To tie the first note of a second ending to the note preceding it (and not to the last note of the first ending measure), you need to use the Edit Frame dialog box. Note that the last note of measure 3 should tie to the first note of measure 5 when played the second time round in the example below:

To create this, follow the steps below depending on whether you're tying one note to another, or a chord to another chord. These steps should be taken after all the notes and repeats are entered.

 

Creating a backwards tie for one note

  1. Choose the Speedy Entry Tool icon. The Speedy Frame appears on a measure.
  2. Click once anywhere outside of the measures to dismiss the Speedy Frame.
  3. Press and hold the CTRL (Windows) or OPTION (Mac) key and click the first note of the second ending measure. The Edit Frame dialog box appears.
  4. At the bottom in the Attributes section, check Tie End.
  5. Click OK.

Creating a backwards tie for a chord

  1. Choose the Speedy Entry Tool icon. The Speedy Frame appears on a measure.
  2. Click once anywhere outside of the measures to dismiss the Speedy Frame.
  3. Press and hold the CTRL (Windows) or OPTION (Mac) key and click the first note of the second ending measure. The Edit Frame dialog box appears.
  4. At the bottom in the Attributes section, check Tie End.
  5. Next to Note Slot, click Next.
  6. Check Tie End.
    • Repeat steps 5-6 for each additional note in the chord (e.g. if you have three notes in your chord for which you want backwards ties, repeat 5-6 once more).
  7. Click OK.
