Changing the number of playthroughs at repeat barlines

End repeat barlines typically indicate that the preceding music is played through twice. You can change the number of playthroughs for each end repeat barline individually.


If you are in Engrave mode, Graphic Editing is selected in the Engrave toolbox.


  1. Select the end repeat barlines whose number of playthroughs you want to change. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Play n times in the Time Signatures group.
  3. Change the value in the value field.

    The minimum value is 2.


The number of times the music preceding the selected end repeat barlines is played through is changed. A marker is shown at system object positions that indicates the number of playthroughs set when this is 3 or more.
