I mainly work on classical scores and have never needed endings before, but I am writing a solo guitar piece and have run into an issue.

Normally, a first ending is in effect until there is an indication for a second ending. Why does OV show it over every measure? It should be open, like it looks on the tool itself.

Having a a line over the staff for 20 or 30 measures is wrong.

And if OV has to show it over every measure, how do you get it to extend to a measure on another page? Am I missing something obvious?

The only way I know is to do it in Linear View. As you drag the ending over the various measures it should cover, the score will obediently scroll so you can go as far as you need to.

Cheers,

Alan

Thank you, Alan. That is a ridiculous way to compose but I guess it will have to suffice for now. It still has the problem of having a line above the staff going throughout the score. Unacceptable except for playback purposes.

Pete,

I have little experience with the full landscape of music notation, so . . .

I suspect that the form of notation you wish to use for your "very long first ending" is to use a first ending mark with a fairly short (and open) bracket, with a second ending mark right after the repeat that is at the end of our first ending. That might look like this

I find very little guidance as to this online!

Nor have I yet figured how to make Overture do this in a way that plays properly.

Cheers,

Alan

That is exactly how it is supposed to be.

I'm pretty sure we could not make that formulation in Encore either.

Cheers,
