I wish Noteflight would...

allow for the number of strings in tablature to be changed.

Some basses and bass music call for more than four strings. Some guitars and guitar music call for more than six strings. I wish Noteflight would allow you to add strings to your tabs. I'm sick of writing out tabs for a five string bass on guitar tabs because at the end, when I go print, I have an extra string that throws me off when I go to read the sheet music.

        I'd like noteflight to add a 7-string guitar option, adding a string 7 after string 6.

        THIS IS NOT RELATED TO THE SINGLE NOTE TUNING OF INSTRUMENTS

        But I wish Noteflight would implement the function of adding strings, eg adding a lower B string to a bass, making is a 5 string rather than a four for tab

        Personally, I'm a heavy metal guitarist who generally uses a seven or eight string guitar, and really wish that Noteflight would add the ability to change the number of strings on guitars. I want to be able to start to write my own pieces in tablature, while taking full advantage of the extended range of my guitars. Sadly with Noteflights tab options, it completely takes away any advantage that the added strings can give me. Is there any way something could be done about this?

        Noteflight tablatures are 4 stringed, like bass / ukele tablature , or 6 stringed like guitar.
        I need a 3 stringed tablature. Greek (and not only Greek) musical instruments are 3 stringed.

        I have this 3 stringed tab for example on Noteflight:

        https://melody.sites.noteflight.com/scores/view/c049d3757dde391083b090b39fd7e975ba02441f
        but it is not official made by Noteflight.

        here is a small list with 3 stringed musical intruments:

        Balalaika

        3-string Cigar Box Guitar

        shamisen

        Bouzouki

        Greek Baglama

        Greek Tzouras

        I think this is not difficuld to be made.
