  1. Arco Basses & other Pizzicato Instruments

    I use arco very much. I would like an arco bass version, as well as pizzicato versions of the common string instruments (violin, viola, cello)

    • Removed Feature with Update.

      Why can you no longer select one line/instrument and just listen to that part? I used to always use that feature.

        I want to keep my e-mail/account, but I would change my nickname. Is it possible?

          • Changing volume levels

            It would be handy if you could change the volume levels to different instruments, so during playback you don't have to much of one instrument and not enough of anothier.

            • Add a "loop" button.

              I usually make RPG battle themes, and unfortunately they only really play twice when I put the repeats. So for those who make battle themes or want to loop a song, could you guys maybe add a loop function for a piece? (Loop start & Loop End, similar to the Repeat signs)

                We now have this! Next to the small “Play” button above each bar line, you’ll see the loop button. Pressing it loops whichever measures you currently have selected.

                Enjoy!

              • option to display timer

                A timer (with optional display) activated by 'play' and 'stop' buttons would be excellent for showing duration of score played so far and, of course, total duration once played to the end.

                  • Print with measure numbers.

                    I am writing a piece for a competition and need to submit sheet music with measure numbers for reference. I can't see how to make that happen.

                    • Allow multi-dotted notes, rather than toggling a single dot.

                      Maybe not essencial, but for completeness, and cleaner scores. Seems easy to implement...

                      • make notes play as you click through them

                        I often use the left and right arrows in Sibelius to check I have the right pitches in a melody line. When you move to the next note it plays it, so you can easily preview the note without having to go back and hit the play button each time.

                        • noteflight music to play with videos

                          trying to teach a class on scoring music for movies and having this ability would be amazing so that kids/myself could compose within noteflight and hear exactly how it syncs with the video at the same time

                                • Provide for numbering verses in lyrics

                                  I often use Noteflight to arrange hymns or other vocal music with multiple verses. Although I can simple add a digit before the first words on the line (e.g. "1.Row row row..."), there are a few problems with this:

                                  + You cannot easily insert spaces between the numbers and the text, since a space triggers the lyrics editor to move to the next note

                                  + The numbers are not aligned with each other, which makes them difficult to read (and looks unprofessional). This can be faked, after a fashion, by pasting in spaces to force the numbers into a sortof…

                                      Hello.
                                      My pc has Windows 10, operating system.
                                      When I was using the old flash Noteflight editor,
                                      was easy to put the chords above the musical notes,
                                      because I could put one chord, after this I could press the "tab" button, and after these I used the right arrow → to move the cursor one musical note or more to the right and put a new chord.
                                      Now I can't do this using hte new Noteflight editor.

                                      • make it so forum topics in the forums get bumped

                                        When forums are around for a long time, they should be bumped back to the top of the forum list when somebody comments. If Forum A stars, and everybody comments on it, then when somebody comments on forum B, I have to go 3 pages back to comment on forum A again, but forum A should just be second on the list so people continue commenting on it

                                        • Could you make it so you can make string instruments can do either arco (bow) or pizzicato (pluck)?

                                          Some parts in music for violin I like to be pizzicato, and some parts in string bass music I like to be arco. Could you change it or somethin? Thanks!
