  1. General text boxes

    The placement of text is very limited. A text box feature where text could be moved anywhere on the page (i.e. next to the title, under the part names) would be niiiiccceeeeeeeee

    • Add swing 16ths

      I'm working on an arrangement that would really benefit from the addition of swing 16ths. Any way this could become a feature?

      • Allow sharing with specific users, not just everyone or nobody

        I'd like to see is the ability to share a score with specific users, rather than having to choose between sharing with everyone or nobody.

        • export to gif -tiff - jpg

          It would be nice to be able to export as a graphic-file, like giff, tiff or jpg. Then we can import our score or a part of it in a text editor like word. This is really helpful for educational purposes.

          • Allow continuous chord entering (like for lyrics)

            Sometimes you just enter the notes and then you want to go back and add all the chords. It would be VERY nice if pressing space (like in lyrics editing mode) or TAB would move the editing to the chord above the next note. This way you can enter all the chords without needing to grab the mouse click the next note and press K.

            • Make scores fit correctly on A4 PDF/Printouts

              I'd love to see my scores appear on the entire page of A4 PDFs and printouts, as opposed to the current top & left 70%. Something about the margins ain't right, and I can't tweak it.

                How about some way to let users indicate to each other what scores they find most interesting?

                  We’ve just added a notion of favorite scores in 1.3, which is our implementation of ranking (or as close to ranking as we want to be right now).

                  • Print Landscape

                    for organ music, generally landscape is preferable.

                      We now support Landscape orientation as well as a range of paper sizes. Use the new Page Setup command on the File menu to lay your score out in different ways.

                    • How about a pedal option?

                      I would like a pedal option, like the one for the piano. To make the sound better and a little more realistic...

                      • Make playback actually follow crescendos and decrescendos

                        When I add crescendos and decrescendos onto a score, then the dynamics sound too chunky. If you put a dynamic marking after the cresc. or dim. then the playback should be able to gradually change from one to the other.

                          Noteflight now performs crescendo and diminuendo line and wedge notations, as they apply to individual notes. cresc/dim within a note are not yet supported.

                        • ADD ELECTRIC GUITARS

                          Add electric guitars with different functions such as delay, sustain. distortion, flanger and others. Some of us really need it!!!!!!!!!!!!

                            Let both noteflight and cresendo members have a pipe organ and harpsichord to the list of instruments.

                            • Give users the option to number all measures in a score

                              You have recently added the option to display measure numbers at the beginning of every system, which is very nice to have. However there are those such as myself who would like the option to number every measure in the score. This would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

                                • Single and double line scores for percussion parts.

                                  Even if Noteflight does not have a library of percussion sounds available, it would still be nice to construct percussion parts on single and/or double line staves.

                                      • Have Triplets

                                        I think that note flight should have triplets because they are very common in music

                                          It would be rather neat if you could subscribe to other users' compositions or 'friend' other users to easily find their compositions and possibly send messages.
