  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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).

  5. 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…

  6. Add text in tempo markings

    I wish noteflight could add tempo markings before the actual tempo. For instance, Ballad ♩=63 or Bright Swing d=132. Please add this.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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??

  11. 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?

  15. 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 !

  16. 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.

  17. put a tab on the top that tells whos clicked on your song

    I want to see whos been checking out my songs. Some people dont put comments and I want proof that more than one person whos commented has listened to my songs.

  19. Fix These Problems URGENTLY

    I believe that everyone (including myself) has been waiting far too long for some of these problems to be resolved and I am becoming quite dissatisfied with some features of Noteflight. I'll just get straight to the points and attempt to explain my best.

    Crescendos and decrescendos do not carry throughout the notes, they only change when a new note plays. So if I place a decrescendo on a a whole note so that it dissipates, it will play the same volume that it began with until that note ends/moves on to the next note, which ruins the music quite…

    Thank you so much for this. We are a tiny team and we are working constantly to improve our products. We have a backlog of hundreds of items and we often add new features. All of these are great points and they are on our list! I’m sorry not to have a quicker answer!

  20. When you copy a score make it open the copy in a new tab.

    When I'm working on my scores and I want to cut it up into different pieces or I want to copy it and work the two versions side by side, It always closes the old score (without saving that mind you, that's annoying if I hit the save a copy button by accident, because then I have to go back and redo what I just added to the score) Opening the copy in a new tab would make it easier to do this kind of work. Plus if you don't want both versions open you can just simply close the…
