  1. make forte piano (fp, fz, or sffz) and bell tones (fz) affect the sound quality.

    i love bell tone like dynamics, and my favorite and bestest strength of music is dynamics.
    it would be awesome if those dynamics weren't stagnant.

    • Allow you to hide tuplet barring.

      It would be nice if you have a long section of triplets (or quintuplets or whatever) to be able to hide all the bars of "|----3----|" after the first group.

      • support smarter MIDI import

        Currently it only allows splitting by track or channel, with no ability to split by pitch range, nor any ability to specify a key signature (which I tried to set after importing, but the damage with the accidentals was already done apparently).

        • Noteflight Profile

          With the profile information box right now we are able to post links to Facebook and Twitter and then also write about ourselves below that. What if in the area where you write about yourself you could do all of the same actions as in comments on scores? Things such as bold lettering and hyperlinks. For artists with websites it would be beneficial to have that ability so that 1) a link to their site stands out, and 2) so that whomever is selecting the link can just click it instead of having to copy, open a new tab, and…

          • Recommending feature.

            Noteflight is a great website for composers, arrangers and music learners. It is very helpful and a great way to enhance in your musical knowledge. There are still some things we composers and arrangers would like for it, but overall it is great!
            I would like it if there was a recommending feature where every Noteflighter member (crescendo and noncrescendo) had a recommend Noteflight codes on their home page.
            They would recommend Noteflight to other people who have an interest in music, and give them one of the codes. If people do create an account they type in the code…

            • More Instrument SECTIONS instead of just strings sections.

              It'd be nice to have the concert sound but when you're only allowed to put 1 trombone, 1 trumpet, etc. it gets kinda frustrating... So having maybe brass and woodwind sections as well as the strings (which I hugely appreciate, thank you) would be nice. Just whenever you get around to it, thanks.

              • Custom playlists - "Noteflight Radio"

                That way, I would get to do whatever I am doing and listen to music at the same time, and I wont have to keep on clicking to the next song. It will all be playing for you. And maybe, if you dont want to hear that song from the playlist, you can just press a button that says "skip."

                Also I think you should be able to make them a public playlist or a private one, and people can favorite it too.
                What do you think??

                  it is really annoying to have a lot of versions. I want to delete some previous ones but I can't.

                  • Custom Articulation / Beam Placement

                    Please allow for accents to be placed above the staff, regardless of whether the stem is facing up or down. It is very unusual seeing accents below the staff! Thank you!

                    • Change the way time/key signature is applied

                      Who wants just a single measure of 3/4 in a 4/4 piece or a single A major section in an E minor piece? Well not a lot of people, that's the point. Usually, when people make a time signature or key signature change they want that change to be permanent.

                      It would be better if whenever you selected a measure and changed the time/key signature, that change applied to the rest of the piece instead of just that measure. In other words, you don't have to deselect the whole piece to apply a time signature or key signature change to…

                        • allow a new score playes the imported midi dynamics note velocity !

                          In other words, now Noteflight do not keep midi's dynamic velocity. It plays without dynamics.
                          I could write on Noteflight the expression texts: piano or forte, or crescendo, etc, but when the midi file includes the dynamics, these dynamics are the best.
                          Music on noteflight would sound more humanised.
                          Thank you !

                                  • Allow Stick Notation

                                    I'm a teacher of K-5, and I often use stick notation prior to notation on the staff. Several of my presentations involve rhythm via stick notation, then I add solfege syllables under the stick notation, then move this complete package onto the staff. I need to be able to display rhythmic values without the staff. Is this possible?

                                    • An Idea for Noteflight Collaborations

                                      I have copy-pasted this from a thread I have made in the Using Noteflight Forum (http://www.noteflight.com/discussions/6244):

                                      "I have a suggestion for Noteflight about... well, collaborations, scores that can be edited by multiple people, whether it be public and is able to be edited by all members or by being shared with a few specific people privately. I WOULD put this directly in Feedback, but I want to get a few voices here, first.

                                      This is what bothers me about collaborations: someone else's part can be edited or deleted by another person at any time. Not everyone can be…

                                        comment 2013: It’s an interesting idea. We’re looking at a bunch of related changes to how sharing works and we’ll consider this suggestion.

                                        However the idea of users “owning” a part is somewhat complicated to track across edits that can cause a part to move around and it’s a fairly big change. My bias is that it’s probably best to stick with Share with Individuals and limit the group to a bunch of people where there is some mutual trust.

                                        Usually on huge websites like Noteflight, there is a quality count. For example, on the Hereos community website, it is red stars. The way "Red Stars" are warded varies from website to website. However, this is what I think the best way is:
                                        , and I sincerely hope it is added to Noteflight.

                                        he system requires active moderators, but it works really well. Basically, moderators directly give out QP to specific posts that are very good. For example, if somebody on NF made a thread that detailed all the possible and normal ranges of all orchestral instruments, then a mod…

                                        • Composer Chat

                                          I propose that you can have a "chatroom" with multiple composers that you can chat in while you work on a composition. Ideally this would target when you are doing a collaboration that way you can talk to each other about what to add and who should handle what part in real time.
