Just for the record, MuseScore and Dorico (and I'm pretty sure Sibelius) treat endings, regardless of length, as a single object of variable length, not as a collection of lines that the user has to nip and tuck to get to look right. They all display endings properly, regardless of length, without any special effort on the user's part.

I'm with you, David.  I am certain this worked in the past.  I just tried it with 25.5 and it does not work -- my results are as John Robert described.

I have only 25.5 installed on my computer and haven't really used it for almost a year.  So I can't say what version last worked in this regard.  I am pretty sure 2012 worked. at least as far as allowing you to stretch the bracket in scroll mode and display the bracket correctly in page layout.  But even when it "worked" it was still really crappy.  It was difficult to get the brackets to line up correctly, so most scores looked very unprofessional if they had endings more than a couple of measures.  One would have thought sometime in the 30-year history of the product they would have fixed this.

If having endings look correct is important, I'd strongly suggest switching to a product that does them correctly and automatically.

That’s the first thing I tried, David - I got a very long line on the first system that stretched way off the page.

Is this something you have to do for a client or is it your own project?  If it's your own project, might it be better to use some sort of D.S. structure instead of a long first ending?

I just tried my solution and it doesn't work -- sorry.

I guess you just have to place it in page view, where the start of the ending bracket will show on the first system included in the ending, and the end of the ending bracket will show on its system and you'll simply have to place graphic lines on the in-between systems.

I could swear my solution used to work alright when placing it in scroll view, but I may be confusing Finale with Sibelius, where it definitely is much easier to accomplish what you want.
