  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 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.

  8. Be able to edit the title in strip and flow layout

    It is a hassle to change the title and composer when started in strip or flow layout. What is currently required is to change to page mode (which usually takes a while and lags out) then select and type. It would be helpful for there to be a quicker way on strip or flow layout, for large pieces this is a hassle.

  10. have the option to use completely different key signatures for individual instruments

    No, I'm not talking about "Show concert pitch". I'm trying to write out part of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto, where the instruments are in the key of A Major, while the clarinet is in the key of C ( Concert Bb Major). Toggling "Show Concert Pitch" only messes up all of the notes and makes everything difficult to adjust.

    I'm talking about a way to select one key signature for one instrument, and a completely different key signature for a different instrument.

    This would make everything so much easier and put Noteflight on an even higher level than Musescore because…

  11. 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…

  12. 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!

  13. 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"
    .
    My students…

  14. 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…

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

    My whole notes are off center within the bar and it looks bad. I tried the center chord feature but it did nothing...how do I fix this?

  16. 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.

  17. Change the standard drums back, not cymbals

    The standard drums is what I use for all my band writing, but the drums changed in the upgraded version of Noteflight, and not for the better. The cymbals are for sure better, but with the upgraded, the drums, especially the kick, now sound off and unreal. They were much better in the free version. If you could mix the old drums with the new cymbals on the standard drum set that would be perfect.

  18. allow me to to choose in any note the direction of the curved line of the tie.

    In other words, when the tie joins notes from B4 and above, then the curve of the tie is up.
    However, the other notes from A4 to lower with a tie have the curve down.
    I would like to be able to choose in any note the direction of the curve of the tie.
    This is an example, what noteflight allows now:

  19. Live Composition Template

    A type of composition template where you can invite other users to compose with them in real time. If you are familiar with the app BaiBoard then you'll know what I'm talking about. A private active template where composers can collaborate in real time, at the same time.

    Maybe I am crazy, but I can't seem to get this to do a mid bar repeat. So, if someone can direct me, that'd be rad, otherwise, please add this feature!
