When I have a 2 note chord and try to make the top one last longer than the bottom one, it makes both of them longer and I only want the top note longer.3 votes
Hello, and glad to help!
You can do this by creating a second voice in the same staff: to create a new voice above the current one, type U for upper. Or L for lower. That gives you a new whole/bar rest, and then you can add the new rhythms.
Hi. I am just wondering how to change the tempo of the entire song to be the same.1 vote
First Command/Control-A to select all. Then open the tempo palette and type in a new number. See: https://www.noteflight.com/guide#tempoPalette
If there is another tempo marking you don’t need later in the piece, just delete it.
Let us know if that helps!
I entered a three-lined percussion staff. I like to label each line as tap-clap-snap in the beginning. How do I do that?1 vote
You can create the labels as text above the first measure. Unfortunately there’s no way to add this in the left margin, at the moment.
I need to select a few measures over a page turn. There isn't a way to do this.3 votes
You can do this as follows:
- click the first measure you want selected
- scroll to see the last measure you want selected
- hold shift and click that measure
that selects the range in between.

There is a keyboard icon, on the upper right, to hide and show the piano keyboard. To create text, use the buttons to start the text item in the text palette (such as ‘Performance’ text or Chord text. Then the on-screen computer keyboard will pop up.
I'm trying to write a piece for my high school band, and i'd like to be able to print separate parts but show them on the same staff in the score, or if you're writing harmonies and decide you'd rather have them on the same staff have an option to combine them on to one staff1 vote
I believe you can do what you need to but I want to be sure I understand. Could you write to email@example.com and include the link to your score and a full explanation of what you need to do? Thanks!
I do not have share button on my score, how can I share??1 vote

So I have noticed that if you click above or below a note you can put a second one on the same beat. Touch controls don't seem to be able to do this. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this just not possible with touch?1 vote
Hello, you can do this as follows: touch the first note 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.
My problem: The copy and paste options in the score editor tend to ignore the formatting of what is being, copied and pasted.
Some examples: Beaming of subdivided notes, note colors from the color menu, etc.
My solution: Allow for formatting to be copied with the notes. (I believe that Microsoft word/excel/etc has an option like this that would be worth emulating).1 vote
This should work IF you select whole measures via the grey panel that appears when you hover or tap above the staff.
please take into consideration an option in which we can turn off the sound effect they have recently put, the echo.
the site should give us the option of being able to choose whether I would like to have the sound of the "basic violin" or the new violin.
thank you7 votes
You can turn this off in the mixer if you have Premium or Learn. If you’re not sure, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I cannot copy and paste new parts because the clipboard only remembers the previously copied section. This makes it hard to arrange things.3 votes

When I try to Slur notes, it always end up playing both notes. I have tried switching up the instruments but same glitch occurs. Plus I've tried not putting slurs, i.e. dots on notes but there is no to word some of the notes such as quarter notes slurred to 16th3 votes
A slur is supposed to play both notes, with smooth transition between them.
A tie looks the same, but it joins the two notes (same pitch) as one duration. See: https://www.noteflight.com/guide#action-tie
I could not for the life of me find pizzicato. It's just plucking for the "bowed instruments" and essential to the song I'm writing. I looked it up on help and in every reasonable menu, and it wasn't there. The closest thing I could find was "plucked instruments" (which did not include my orchestra instruments). Please fix this soon! I've only ever had this one cool song idea and I really want to try it out before I forget my idea. Thanks!3 votes

I already pay 50.00 a year. Why isn't all of the music on this sight included in this price. It used to be included. I might quit you.
All music on this sight used to be included in the 50.00 per year price. Now sheet music directs wants additional money. This sucks. Teachers already buy tons of materials with their own money, now you want more. It seems like the best songs cost an additional fee. I may not renew next year because of this. You change things. That disappoints me greatly.1 vote

I click print, but instead of saying "your score is ready to be printed", it says "proccesing page 0", meaning it is not printing.3 votes
Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org if this is still happening!
add a lot more dynamics, including sforzando and rinforzando with other dynamics (plus extreme markings) and the extreme ones themselves
It is unfair that not all dynamics can be used.3 votes
You can already notate these by adding ‘expression’ text, then typing in whatever you need. Are you asking for these to affect playback? Not all do, currently.
