Try to replace a sequence by one or many repeat signs.

When placed after a bar, n indicates the number of measures to be repeated (it may be only 1 or 2). k indicates how many times the previous measure is to be repeated (n must be 1).

When placed after a note or rest, n indicates the number of notes and rests to be repeated, and k how many times this repetition occurs.

When omitted, n and k default to 1. No check is done on the equality of the sequences.
