Repeat sign midway through bar

• Mar 4, 2019 - 21:22

Hi there, I have the most recent version of MuseScore (
I have a piece in 2/4 that starts with a quaver anacrusis, which I have excluded from the bar count. I want to put a repeat sign in the 12th bar, after 3 quavers, not at the end of the bar. How can I achieve this?
Thanks for any advice.

Thank you, Louis, but MuseScore doesn't allow this (or I can't make it work). When I follow your instructions, and click on the 3rd quaver (as I want the start repeat just after it), MuseScore puts the start repeat before it. If I click on the 4th quaver, the end repeat is in the right place, but I can't put the repeats together, back-to-back, as in the photo of the professionally printed part.
Thanks for any further advice.

You need to add both repeats to same barline. That is, first split the bar - thus giving you a new regular barline - then apply both the start and end repeat to that same barline.

If you continue to have trouble, please attach your actual score, not just a picture of it.
