Hi everyone, I’m new here so please be kind
I purchased Dorico Elements after trying the free SE version. I love what I’m seeing, so thank you Steinberg.
Maybe it’s beginner’s bad luck, but I have a question on repeating certain parts of a score. I write pretty basic (as far as format is concerned) jazz/blues songs akin to the “lead sheets” in the popular songbooks. I have an issue where after a “Dal Segno al Coda”, Dorico ignores a first repeat and goes directly to a second repeat, totally ignoring repeat marks of the 1st repeat. To clarify :-
- ¦: Section A (say 16 bars) is repeated with 1. at bar #15 and the repeat mark at end of bar #16, :¦
- The “segno” is at bar #9
- Section B (say also 16 bars) continues and starts with 2. at bar #17 - the “To Coda” mark is at the end of bar #18 and the “D.S. al Coda” mark is at the end of bar #34 (end of Section B)
- The Coda is 3 bars long (no relevance, but …)
What plays is :-
Section A, with repeats - OK
Section B - OK up to D.S.al Coda - OK
Picks up from “Segno” at bar #9, but ignores the 1. repeat mark at bar #15 and continues from bar #17 - NOT OK
Reaches the “To Coda” at bar #18 and jumps to the Coda - OK
Musically, it should still cycle through the repeat marks in section A … or am I wrong ?
Any idea how I can make section A repeat after coming from a D.S. al Coda ?
