New repeat starts in the 2nd ending - no third repeat played of the next section

repeat problem.dorico (464.3 KB)

Dear nice people of Dorico Forum,

I have a piece which has a passage which is structured somewhat like the attached score (I attached an empty version –first to reproduce the problem and –second to make it obvious). It looks as I need it, but at the 2nd ending of the second repeated section it jumps immediately to the 3rd ending without repeating the section for the third time.
So it plays: 1 2 3 2 4 5 6 4 5 7 8 9 …
But I needed: 1 2 3 2 4 5 6 4 5 7 4 5 8 9 …
Do I lack some standard notation knowledge (is this a bad idea to notate it like this) or is this a minor bug in Dorico?

Thank you for any kind of information!

Hello @kovatsgergo and welcome to the Dorico forum.
In the bottom panel there is a checkbox in write mode when you select the repeat bar to play n times and indicate 3.
I think you will get what you are looking for.

Thank you!
Exactly what I needed!

For me, it looks to be a little inconsistency, since we don’t need this manual adjustment in regular circumstances (when the beginning of the repeat isn’t part of a second ending).

Anyway, I’m happy for now, thanks again!
