Repeats (barlines and text indications)

Noteman says: See Adding repeat barlines and endings for a step-by-step tutorial on adding repeats in Finale, or view the Add repeats and endings to my document QuickStart Video for an overview.

Repeat barlines in Finale can be either purely graphical or fully functional for playback. For standard repeat configurations, such as repeats with first and second endings, and even repeats with several endings, Finale defines playback for you automatically. For more advanced repeats, such as a D.S. al Coda, you can create text repeats and define them for any playback configuration. See Coda; D.S. al Coda; and D.C..

For information regarding repeats in scores with linked parts, see Repeats in linked parts.

Multiple endings

You can easily create a repeat with first and second endings that will playback correctly.
