Oh, I was operating on old/incorrect info on how to do this.  That works perfectly, thanks!

I'm not quite sure how to construct an example--I'm working on my scoring for rock/funk band, and I have everything under control due to the great help I've received here. One final sticking point is that I like to mark repeat signs underneath with a "2x" or "4x".  I've been using  tweaked \marks:

    \tweak direction #DOWN \mark "4x"

Problem is, if the closing repeat mark is at the end of a line of music as it decides to typeset it, this text appears at the beginning of the next line instead of at the ending repeat barline where I want it.

I'm guessing that this is not the best way to mark a bar, and I'm not finding the right terminology/concepts to search for what I want on my own.

For example:

\version "2.24.1"

\repeat volta 2 {
  c'1 1 1 1
  \tweak direction #DOWN \textEndMark "4×"


For a mark at the beginning of the line, you'd use \textMark instead of \textEndMark.

Note that you could also use \tweak break-visibility #begin-of-line-invisible \mark "4×" instead of \textEndMark "4×", but using \mark for a textual mark has shortcomings, and it is discouraged starting from version 2.24 in favor of \textMark and \textEndMark. It's only being kept for compatibility. (This is only about \mark <markup>; \mark \default is still recommended for a rehearsal mark.)
