First and second endings.

Finale 2012 Mac platform

During playback, on the repeat, the first ending plays again before going to the second. Help!

Welcome to the forum!

Instead of creating the repeat endings "manually" yourself, let the Repeat Tool do the job for you:
Highlight the measure(s) that should be the 1st Ending, and go to
Repeat menu > Create First and Second Ending

Playback will be correct.

By examining the repeat endings created by the Repeat Tool you may be able to find out what you did wrong when creating the repeat endings "manually".

Thanks for letting me join your forum. And the tip worked great--playback runs through the repeats without a hitch. Also, I discovered that if you hold control while highlighting the measure, the same repeat menu appears right at the measure you're working on. How cool is that? Sorry about the exuberance, I AM the eternal newbie.
