Changing the total number of playthroughs in repeat endings

By default, each segment in repeat endings is played once, so each segment shows a single digit that indicates the playthrough for which it is used. You can increase the total number of playthroughs for repeat endings individually so that segments are played more than once.


  • The lower zone is shown.

  • Properties is selected in the lower zone toolbar.

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


  1. Select the repeat endings whose total number of playthroughs you want to change. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate No. times played in the Repeat Endings group.
  3. Change the value in the value field.

    You cannot have fewer playthroughs than the number of segments.


The total number of playthroughs in the selected repeat endings is changed. Dorico Pro adds additional playthroughs to the last closed segment in the repeat ending.
