruction doesn't seem to work but I may using the markers incorrectly. .

Yes! Thanks Bert. So why won't this work when I set it up? I'll try again in case I was having an off-day.

It's made with version 2.0.2, on linux, fwiw.

Aha. problem solved. I thought I could get away with not separating the coda but it seems not to like this. It needed a DC al segno in the end but all is well. Many thanks for taking the trouble. It was, of course, just my stupidity.
