  1. Pickup measures should not be numbered

    I think in the older version of Noteflight the pickup measures were not numbered, but now it seems they are. Can we have numbering start from the first full measure?

    • Allow non-premium users/all users to play individual instruments in a score (ex. only violin part)

      When composing, it would be great to be able to select the part you want to listen to so you could edit it without having to ignore the piano part in the background for example

      • Develop a printable keyboard and staff lines for notes for new learners

        My grandson is just learning to play piano. If there was an image of a keyboard with corresponding staff lines and note names displayed at the top of each page, he could proceed with less frustration. Like most beginners, he is eager to make music. Thanks.

        • give option of having the rhythm symbols / beats in a score's staves align. Same rhythms in two lines do not align, even w/ moving barlines.

          If not forcing these align (even when the words are the same in adjacent lines), please provide option in Document Layout to adjust or align the measures, words, rhythms, beats, or whatever. The staff and note spacings are great options, but those haven't helped me align the measures and meats.

          • Lock Pitches/Rhythms from being Edited

            As a teacher, I use Noteflight to create activity templates all the time. It would be great for me to be able to lock pitches, rhythms, voices, staves, etc. so that students could not edit them - accidentally or intentionally. For example, consider a Figured Bass exercise. Imagine being able to lock the bass voice entirely so that students could not alter the pitches.

            • Snippets Library

              Why not have a library of musical snippets, that can be easily pasted into the curent measure(s)?

              For example, Notion's "Progression" program comes with a set of generic drum parts in different styles which make it easy to cut and paste together as simple drum accompaniment.

              "pianochap" suggested a collection of rhythmic patterns with his "Auto-generate parts" suggestion, like "Band in a Box".

              While a bit less automatic than auto-generated parts, a snippets library could contain many useful bits that could simplify writing music:

              * Bass lines in various styles;
              * Piano accompaniments in various styles;
              * Guitar riffs in…

                Thanks for the detailed thoughts. These are valuable ideas, and we’ve been mulling this kind of thing over for a while. We’ll probably mull a while longer before doing it, because we want to think more about how this could work in an online context where snippets can be shared.

              • allow bass notes in chords to be entered UNDER the chord, not just next to it (with a backslash)

                Right now, to show a bass note in a chord chart, you can use the slash idea (C/G = C Chord over a G Bass) but it would be nice to have the G go underneath the C directly - maybe by using an underscore

                • AUTO LABELS

                  Hi. So i put together video with explanation of how you could improve program.
                  As far as i know, no notation software yet, has not function to automatically add labels besides notes. Please watch my video in english (3 minutes long) and you will understand. Me and a lot of people who write notes profesionally for their studens, they miss this feature.

                  • have another a cappella arranging contest!

                    You had an a cappella arranging contest in 2015. I would love to see it come back annually. If you were to do it again, could you have the judges give feedback on the score? I would have loved to know what I could do to improve my arranging.

                    • triplets continue as triplets!!

                      when making a whole passage of triplets, it would be very easy to write them in midi, except that i keep having to go back to the keyboard because it keeps defaulting to duplets!

                        • Direct link to scores in top toolbar

                          Go straight to my list of scores from a link on the main page, eg a large Home icon next to noteflight icon. At the moment we have to click noteflight - home which is really annoying! Thanks

                          • Selecting highest, lowest or similar notes

                            I really miss the option of being able to select the highest or lowest notes in a score to edit or delete them. Especially if I've imported an awkward midi file. Also to be able to select all following F#'s (for example) in the score would be handy too..

                            • PLEASE ALLOW US TO GROUP SYSTEMS INTO SET PAGES and to group measures into fixed systems

                              It's infuriating that you can't manually select which groups of systems you want in a specific page. You can't create page breaks. You can't even (truly) create custom system lengths because, in the end, the spacing is up to the automatic spacing.

                              When you try to mess around with the automatic spacing, you just end up messing up other things.

                              It's hard to format a chart easily, or precisely with this program. Sad!

                                It would be nice to have different types of ritarndando. I only want the tempo to get a little slower, but the effect I get by default is too slow.

                                • 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.

                                  • Recognize H (H7, Hm7) as valid chords

                                    In Scandinavia and Germany, B is marked as H, and Bb is marked as B.
                                    Noteflight's chord notation doesn't seem to recognize chords starting with H. This sould be simple to fix.

                                    • Allow Dialog in Upper Right Corner of Printed Page

                                      Text within a dialog box can be dragged to upper corner (above headings) but will not stay there, it drops to below the composer spot.

                                      • moving the cursor within a chord

                                        this seems like a very basic function needed right from the start, but nothing works...there always is a combination of shift, command or sth else+ cursor that does that, but here I just can;t figure it out. any help appreciated

                                        • Still allow to move a note up or down while playing.

                                          Sometimes i play an arrangement to listen and while listening i find the need to just move a note and listen again, it takes a little while to stop playing mode move the note and play again.
