  1. Dynamics bug

    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?

      • fix the laptop version of noteflight

        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.

          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 support@noteflight.com with details about what kind of laptop, what browser you’re using, and what’s going wrong?
          Thank you!

        • acctually work...

          It is easier to score on a stone tablet than it is to use Note flight.

            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 support@noteflight.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!

            Thank you

          • change my song from a trombone to a trumpet part.

            I have a trombone song that I would like to change it to be played by a trumpet without redoing the entire song.

              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!

                  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?

                  • BUG: saving a song while playing it causes it to start over visually

                    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.

                          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.

                              • Let notes of two different duration be played in the same measure.

                                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.

                                  • Keyboard Input Shortcut

                                    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.

                                      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!

                                    • Allow scrolling through list of followers/following

                                      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!

                                      • Let my students access scores in a 'play-only' mode without the need for an account

                                        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.

                                          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
