Guitar tablature software like PowerTab has a "musical direction" feature that allows you to mark certain passages with symbols (coda, segno, double coda, double segno), and then use notations such as "to coda", "dal segno al coda" and so on to order the musician/playback to skip back to the marked section and continue from there, or possibly continue some other places.
These markers have been used in various tablatures to do things like jump back to a chorus and then jump forward to a verse. This seems like something that can be potentially problematic. For example, if you wish to repeat some part that happened multiple sheet music pages ago, you can certainly do that with a musical navigation sign, but would that be good for the score's usability? I don't think so. Seems to me it's better to just repeat the section inline rather than tell the musician to go hunt for the part multiple pages ago.
So my question is, are there established good practice guidelines for how to use these signs appropriately? Or can I use them however I like and no professional musician will frown upon it?
