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

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

  3. Enter end or ending into the popover.
  4. Press Return to close the popover.


The repeat ending is input, with the first ending segment covering the bars in which you selected items, 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.
