Add the note name in for you.
I wish noteflight.com has an optional feature to add the names of the notes for you. It would be extremely helpful for beginners or when assigned by a teacher. Now I have to go in and take the time to write out every note name, because we were required to use noteflight.com instead of my normal music writing software which had that option available.

We completely understand and this is important to us!
As a workaround for now, you can use Performance text: select a note, type T for the text prompt, then the note name. Not ideal but hopefully it will work for now!

I'm liking noteflight a great deal - but very frustrated that as a Teacher I cannot add note names to my scores. Having always previously used the 'standard' music notation software, I was surprised not to find the option to add note names on noteflight.
Yes to this! As a music teacher, this would help me teach beginners!! I have many students from other countries who aren't familiar with "Mary Had a Little Lamb" or "Yankee Doodle". If I want to give them music they are familiar with to start learning, I have to generate it myself. The ability to add note names would make this whole process so. much. easier!
Agree. This is a deal breaker for me. After the trial. I need this option.
I work at an international school in Shanghai with a solid amount of student turn-over and strange instrumentation, so I arrange all technique pages and compositions instead of using a method book series. I would like to see a note head that contains the pitch name.
Forte9 has this feature. I love it because it has helped a lot with my sight reading. Noteflight is as easy, perhaps easier to enter musical score. but to know what you are doing and to play along, forte9 or some program like it may be necessary.
This would be awesome for learners like me!

Absolutely agree, I just signed up and think it's a great tool, but am surprised this isn't already a feature.
Additionally the ability to choose between C/D/E.. and DO/RE/MI.

Allow solfege syllables to be added directly on the noteheads.
I just started learing piano by myself and would love to create music with note names, so that I could play what I create easier. Please consider adding this feature.

I agree. I think that it would be a good feature to include
YES!!! THAT WOULD BE GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am an elementary music educator, and this would be a very nice feature and bridge for young learners of music notation.
For learners: a setting that shows the note name as you put it in. To help remember and match the notes with their pitches. Please consider!
This is for music writers- why would you write music in the first place if you didn't know how to read the music in the first place (I knew how to read notes in the first month of piano)
I agree, was going to post same idea.
Very good for education (learning the bass clef and also the reaaaally low and high notes!) but also sanity check when doing phrases and chords in big keys (B,major, GbmMajor etc)
Okay, fair enough. I'll call them uncommon clefs.
Eddie Zhang commented
Well, those clefs ARE standard. But sometimes for me the notes with lots of ledger lines are annoying.
Okay, fine, I admit that I'm a pathetic sight-reader. Especially in bass clef.
So for me, it would be really helpful if I could see the name of each note as I place it or select it.
That means if I'm hovering over the bottom line of the treble clef, about to place a note, then an "E" would appear somewhere on screen, maybe near the note or at the bottom of the screen. Likewise whenever I select an existing note.
When I'm constructing complicated chords, or working in keys with lots of sharps/flats, it would save me time to just see the note name.
And what about those weird, non-standard clefs, eh? Nobody knows the notes on those things.
All you Julliard grads can roll your eyes, but some of us, mostly guitar players, would benefit from this.
