  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.

    • 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.

      • 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?

          • 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…

            • 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.

              • Add a Better Glissando

                I really love being on Noteflight and I also love the limitless opportunities it provides.

                Unfortunately, I have discovered slight problems with the software. In some compositions I have recently made, I have repeatedly tried to use the glissando option with terrible results. Instead of sliding up and down the fingerboard or extending a slide, it only moves up or down the chromatic scale.

                Not only this problem, but I am also not able to shape them the way I would like them to. The glissando does not continue through different notes (for example if I were to place three…

                • Fix These Problems URGENTLY

                  I believe that everyone (including myself) has been waiting far too long for some of these problems to be resolved and I am becoming quite dissatisfied with some features of Noteflight. I'll just get straight to the points and attempt to explain my best.

                  Crescendos and decrescendos do not carry throughout the notes, they only change when a new note plays. So if I place a decrescendo on a a whole note so that it dissipates, it will play the same volume that it began with until that note ends/moves on to the next note, which ruins the music quite…

                    Thank you so much for this. We are a tiny team and we are working constantly to improve our products. We have a backlog of hundreds of items and we often add new features. All of these are great points and they are on our list! I’m sorry not to have a quicker answer!

                  • Incorporate Color Theme Options Into Scores

                    Most websites have incorporated the ability for a "night mode", or other themes that can be used to change not only the look but the overall feel for the website. I think that varying theme options should be available to Noteflight users.

                    As with reverb effects, the composer of a score can set the theme they'd like their score to be, and when others visit the score, that will be the theme that is displayed. ALSO like reverb effects, the user viewing the score can change the theme to be their preference while in someone else's score, without permanently changing…

                    • be more user-friendly.

                      Noteflight is an amazing online notation editor.
                      For whom;
                      For who wants to write online music.
                      But for the one who wants to read and listen to a score or to play a score with his musical instrument, noteflight is not helpful.

                      My plan is "Noteflight Learn".
                      Personally, I use Noteflight Learn as a music teacher daily to write the scores I want without any difficulty.
                      I use "Noteflight Learn" with my students, especially through
                      Skype.
                      What I notice is that my students, even if they are familiar with computers, have difficulty handling the capabilities of "Noteflight"
                      .

                            Thank you for your message and I’m so sorry for the slow reply! We absolutely agree this is needed, and we are working toward this as quickly as we can. As I understand it, it’s a very different task to do this for music notation than for text as in Google Docs and other things, so it’s taking us a bit longer. But please stay tuned!

                              This could be useful when the same two or four measures are repeated at a certain point in a song.

                              • Allow filtering options for specifically notes, rests, or both, rather filtering for both all the time.

                                My problem: When I filter a section with the 'notes' filter in the edit menu, it filters both the notes and the rests.

                                My solution: I recommend an option that allows filtering of only notes, rests, or both. This way the traditional filter option continues to exist while two new options can be tested and utilized.

                                i.e. I have music that needs certain rests to be invisible. Introducing a rests-only filter would be a great way to facilitate that.

                                I also believe that adding a specific notes-only filter could help facilitate editing of notes in a section as well.

                                    • There's no "choke cymbal" notation.

                                      I really wish there was a way to choke a cymbal with the mark.

                                      • Go back to the standard Basic Trumpet sound.

                                        The new trumpet sound is completely inaccurate and extremely technical sounding. Noteflight should go back to the basic trumpet which had a more realistic and crisper sounding instrument.

                                          How can I make a copy of my score so I don't have to fill all of the information again?
