I believe this would be a great Idea an must be added in Muse-score. It would be a nice addition for solos, or soli. It would add a nice touch to your music without the hassle of having to expand your music and copy and paste the whole section again,just to change one part in the music.

Also it would be great to have an automatic chord generator, for making improvised solos in jazz, but that's far-fetched so it's just an Idea.

Thank you.

As a former Sibelius user, this is the feature I miss most (and would use regularly, as would my band mates). If memory serves, the Sibelius 6 implementation assigned a playback property in notes to a number of times that would apply to repeats (something like 6 or 7) and all would be checked by default, however just unchecking the first one would make the playback tacet first time. Not sure if it's appropriate to deploy the same methodology directly, but I thought I'd share this as a reference point. Thanks!

+1 I would also like this feature. Obviously there's nothing wrong with unrolling repeats but it would be quite elegant to have this tied into playback.

+1; would remove the need to create a duplicate of the score just to unroll repeats for correct audio export, but to keep the compact score visually intact for human readability.

    1. It would be great if it was similar to a Sibelius - where can control which repeat plays and which don't ( play 1 tacet 2 play 3 tacet 4 etc)

Having something like the RepeatList property of a Volta on other elements could be a possible (but perhaps not too user friendly) way.

I had a fairly decent approach started by 3.5, but we'll have to see how much of the approach will still be valid with the new playback engine workings of 4.0...

Regression No Yes
Workaround Yes No

Agreed. I have numerous scores where (a) the dynamics are different in second (or third...) repeat or (b) are 8va in the second repeat. Having a feature supporting this would be far superior to unrolling repeats.
