I wish Noteflight would...

Create more tuplets and polyrhythms

like having a 9-tuplet grouping in 16th notes and having a 4:3 poly rhythm

        It would be awesome if on the tuplet section, there was a box like for tempo, you click on the note, type the number tuplet you want, and click insert, that would make my life a whole lot easier, also being able to make tuplets invisible like in the first movement of Beethoven's moonlight sonata.

        Actually I can't create a tuplet of 11 notes inside a quarter note in a 4/4 bar.

        Hello, I would like to write the first Chopin's Nocturne, but I can't because I need a 11:6 tuplet...

        It's true that for example, there's still not the octuplet (8), nonuplet (9) or decuplet (10)... But there's no problem with them because:
        -you can create an octuplet from a quadruplet (because 4 is a divisor of 8)
        -you can create an nonuplet from triplets (because 3 is a divisor of 9)
        -or you can create a decuplet from quintuplets (because 5 is a divisor of 10)

        But you cannot create a tuplet with prime number, because prime numbers have not divisors (except 1 and themselves).

        So the thing is that I would like to have more tuplets (11, 13...) or at least, a possibility to enter the tuplet value by keyboard.

        Thank you!!!

        Although it's simple to create a tuplet, the only way you can delete it is by highlighting that area and pressing delete, or Undo (though that might sometimes not work.) It would be a lot easier if members could just delete it by clicking on it, then pressing delete, and then leaving the area with rests. Also, tuplets cannot be hidden when having a Crescendo membership, and I wish Noteflight could have that feature.

        Will it be available in the basic version of Noteflight? That'd be really nice and it's only fair.

        Allow for more complicated tuplets such as groups of 11 and allow tuplets to be expressed as ratios.

        it would be really cool if we could customize how many beats replace how many beats in the tuplets, i. e. 5 notes in 6 beats, 7 in 3 beats, 2 in 3 beats, etc., instead of just 5 different pre-set tuplets to choose from
