Inputting repeat endings with the panel

You can input repeat endings using the Repeat Structures panel, both during step input and by adding them to existing music.


  1. In Write mode, do one of the following:
    • Start note input.


      During note input, you can select additional notes before/after the last input note without deactivating the caret by pressing Shift-Right Arrow/Left Arrow.

    • Select at least one item in each bar that you want to include in the first ending.

  2. In the Notations toolbox, click Repeat Structures to show the Repeat Structures panel.
  3. In the Repeat Structures panel, click Create Repeat Ending in the Repeat Endings section.


The repeat ending is input, with the first ending segment covering the bars in which you selected notes, and a second ending segment created automatically in the following bar.

An end repeat barline is created at the end of the first ending if none exists already.
