    • Theoretical Keys

      I would like to suggest implementing theoretical keys. For instance, I have a piece in Cb Major, but I am implementing it into Cb Minor, and would like the piece to accurately reflect as such.

          We already have something like this! You can use NF for free, forever, but if you pay you get extra features. We don’t have something like “get this before others” but we do release new features often, more than every month. Hope that helps!

        • more instruments

          I think we should have more instruments the not premium user that have used up our 30-day trial

                Marking this ‘declined’ but actually I want to understand better. Currently Noteflight must have a note or rest in every place in the bar – there can’t be blank spots as there can with Finale and certain other notation programs.
                Our approach can work quickly and well once you are used to it.
                Did I understand correctly? Thanks!

                      • delete a rest in the beginning of a measure and let the notes come to the beginning of the measure

                        If I have a note or rest in the begin of the measure which I delete, I want that the notes that are in the rest of the measure should move to the begin of the measure.

                          We can see the value of this, but it would require a fundamental reworking of how Noteflight works – making it more like Finale and less like Sibelius. Thanks for your feedback though!

                          I'm a premium user, and I'm transcribing a song that sounds much better basic, so it would be cool if there was an option for premium users to do that. Thanks!

                              The score limit is very annoying, since paying for premium monthly or yearly has you paying constantly.

                                Thank you for writing and sharing your thoughts on this – your feedback is really valuable. We have thought a lot about this and we keep coming back to the fact that, even with regular payments, Noteflight is much cheaper than other notation programs. Buying the yearly plan is much cheaper than monthly. We recommend trying it – you won’t regret it!

                              • allow entering notes via a "piano roll"

                                Currently my workflow starts with Cockos Reaper, where I create my arrangement using the "Piano Roll" feature. Each of my instruments is a different color-coded track, and I compose by selecting which track I want to draw notes (colored bars) onto. Next, I export as MIDI. Next I import into MuseScore and export a MusicXML file. My last step is importing that into NoteFlight for creating a legible score that I can clean up. I'd love to not have to:

                                1) Arrange in Program A.

                                  I don't intend to sign up for Noteflight Premium because my iPad is under school control. I ran out of space to write music, and I went to create a new account with the same email. It said the email already exists. I could give you the username, password, groups, personal scores, everything from my account, but I would like to use my email on two accounts. Thank you!

                                    Your account can be used on any device anywhere – laptop, desktop, iPad, etc – so if you sign up for Premium you can log in at home if you have internet, or at the library, etc.
                                    Also, we don’t allow two accounts on the same email and we are not able to change that.

                                    SO I definitely recommend signing up for Premium – you can’t lose! Let us know if you have followup questions/concerns.

                                      This is of course theoretically possible but it is very non-standard for musicians to read. We make an effort to keep the notation editor simple and straightforward to standard use, so we must reluctantly say no to this interesting idea.

                                        • technique text distance from staff

                                          I'm using technique text to enter fingerings. It is certainly not the best/easiest, but IMO better that using the chord symbol option. One problem is that I am constantly dragging the text up or down when it overlaps other markings such as slurs and bowings. It would be nice if I could set the height in the score settings dialog box. Thanx

                                            I’m marking this “declined” for now but not because it’s not a great idea! Two comments:

                                            1. When you create a text object, then use the arrow keys or dragging to move it up or down, subsequent text objects of the same type will appear by default in the same location. If you move the first one to the optimal position, the others should follow suit. That said, I realize they may need to be at all different positions, which doesn’t help.

                                            2. We try to keep our interface as simple and smooth as possible, so we avoid adding settings options whenever possible. In this case, we hope to avoid adding more settings.
