I wish Noteflight would...

Able to use jazz techniques to instruments; such as growling on trumpet and falling off the notes

I use these ALL the time in our jazz ensamble, and id like to be able to write it in with the falling notes

        I want noteflight to add a larger variety of options particularly articulation and ornaments. These details are essential for jazz composition.

        I want falls and like, growls and also swing beats to become more noticeable. Maybe Noteflight could add a "Jazz" mode to scores so we could have easy access to the jazz stuff, but not get it mixed up with the normal ones.

        I make a lot of Jazzy and Rock stuff, but a lot of Jazz features are not available for use.

        Why isn't this a thing yet? Most solos and melodies I transcribe have scoops and possibly falls. :(

        We should be able to put "fall-offs" on notes.... Jazz is music, and people will undoubtedly use Noteflight to write Jazz. Unless you would rather I purchased Sibelius....

        At the end of a phrase, instruments can't fall, the just blandly cut off. There has to be made a way for falling and scopes to be made.

        Totally agree, absolutely required. Without this it just makes it difficult having to print out the arrangements and then manually write in fall-off markings. It can't be that hard to put it in as an option. It looks like this. http://cnx.org/content/m11884/latest/Scoops.png You just need to be able to place then (like a picture) and be able to re-size.

        I agree entirely. I'm currently arranging a chart for a school stage band which requires jazz articulation, such as fall offs, and there seems to be no way to notate them. The fact that the staff don't respond to feedback until 3 years have passed is just plain lazy. I really enjoy the services noteflight provides but it would be a shame if jazz articulation is not added, which is essential to jazz and funk music, as "Anonymous" has stated

        I'd be happy for now with just an option to do falls. They are so common in this type of music.

        A VERY common notation for jazz/funk composers is scoops before the note, and falls after the note. This should be relatively simple to implement, as it's just a line that attaches to the note at either side.
