      • A different view of my student's namelist

        I would like an option of a more compact view of my students names when I am going from student to student examining their work. Many times the student is listed below the screen and I have to scroll down to see their name to select their folder of work.

          • Be as fast as any other website.

            Noteflight is slow now. It would be better if it were fast.

              Noteflight’s speed depends on the computer and the size of the score. Most of the time, for most scores, it works very fast. If you are finding it’s slow, there may be a solution for you. Please write to support@noteflight.com and send:
              - computer operating system
              - browser and version number
              - link to a slow score

              thanks!

            • Cue Notes and Optional Parts

              When writing for orchestra, several times I have an optional instrument. I feel like you should be able to highlight the entire part, then select the cue note option or have a new option (optional part), which will make the WHOLE part be cued (staff, dynamics, time signature, etc...)

              Thanks!

              • Point stems of beamed groups in the right direction

                Hmm—it'd be easier if we could post screenshots here—but I don't see a way to do that.

                Bass clef, key of Bm. Enter a dotted 8th consisting of F# below staff and A# on top line of staff. Now enter a 16th consisting of G# in top space of staff. Noteflight points the stems down; they should be up.

                      • Have a symbol for lever changes for folk harp (it looks like a daimond, same size as a note head

                        If there were a daimond-shaped symbol the size of a notehead that could be dragged onto the staff, those of us writing for lever (folk) harp could use this program. It would be easy to make, just like a number or text. Please do :-)

                          • Associate expressions/volumes with staff, not instrument

                            Possible bug: For the piano, the tool allows me to enter separate expression text for notes on the treble and bass clefs, but the last applied expression remains in effect for both staffs.

                            For example, if I want the bass clef to be played at 'ff' and the treble clef to be played at 'pp', I need to specify those expressions on each note in the staff, otherwise it will apply the last expression specified to both staffs.

                            I would expect the tool to not allow me to enter expressions for both piano staffs or actually have the expressions tied…

                              under review  ·  Joe Berkovitz responded

                              This is a tricky issue because much piano music is notated in the expectation that a dynamic will apply to both staves. It’s fair to consider this a bug, though, in that we haven’t really resolved the ambiguity in a clear way.

                            • Add the thumb symbol for cello/bass fingerings.

                              As a cellist who likes to write advanced cello music for myself and others, it is quite hard to have the correct fingerings written in without the thumb symbol. It is important to have this symbol since thumb position fingerings can be EXTREMELY intricate, and I'm sure that advanced bassists have the same problem.

                              • I wish they would take into concideration the other sterings besides just the e string when transitioning between notation and sheet music.

                                Whenever you change from sheet music to tablature the software puts all the notes on the first string instead of dispersing them throughout the strings. And when it's too low the notes just turn into unidentified note marks.

                                • eighth-rest vertical position

                                  Eighth-rests (16th, 32nds, etc) are positioned too high. The bottom of the rest should come into contact with the staff line below it, and there should be a gap between the top of the rest and the staff line above it.

                                  Also, these types of rests can currently be placed on every diatonic step. However, in music notation they are only allowed to occur on every other diatonic step (excluding when they occur off of the
                                  staff). It would be useful if invalid vertical placements are excluded when using the up/down arrow is used to position the rests.

                                  • The score dashboard is very inaccurate

                                    Could this be fixed? It is a very minor issue, but the numbers on my Score Dashboard do not match up with those of my homepage; I am sure I'm not the only one experiencing this problem.
                                    Thanks!

                                      Hello, We are eager to make sure this is working! Could you explain a little further what you are seeing? Are you saying that in your Home screen, if you count up all the favorites and comments manually, those numbers do not match the numbers in the Dashboard? Or did I misunderstand? Please feel free to write to support@noteflight.com with examples. Thanks!

                                      I write poetry, and when I was at poetry sites, I noticed that everyone there was a poet. It's like being a rock star on stage and your audience is nothing but rock stars.

                                      • allow you to press 'r' to repeat the first note of a triplet.

                                        When pressing 'r' to repeat the first note of a triplet, it glitches and adds strange rests, instead of just repeating that note on the 2nd beat of the triplet.

                                        • Create a Toggle Note Entry switch

                                          Sometimes, I just want to move stuff about without adding anything new. It's so annoying when I'm clicking here and there to select specific notes just to *move* them to different positions only to find that new notes start to turn up here and there that I didn't want.

                                          It'd only need to be a small tick box somewhere, which would be set to off by default [to avoid newcomers getting confused as to why nothing is being added to the score when they click, lol]
