  1. Make scores able to be edited by more than one person.

    Make noteflight like google docs so that more than one person can edit a score in live time and you can see each others edits in live time. I tried doing this in noteflight and it ended up discarding all edits that were made while we were both on and we couldn't see what the other person was doing causing confusion. Making scored edited by 1+ person in live time would be helpful for making colaborations on scores when people are at different locations.

  2. allow for the number of strings in tablature to be changed.

    Some basses and bass music call for more than four strings. Some guitars and guitar music call for more than six strings. I wish Noteflight would allow you to add strings to your tabs. I'm sick of writing out tabs for a five string bass on guitar tabs because at the end, when I go print, I have an extra string that throws me off when I go to read the sheet music.

  3. Braces/brackets for instrument groups

    All other notation software companies like Sibelius etc. have put in the most basic of music notation signs - braces/brackets for voice and instrument groups. I am writing for SATB but for it to be published it must have a brace. The finished article has got to look professional and at the moment the finished score doesn't. At the moment I have to transfer it to Musecore and it's getting rather tedious. Please, please can you give this your priority?

  6. add more comprehensive jazz articulations!

    This would include the following:

    -Trombone glissandos that function like the already implemented bend (used in context for guitars), but have a more recognizable squiggly line
    -Bends (the rounded "U" symbol above a note that indicates to lip the pitch down
    -Squiggly lines in general (used for falls)
    -Curved lines (for implied scoops, doits, and shorter falls)

    Of course, this need not be used only for jazz, but since these occur very commonly in jazz repertoire, I feel like this would be very useful!
    Apologies if there is an ongoing thread for this, but that only means many people want…

  7. Add different historical temperaments

    It would be cool to be able to change the temperament to a pre-20th century tuning, to add a more authentic feel to some of the classical music composed on the platform.

    Some temperaments that could be added might be:
    -Pythegorian
    -Just
    -Mean-tone
    -Well

  8. Bug? Tempo problems

    So I started a piece in 120 bpm, but wanted to change the very first measure to 60 bpm, so I did that. All the tempo markings looked right, but for some reason the entire song was playing in 60 bpm. I tried changing the rest of the song to 121 bpm to see if that would fix the problem, but for some reason that just changed the entire song into 121 bpm, including the first measure, which I hadn't selected. I have a rit. in the first measure; would that be affecting anything? Usually if I change the tempo…

  9. How do I center a whole note within a bar?

  10. make it run smoother

    could you please simplify the code so that note flight will work with less lag. On my computer I have to wait about 15-30 seconds to see any not on my screen. My computer is not that bad and can run games and school work totally fine.

  11. Add dynamic support within a note

    As of now, Noteflight playback doesn't allow for crescendo/decrescendo on a single tone or throughout a trill. It would be great to have that feature.

  13. Add the modern pedal feature.

    Their pedal feature uses the variation that looks similar to this: Ped *. Look at any contemporary piece, you will not find that. Instead you will fund the variation that looks like ____/\____. This is necessary for pieces that feature a pedal that briefly "lifts" and presses back down, which is quite a lot. In some pieces I just cannot use noteflight because of this. Please fix this, or else I will have to resort to using another website, and most of those are annoying, laggy, hard to use and just frustrating. And this is making even THIS sight frustrating.

  14. New Offline Version

    I know someone has already posted this, however its of upmost importance to anyone who composers for a full symphony orchestra or larger that we have a downloadable offline version that can run smoothly without massive lag spikes everytime you perform a minute action. If we could use noteflight in offline mode and then go online to upload our scores it would prevent hundreds of hours of our time being lost, simply because of how the slow the program becomes when working with complex scores.

  15. I'd like to be able to put a glissando leading into a note please and thank you.

    It's hard to write some Dixieland stuff without being able to put a glissando in front of trombone notes. Also the grace note input is giving me a headache. :(

  16. have better saxophone sounds.

    The saxophone sound on Noteflight sounds like a trumpet long tone, and for the alto sax it sounds way too piercing. I understand that the saxophone sound is extremely hard to implement, but I would appreciate an attempt to improve it.

  17. allow to me write polytonal music

    I need to write something polytonal which means I can write different keys at different key at the same time instead of having all parts in the same key all the time.

  18. Rim shot notation for drumset

    The rim of a snare drum can add a really cool feel to all kinds of music. It would be really cool to see it sometime in Noteflight's future.
