      We are so sorry to hear this and happy to help get things working faster for you.

      One thing to try is to put the score into Page view, rather than Strip view – that is often faster for large scores. But that will likely only go part of the way, so I have a couple of questions.

      Does the problem seem to get worse the longer the score is open and being edited? In other words if you save the score, log out, quit the browser, and then start everything again, is the problem less severe at first?

      Please write to support@noteflight.com to let us know the main devices and browsers you’re using, including computer operating system (Mac OS or Windows number), and browser version (you can usually find this in the top-left corner under “About…”)

      We will test the problem in an environment as close to yours as…

    • add figured bass

      It would be nice if we could compose/enter baroque music with a figured bass.

      • Allow me to control how many measures are in a line.

        I wanted the begging line to have three measures, but it had FIVE! I also want an intro note.

            Hello! If you are using Internet Explorer, unfortunately that browser is no longer maintained by Microsoft and you will need to switch to Edge. Chrome and Firefox also work well. If you are already on one of those browsers, as a first step, restart the browser and make sure it’s updated to the latest version.
            If no luck, please email me at support@noteflight.com with full details. Thanks!

          • Uh, guys? You can't put crescendo, and only allow for one dynamic. Dude.

            I think the dynamic-typing-thing should link to specific notes then 'unclip' itself when you click something.

                We hope you won’t cancel! But if you do, all scores are archived. When your account is in “Free/Basic” state (no subscription), you can then have up to 10 active scores – these can either be existing scores that you un-archive, or newly created scores.

                Once you subscribe again, all scores become active again.

                • Update the sound of the french horn

                  right now the french horn is too quiet for me to hear, it would be nice if you could make it a little louder like a normal horn usually sounds.?

                  • How do you get two different key signatures at the same time?

                    I am writing a piece but I want to add instruments that use different key to the other instruments.

                      Hello! Noteflight automatically handles different key signatures for transposing instruments. The important thing is to have each staff designated as the instrument you want, with the correct transposition in the Instruments panel. To make sure, click the “Instruments” button in the top panel: that opens a dialog box showing the instruments you have. Click the instrument’s name to see its “octave” and “key” which determine its transposition. This is not the key of the piece – just the key of the instrument’s transposition.

                      The “Concert Pitch” button determines how each instrument appears in your score and parts. If all instruments are correctly designated, when you uncheck the Concert pitch button, the transposing instruments, such as B-flat clarinet, will automatically appear transposed. They will also print out, correctly transposed, when you “print individual parts.”

                      Read these sections of our User’s Guide:
                      https://www.noteflight.com/guide#transposeParts
                      https://www.noteflight.com/guide/new#action-concertPitch

                      We also recommend this article about transposing in…

                    • Automatic Choir Parts

                      When you create a score, it automatically has a one track piano staff. Since a lot of people use this for choral scores, I was thinking there could be an option to automatically start off with SATB (or SSA, SSAA, SAB, etc.) choir with the tracks already there so you wouldn't have to continuously individually add each track in every single time you'd want to create a new choral score. Just a thought!

                      • bring back deleted scores or erased

                          Still having issues copying and pasting. When I copy and paste the 'clipboard' remembers the previous copied section and not the new. It is making using the programme really difficult and happens on all kinds of devices. Please fix this.

                              I know how to play one instrument at a time but sometimes when I need to hear both instruments play at the same time I can't hear them over the rest of the band. I would like it so you could play two instruments at the same time without the rest playing, not just one.

                                    Just put in your search tab thing an option to write 'how to blah blah blah' so if someone doesn't know how to do something they can look up instructions while still in the program. Also how the heck to you delete a repeated bar lines sign?????

                                        Hello! Note entry on a touch device is generally via the on-screen piano keyboard. To add multiple notes, touch all the notes you want at once; OR, touch the first one and hold your finger down, then touch the other notes you need, and they will all be added onto the same stem as a chord.

                                        To select multiple notes or measures on an iPad or iPhone:

                                        1. Tap the first note (the cursor will start to blink)
                                        2. Put one finger on the last note of the range of notes you want to select (don’t release it!)
                                        3. Right away, tap back on the first note you selected.

                                        See here for a demonstration: https://youtu.be/L9YQ3CeTQ7Q

                                        • Add a baritone instrument

                                          I play Baritone and for a band project I had to come up with a song. I thought no big deal they will have a baritone instrument but, no you don't so I had to listen to it in piano and it sounds good but I am not sure how it will sound with a baritone.
