NO. Listen carefully - PLAY ON PASS! :-D

It's in the INSPECTOR!

What should I select/highlight exactly in my score in order to open the Inspector?

Thank you

It's in the INSPECTOR! [ctrl/cmd][shift]i

Select all the notes which don't play and open the inspector.

Make sure all boxes under Play on Pass are ticked.

It worked.
Thank you

I did what you explained with Inspector and it plays back correctly.

The only part I did not yet understand, is, how you figured out the repeat problem with Dal Segno sign last time in my score.
I would like to learn the more detailed procedure.

Thanks again and appreciated your help.

My best advice to you is to read the sections of the manual to do with repeats. If you're still stuck come back to me.

Rukes of Thumb:

1. Always use text not zymbols for segno and coda wheel
2. Coda wheel should be the same text object as the text (To Coda/Coda) you can (and should increase the font size for the wheel (and segno) to make it much bigger than the text (24pt instead of 12pt as an example).
3. Always keep a close eye on your attachment points.
4. when all esle fails, manual repeats is you new best friend.
5. If your bar numbers suddenly disappear, you've done something stupid with your repeat structure.
