  1. Have an option to combine files, one after the other.

    When I tried to copy and paste one part of a piece I was working on in one file into another file, it didn't work as smoothly as we might want. The biggest deal was the key changes and time changes didn't paste over.

      If you select the music differently this should work: Instead of clicking inside the staff, hover so you see the grey horizontal bar above. Then click to select the first bar. Hold shift and click the last bar. Or Control-A to select all. Then when you Copy-Paste, you should be able to capture everything including time signatures.
      Let us know if that doesn’t work!

    • make it possible to notate music with no fixed meter

      It would be helpful to be able to notate choral music without a fixed meter. A surprising amount of church music has no meter designation--chant, historic hymn tunes (Rendez a Dieu, for example), etc. To prepare some of those things for my choir, I have to first choose a meter for each measure, which is not only a chore but tends to 'strait-jacket; the music.

        You can hide the time signature and get the effect of un-metered music by choosing a time signature value that works for you. For example, you could make one measure 5/4 time and another measure 23/4 time and hide the time signatures. See: https://www.noteflight.com/guide#action-changeTimeSignature

        We don’t offer the option of truly un-metered music, which I think is what you’re asking – there has to be a time signature even if it’s not visible. But the end-result can be the same.

      • Change the way the slur is being changed

        When I added in a slur to one of my notes it didn't play as a slur

        • Suport notating a lead sheet with to show AABA sections. Most jazz songs have "A" part twice, then "B" part, then "A" again

          Fake Books always show within a 32 bar lead sheet, where the "A" part starts, where the second "A" part beings, where the "B" part is (the "head") and where the 3rd "A" part begins. This would be very helpful to have available. The closest thing in Noteflight are the rehearsal marks. The leadsheet section letters should be in boxes similar to the rehearsal marks.

            The top menu needs to clearly show how to create a new score line. I'm new to Noteflight and there appears to be no menu item that enables a new score line to be created.

            • Palm mute for every guitar

              Currently, you are only able to use the palm mute feature on the clean, distortion, and overdriven guitar. In reality, you can palm mute any guitar and specifically the acoustic, classical, lead, and steel string guitar.

                We believe palm mute is now functioning the same on all guitars. If you notice specific guitars where it is not working, please let us know, including links to scores with specific measure numbers.

                Thank you!

                • fix the search engine

                  The search engine used to work for songs with more than one word, but now, when used, if the title of the song you're looking for has a common word like "You" in it, you're screwed! It shows every song with that word in it's title.
                  Please change it back so it only shows song with ALL of your search keywords in it! I can't find music anymore!

                    • There is a slight problem with the instruments/part names bar at the left side of the screen (strip view).

                      I have been a proud Noteflight member for about 3 years now, and just recently got my Premium Membership. With the major Noteflight update about a year back, there is a bar at the left of the page that shows the clef, key signature, and time signature. Helpful, right? Now, however, instead of just showing the clef, etc., it takes the first two measures of the score, and places them, permanently, at the left side of the screen. This is very annoying, as it makes it hard to see much of any score at a time. I have even tried…

                        Thanks for sharing this! It is odd because I am not seeing that. Here is a short video showing how it should work: the left margin is not any larger than normal, and the music to the left of the clef becomes grey but it is not the first two measures. https://www.useloom.com/share/d91dc9b5747341dbb2f67a5d7a78f9c5

                        Could you please write to support@noteflight.com with more info about this, including the score link and the browser you’re using?

                      • Shift notes and symbols horizontally

                        At the moment, we can shift notes and symbols vertically, but what if we wanted to swap the order of two notes, or move a rest to a different position? In order to do this we'd need to be able to move notes and rests horizonally as well.

                        Also when I extend the duration of a note (changing it from a quaver to a crotchet) If the measure is already full, it simply deletes the remaining notes instead of shifting them along to the next measure.

                        I think the app should at least ask what I want to do with…

                          You can do this in two ways: 1) by selecting a range of notes and dragging horizontally, 2) select a range of notes, do a Cut, then select the new start point of the range, and do a Paste.

                                    The day this idea was posted, the CCC was shut down. In the past few months, a user named Mason had been trolling various threads, and every time he was banned he'd make a new account. To counteract this, an oligarchical "Council" was formed among the forum-goers that would keep track of who was Mason, who wasn't, and who might be. This "Council" also intimidated newcomers, due to the fact everyone was under suspicion of being another alt for Mason. Eventually, the NF staff had enough and shut down the CCC, and it's unknown right now if it'll be permanent…

                                    • Include the repeat measure symbol; a forward slash with a dot above and below. Thx!

                                      This symbol is extensively used in studio charts, esp handy for drummers who must repeat the same beat for several measures. This would reduce the chart size to a convenient 1 or 2 pages

                                        • Blank Measures

                                          Be able to print staff paper with blank measures (no rests) for students to have for written assignments before they use noteflight.
