  1. have more features for email notifications.

    I'm using NoteFlight in my piano studio, and it'd be great if I could edit my email preferences so that I receive notifications when students add new material, ask a question, or share something with me.

  3. refine piano pedal notation and playback

    Make pedaling notation user freindly, easier to read, and more stremlined by giving users a choice in what kind of styling to use. (Ped. * or just a line w/carrots ______^________)

  4. improve keyboard shortcuts

    There are a lot of functions that should have a keyboard shortcut, but don't:
    anything in the menu. (ex. change clef)
    moving up/down staves
    move to the beginning or end of the piece
    move to the next section or page, or perhaps jump eight measures in strip layout
    go to measure number
    move staff up or down
    select multiple staves

  5. Create a random button

    Wouldn't Noteflight be more fun and interesting if we had a random button that we could click on? It would take us to a random public score. This could bring attention to music that we may have never heard before.

  6. Rare Instruments

    We have all the common instruments, but it would be SOOOOO much better if we could compose for rare instruments. Here are some that I'd like added:

    Woodwind:
    - Contrabassoon
    - Alto, Bass, Contrabass and Subcontrabass Flute
    - Bass and Contrabass Saxophone
    - Change 'English Horn' to 'Cor Anglais'

    Brass:
    - Piccolo and Bass Trombone
    - Euphonium

    Strings:
    - Octobass
    - Bass and Cello (we have these, but they need to extend their ranges below the C at 2 ledger lines below the bass staff)

    Vocal:
    - Male Altos and Sopranos
    - Female Tenors and Basses
    - Countertenor
    - Contrabass …

  7. Braces/brackets for instrument groups

    All other notation software companies like Sibelius etc. have put in the most basic of music notation signs - braces/brackets for voice and instrument groups. I am writing for SATB but for it to be published it must have a brace. The finished article has got to look professional and at the moment the finished score doesn't. At the moment I have to transfer it to Musecore and it's getting rather tedious. Please, please can you give this your priority?

  8. Add actual jazz chord notation - not modified classical.

    Slash Chords, use of the maj7th triangle and diminished * symbol. Also the invisible chords boxes should be overlays not opaque white boxes which obscures the staff in default positioning.

    Overall, Noteflight is very weak for working with jazz charts and scores. It really needs improvement in this area.

  9. Allow to have 3 or more voices per staff, instead of just 2

    It is a pretty basic function that most other composition programs offer, and have been used for hundreds of years in different kinds of notation. It is too limiting as it is presented today on noteflight, and have been that for too long.

  12. Create Chords and Bass Lines from Chord Symbols

    So you can type in your chords, then have Noteflight auto-notate a bass line or chords for the symbol. It seems quite simple to do, as you each chord has it's distinct sound...

  13. Allow Custom Templates to Be Created

    I recently upgraded to Cresendo, and was a bit disappointed with the instrument selection feature. When you open a new score, the program asks you to chose a template. While all of these options are pretty good, I would like to both be able to create my own templates and title them myself, or be able to select the unique instruments I want in the beginning without having to choose a template and either add or delete instruments.

    We agree. However, an easy way to achieve templates in Crescendo today is for you to create your own template scores and put them in a Collection called “templates”. When you want a new score, open one of these template scores and choose File > Save A Copy.

  14. Add the note name in for you.

    I wish noteflight.com has an optional feature to add the names of the notes for you. It would be extremely helpful for beginners or when assigned by a teacher. Now I have to go in and take the time to write out every note name, because we were required to use noteflight.com instead of my normal music writing software which had that option available.

  17. Add French Horns to the Free version of Noteflight

    It is difficult to compose any music for the horn selection without French Horns, and still make it sound good. I understand that there must be aspects in the Premium version that the free version doesn't have, so that people feel the need to buy it, but French Horns are so essential in my composing, it's hard to write without them. Please Help! Thank you :)

  19. Make it possible to write for Euphonium/Baritone

    Well, basically I write a lot of pieces for marching and symphonic/wind ensembles. Every time I go to write the Euphonium part, I have to use Trombone (for Bass Clef Euph.) or Trumpet an octave down (for Treble). Noteflight, could you sample some Euphoniums to add to the list of instrumentation?

  20. Stop the hi-hat audio when a hi-hat is "closed"

    As a drummer, I often find myself frustrated with the fact that when I play an open hi-hat note, and want a sort of "tee-op" sound by closing the hi-hat soon afterwards (usually a 16th or 8th note later), the audio does not cut off and I have to listen to it ring throughout the beat until the actual audio sample ends. My suggestion would just be to cut it off when a "hi-hat with foot" or a closed hi-hat (+) is notated, if not use an actual audio sample for the cut-off. I made a quick score that shows…
