Suppress playback on passes with alternate endings

Suppress playback on passes works, but is a special case for alternate endings.

The “pass” on an alternate ending is ambiguous because there is only 1 time an alternate ending is played. So, setting the properly on a part needs to be more careful in this case, whereas, ideally, it shouldn’t need such specific consideration. The “Suppress on passes” does not “work” (is kind of invalid) for the alternate ending measure(s).

Perhaps Dorico should be smart enough to somehow know that this Property setting is not going to “work” as might be immediately assumed by the user.

In this example the alternate ending will play a second time and the playback is suppressed.


So I think Dorico is very smart.
