There is an error with the dynamics. It must be a bug because I checked all settings and couldn’t find any settings that say no dynamic contrasts. Previous scores that I have with dynamics markings won’t function on the playback. Anybody else?1 vote
Please send the score link/URL to email@example.com and let us know what browser you’re using, and we will take a look right away! Also please let us know when you first noticed this happening. Thank you!
I wish NoteFlight would play the dynamics as I have marked them in the score. It is disregarding all dynamic markings during playback.
DYNAMICS ISSUE3 votes
We have fixed this! Please reload everything and you should now hear the dynamics again in all their glory.
We truly appreciate your understanding and patience – and for letting us know promptly about this issue!
recently it has come to my attention that noteflight on the laptop does not let me login what so ever, and it is very aggravating to not be able to create a score on my off time when I am not on my phone or computer. so could you all figure out why this is happening? thank you.1 vote
Thank you for letting us know you’re having trouble! Noteflight works on any device, so there is no specific laptop version that would be having trouble. The site is working in general, so it is likely something specific going wrong. As a first step, could you please try a different web browser? If that doesn’t work, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org with details about what kind of laptop, what browser you’re using, and what’s going wrong?
It is easier to score on a stone tablet than it is to use Note flight.1 vote
We are sorry the site isn’t working for you right now! It’s working in general, so we want to narrow down what the problem is and get you off and running.
Please write to email@example.com and include a full description of the issue, plus your user name, a score that’s having trouble, and the name/version of the browser you’re using.
Don’t go out and buy those stone tablets just yet!
I have a trombone song that I would like to change it to be played by a trumpet without redoing the entire song.1 vote
Hello, You can do this quickly using the Instruments panel. Just click “Instruments” in the top panel, then on the “pencil” icon next to the trombone. In the dialog box that opens, choose trumpet, and the whole part switches.
You may need to select the whole part and type control-up-arrow or command-up-arrow to move all the notes into the trumpet range. Let us know if that helps!
how do i make another page???? i cant do it no matter what!!!!!!!1 vote
You can do this two ways:
1. Continue adding measures, and they will flow onto the next page naturally.
2. Select the measure you want to appear at the end of a page, and go to Layout menu, then click “Page break”. See: https://www.noteflight.com/guide#action-pageBreakAfter
Please let us know if that is not working!
like, if the composer could add text boxes anywhere on the page would be nice3 votes
We have several options and I wonder if these already do what you need?
1. Text boxes above or below
2. Performance text which can be dragged or moved with the arrow keys anywhere on the page
3. Annotation boxes – small boxes that you can open to view a comment
All these options are in the ‘text’ palette.
Does that provide what you need?
Please help me noteflight is appering white and I don't know my username so I can't login on another device
it's not an idea i just need help.1 vote
Hello, please email firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address you used to sign up for Noteflight, and include the following info or as much of it as you can:
— all browsers you’ve tried, with version numbers
— all devices/computers you have tried, including operating system(s)
— screenshots or screen video showing the problem (if possible)
— name of school and school Noteflight site, if you are using one
and we will investigate.
If you press play on a song, and then click to save it, the song will continue playing, but the sheet music on the screen will scroll back to the beginning, forcing you to stop, and play the music again. It's a minor bug, but still incredibly annoying, as it causes the piece to scroll all the way back to its beginning, and when you're working on long pieces, that's very frustrating.3 votes
This should now be fixed. Please make sure your browser is updated to the latest version, and restart it. If you still see any issues, please write to us at email@example.com. Thank you!
Can you tell me why Soundlcoud files won't load in Noteflight?1 vote
We tested this just now and it seems to be working for us… so, we need more info to be able to help. Please send full details of what’s happening – score URL, Soundcloud URL, browser and OS with version numbers, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
I found a huge problem, I somehow changed a snare and bass drum part in my score to treble clef and I can't find a way to change them back. I can't seem to find a button or hotkey for percussion clef, please help!3 votes
To change to percussion, you need to change that instrument to a percussion instrument by opening the “Instruments” panel then clicking the Pencil icon. Or you can create a new percussion instrument and copy-paste the music into it.
Noteflight exports as MP3! But, some browsers such as Safari can not do this so the option is disabled. Try Chrome, Firefox, or Edge browsers.
I'm having trouble with creating the pick up measure. i've read everything. Is there a way to call or chat?1 vote
it doesn't let me log in and I need to login in due to band classes that I am enrolled in for college and they need my project by the end of this week or it will affect my GPA greatly. please help. it is the google chrome book. also, the website does not work on the Chromebook as well.1 vote
Please write to email@example.com with your Chromebook model and operating system and any other details, and we will take a look as soon as possible! Thank you.
I am trying to compose a piece that has a piano part where a whole note E is played at the same time as a dotted half note C followed by a quarter note F. When I try to input this in the music, I am only allowed to put either two dotted half notes or two whole notes on beat one of that measure. If multiple notes are being played in a measure, there should be an option where they can be of different durations.3 votes
You can do this using our ‘Voices’ feature: type U or L for upper or lower voice to add a voice, then type the additional rhythms. See: https://www.noteflight.com/guide#voicePalette
Since the new update, I can't see how many followers I have anymore. Please fix this.1 vote
This is fixed! Please reload the page and try everything again.
I love being able to input notes through my midi keyboard. However, it is also nice to test an idea out on the keyboard before I input it into noteflight. It would be great if there were a keyboard shortcut to toggle on and off keyboard input so that way when I test an idea on my keyboard, noteflight won't try to input it into the score and mess up my work, forcing me to hit the undo button many times.2 votes
Totally great idea! But… if I understand right, we already have it! Just hit Esc so nothing is selected, and you can play the keyboard without entering any notes.
Let me know if I didn’t understand right!
For some reason, Noteflight will no longer allow me to scroll through my list of followers or the list of people whom I'm following. It's really annoying. Also, there doesn't appear to be a place that tells you how many followers you have any more either. Now, that wouldn't be such a big deal if I was able to scroll through and count, but right now, I have absolutely no clue. Please fix this!3 votes
We added a new feature called Score Dashboard that shows you about Views, Comments and Favorites: https://www.noteflight.com/home#/dashboard
Are you looking at the tabs “Your Favorites” and “Your Views”?
Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org with more details about which exact URLs you’re looking about and what’s going wrong.
It's very awkward and impractical to share a single username and password with ALL my students just so they can practice my scores. Take a look at sharing privileges used by Google Docs for reference of how this could work.1 vote
Thanks for writing! If I understand your question right, we already do this! You can share a score so that anyone, with or without an account, and view it and play it back. All this happens in the Connect panel, where you select “anyone can view” and then if you want it to be similar to Youtube’s “unlisted” status, un-check "allow search/browse). More detail here: https://www.noteflight.com/guide#sharing
Also, since you are teaching, check out Noteflight Learn, which has a number of amazing teaching features that could make your life a lot easier! :-) http://www.noteflight.com/learn
