Just place the play head at the end of the recorded section - or where you want the new recording to begin. Then hit the punch in button and it will continue from that point. You can also back up a bit to get an "intro" and Mixcraft will begin recording from the punch in point.
Of course you could also just press "pause" after the first section and then "record" from that point - but you won't get any lead up.

Assuming you want to do intro, verse 1, verse 2; first set the snap to "snap to measure"
Right click on the track header and select Recording mode>Overdub.
Now record the first section - let's say intro - 4 measures.
Trim the intro to where you want the next section to begin then highlight the verse 1 section - let's say 8 bars. Click the punch in/out button.
Rewind to start and hit record. Mixcraft will play the intro and then continue to record whatever you lay down in the next 8 bars.
Continue throughout the song. You don't need to go to the start every time. Just place the play head anywhere before the punch in and it will play from there and start recording at the punch in.
The point of setting "snap to measure" is that so the new highlighted section will not overlap the pre-recorded section - resulting in lanes.

Just tried it again on a rough test and it definitely works OK for me. The only way I can get it to go to lanes is if I overlap the first section. Maybe zoom in close and make sure that is not happening. Also, once you have recorded the first part and set the punch in/out for the second; rewind to start and hit record again. It won't record over the first part.
There's another way to do this too by recording each successive part on a separate track. i.e. intro on track 1, verse 1 on track 2 etc. Just remember to un-arm the track just recorded. You'll end up with a bunch of "stepped" tracks but each can be trimmed by splitting and deleting unwanted bits. Then just drag lower clips to butt onto the end of clip 1. They can then be merged when the recording is complete.
