Improve 1st / 2nd / etc endings creation/functionality
Allow text in repeat endings. Text like 'until cue', 'on cue', 'last time', etc, for use in solo sections and other vamps. Noteflight could treat them as only a single repeat in playback.
We have made some improvements to this feature! Take a look.
Yes this is part of the update! Try creating a new 1st ending and you'll see - it can cover any number of measures.

is it possible to extend the line on the 1st ending to cover more measures rather than just a partial measure! Thanks!
Update! We have made a bit improvement in the repeat lines - give it a try!

I completely agree with Deborah and with Scott Erickson. I'm seeing this suggestion has been "Under Review" for about a year. Given how clearly obvious the need for better multiple-bar first- and second-time endings is, why haven't the Noteflight developers made it possible to stretch the ending bracket to include multiple bars, or have it automatically stretch over multiple bars when they're selected as the ending marking is applied?

Agree with Deborah - endings often last multiple measures. While playback handles it fine, it's puzzling that I can, for example, select multiple measures as the 1st ending, yet only half of the first measure of the selection is covered by the bracket. The bracket should extend to the backwards repeat at the 'end of the ending.'
The 1st/2nd ending line lasts only a partial measure. It would be helpful if it could be stretchable to extend over a full measure or multiple measures since endings often last longer than a measure.

While Noteflight has the capability of entering first and second endings on the top staff, it keeps overwriting that first staff entry when I try to add those first and second endings to the lower staves.
Like a song will have an ending 1. before the repeat & an ending 2 after
