    Want to include repeat choruses at the end of a song before the coda, but not have them appear in the score.
    Checking the "Show in Score" button only displays empty bars before the coda. Ideas anyone?

    I would Save As and edit the arrangement in that file until it's just what I want in the score, then print that.

    The repeat signs belong to the Bar Line Symbols in the Score Editor. There is one special Symbol that lets you hide individual bar lines, but you cannot set the bar repeat symbol at a position and then hide it from the score.

    But ... here is a neat workaround:

    Bar Line Symbols like most of the score symbols are stored in Logic as Meta Events and can be edited in the Event List as Meta Events. However, Bar Line Symbols are not stored in the Event List, they are Global Events and stored in the Signature List, and that has one major advantage:
    Remember that you have 9 Signature Sets (accessible from the Signature List popup menu). Copy all the events from the current Signature List (with the repeat sign) and paste them into a new Signature Set. Now delete all the repeat signs from that Set and you can then switch between the two Signature Sets, one with and one without the repeat signs.

    You can find more of those in-depth coverage of the Score Editor and the various Sets (Marker, Signature, Tempo) in my "Graphically Enhanced" books "Logic Pro X - How it Works" and "Logic Pro X - The Details"
