I'm looking for the clearest way to set up an alternate ending. The piece has the structure:
 
AABBACCDD.
 
Each of the sections has a 1st and 2nd ending.  I would like to have an alternate version of the D section. My thought so far is to put a Coda Sign just before the first ending of C, with the other Coda sign giving the revised 2nd ending for C, then the alternate DD section.  I would also put a bold line between the original D section and the alternate D section.  Finally I'll include a performance note explaining what's supposed to happen.
 
Any other ideas?  (I can post a picture if that would help)
 
Thanks.

There are plenty of ways of doing this.  My preference would be to write the whole thing out with no repeats.  That usually results in the best sight-reading performance.  If you MUST repeat everything that repeats, you will have a very complex road map, possibly containing two DSs.  A slight modification involves writing out A3 and results in the attached example.  I think the "alternate coda" is fairly self explanatory.  Don't count on anyone reading your rehearsal notes.

I always write out the A3 section and label it "A (Reprise)"  With that, your solution is almost the same as what I had come up with. Many thanks.
