      Re-loading the Noteflight web page fixes most problems like this — it’s often just a temporary glitch. Next, try quitting and restarting your browser. You can also try other browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari (Internet Explorer will not work), and make sure they are updated to their latest versions.

      If the problem continues, please write to support@noteflight.com and send us:

      — 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)

      and we will investigate.

      Thank you so much!

      PS are you the person who already wrote to support? If so, all the better – thanks!

    • Allow me to set the Program Number, MSB, and LSB on MIDI export.

      My current use case is that I compose music in Noteflight, export it as midi, edit the program number, msb, and lsb on my laptop, load it onto my Kawai CA-97, and record the resulting audio into Reaper. I am doing this so I can take advantage of Kawai's built in sound banks (the midi mappings for program number, msb, and lsb are published in their user manuals) for pieces that are beyond my current playing proficiency. While I acknowledge that this is an uncommon scenario, having an 'advanced export' for lower level control would be greatly appreciated.

      • add a MIDI Panic button

        MIDI Panic is a button that produces a "Note off" signal for every possible MIDI key. This prevents midi notes hanging.

        • allow one to increase all note/rest lengths by some proportionate amount (adjusting for measures).

          There should be a function to increase or decrease the lengths of all notes/rests in a piece, or for some selected section, by a scaled amount. For example, in a section consisting of only sixteenth/quarter notes and rests, "2X" would double all these to eighth/half notes/rests. There should also be an adjustment for any necessary increase in measures.

              • have more customizable breath marks

                Breath marks should be at the end of a measure or right next to the note following the note for which the breath is to be taken. That is, if I have a dotted half note and a quarter note on beat four, and I want to breathe after the dotted half note, the breath mark should be just to the left of the quarter note, not just to the right of the dotted half note. Or just let us be able to move breath marks around.

                • Allow more variation in the denominator of the time signature

                  In one of my pieces, i need a pickup measure to insert one note of a triplet. Sadly, there is no 1/3 time signature, and its impossible to write 1/3 as a/2^n where n is less than 7. This might not be much of problem at the beginning of scores, where a 1/4 measure can consist of 2 triplet rests and one note, but in the middle of a piece this doesn't work
                  Triplets are used so often that they deserve their respective time signature denominators:3,9,and 27. I understand why irregular denominators are excluded, but 3 really isnt that irregular.

                    As far as we know, numbers like 3, 9, and 27 are extremely rare in the denominator. Could you share some examples where you’ve seen this? We don’t want to rule it out but we tend to avoid non-standard notation.

                    Thank you!

                  • Is there a way to put a whole chord (3+ stacked notes) in one set of parenthesis (versus 3+ sets of parentheses)? Thanks.

                    If your chord isn't stacked in thirds, the parentheses start to clash and it's very hard to read.

                      There is no direct way to do that right now, but here is one option: make a new Performance text item, and format it like this:

                      ( )

                      Then open Score Settings and Musical Text, and make the Performance Text font size big. Then drag that item around your notes.

                      The downside is that then all other Performance text items will be big.

                      If you have no other chord symbols, you could do the same thing with that type of text, and thus not affect Performance text.

                    • Different key signatures for different instruments

                      I am writing a piece and would like one line to be in 6/8 and another to be in 2/4 but keep the same pace so I don't have to write the bottom line in duplets. Any way this can be implemented?

                      • Make cover art optional on scores.

                        Many users with small screens are forced to scroll down to see the Favorite button. If they are new to Noteflight, they may not even know it is there. Another option is to move the Favorite button up. I don't want to waste time promoting my scores if people who listen to them don't easily see they can favorite them.

                          • Longer scores get bogged down; could a "batch edit" or "section edit" mode, help?

                            Even minor edits within a single bar can necessitate recalculation of every system and page break throughout a score. This limits score length and complexity, as those calculations become increasingly costly.
                            One possible workaround: copy a section; paste to a new score; update section; copy & paste to original score. But this is cumbersome.
                            Could noteflight build in a facility to automagically create "sections," which one could work on, then "check in" batches of changes?

                              • Add instrument mixing throughout songs.

                                Basically, it's the mixer bar, but there's a way to make it change as the song plays. Maybe there's a pencil icon next to a setting (volume or channel) and it allows you to draw the setting on the music which changes up and down throughout notes and measure.

                                Let's use an example: You click the pencil icon on "volume" and draw a line going left to right in the music, and you're able to move the line up and down, the higher the line is, the higher the volume, the lower the setting, the lower the volume. This is…

                                • 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.

                                  • Allow me to have multiple instruments playing the same notes instead of having to enter the same notes separately for each instrument.

                                    I want to be able to take a score, and have multiple instruments playing that same score without needing to enter the same notes twice.

                                    • Be able to change tempo markings within the middle of a measure, and not only at the downbeat of a measure.

                                      I have tried everything I could, but nothing seems to work.

                                      Basically, my end goal is to do a ritardando for a measure before I kik it back into the original tempo at the next measure, but Noteflight's attempts do it too slow for what I am trying to accomplish.

                                      I tried my hardest to put a tempo marking in (beat 4) of the measure, but it only allows me to change it at the downbeat (beat 1) of the measure.

                                      Is this possible? If so, how can I do it?

                                      • Have a custom palette.

                                        You can put all your most frequently used icons in a custom palette that can be used like any other. Also great for mobile where there’s only room for one palette

                                        • add longer note values

                                          So... I'm a dude who enjoys choral composing and writes in 4/2 sort of often, but there is currently no breve option so I have no choice but to tie two whole notes together; it looks sort of unaesthetic.
