  1. Associate expressions/volumes with staff, not instrument

    Possible bug: For the piano, the tool allows me to enter separate expression text for notes on the treble and bass clefs, but the last applied expression remains in effect for both staffs.

    For example, if I want the bass clef to be played at 'ff' and the treble clef to be played at 'pp', I need to specify those expressions on each note in the staff, otherwise it will apply the last expression specified to both staffs.

    I would expect the tool to not allow me to enter expressions for both piano staffs or actually have the expressions tied…

      under review  ·  Joe Berkovitz responded

      This is a tricky issue because much piano music is notated in the expectation that a dynamic will apply to both staves. It’s fair to consider this a bug, though, in that we haven’t really resolved the ambiguity in a clear way.

    • Add the thumb symbol for cello/bass fingerings.

      As a cellist who likes to write advanced cello music for myself and others, it is quite hard to have the correct fingerings written in without the thumb symbol. It is important to have this symbol since thumb position fingerings can be EXTREMELY intricate, and I'm sure that advanced bassists have the same problem.

      • Not apply repeat signs to all instruments

        I added another instrument to my composition, but I was disappointed to see that the repeat sign was applied from the instrument above. The other instrument had a different melody on the second repeat so I had to write down the composition twice, instead of using a repeat sign. Please fix this.

        • Allow for formatting to be included when copying and pasting sections.

          My problem: The copy and paste options in the score editor tend to ignore the formatting of what is being, copied and pasted.

          Some examples: Beaming of subdivided notes, note colors from the color menu, etc.

          My solution: Allow for formatting to be copied with the notes. (I believe that Microsoft word/excel/etc has an option like this that would be worth emulating).

          • I wish they would take into concideration the other sterings besides just the e string when transitioning between notation and sheet music.

            Whenever you change from sheet music to tablature the software puts all the notes on the first string instead of dispersing them throughout the strings. And when it's too low the notes just turn into unidentified note marks.

                • eighth-rest vertical position

                  Eighth-rests (16th, 32nds, etc) are positioned too high. The bottom of the rest should come into contact with the staff line below it, and there should be a gap between the top of the rest and the staff line above it.

                  Also, these types of rests can currently be placed on every diatonic step. However, in music notation they are only allowed to occur on every other diatonic step (excluding when they occur off of the
                  staff). It would be useful if invalid vertical placements are excluded when using the up/down arrow is used to position the rests.

                  • The score dashboard is very inaccurate

                    Could this be fixed? It is a very minor issue, but the numbers on my Score Dashboard do not match up with those of my homepage; I am sure I'm not the only one experiencing this problem.
                    Thanks!

                      Hello, We are eager to make sure this is working! Could you explain a little further what you are seeing? Are you saying that in your Home screen, if you count up all the favorites and comments manually, those numbers do not match the numbers in the Dashboard? Or did I misunderstand? Please feel free to write to support@noteflight.com with examples. Thanks!

                      • allow you to press 'r' to repeat the first note of a triplet.

                        When pressing 'r' to repeat the first note of a triplet, it glitches and adds strange rests, instead of just repeating that note on the 2nd beat of the triplet.

                        • Create a Toggle Note Entry switch

                          Sometimes, I just want to move stuff about without adding anything new. It's so annoying when I'm clicking here and there to select specific notes just to *move* them to different positions only to find that new notes start to turn up here and there that I didn't want.

                          It'd only need to be a small tick box somewhere, which would be set to off by default [to avoid newcomers getting confused as to why nothing is being added to the score when they click, lol]

                            • be smarter about which octave new notes go in

                              When using computer keyboard to enter pictures probably 50% of the time Noteflight gets it right as to which octave a note should go on but with a bit more intelligence it could be close to 90% for most music:
                              a) don't out of the range of the instrument you're writing for
                              b) assume that if there's already that pitch in the measure, it should be at the same octave
                              c) if upper voice then it should be higher than what's in lower voice (and vice versa)

                                At the moment arpeggios can't seem to span notes across different voices. If I have a single upper voice note and a single lower voice note, I cannot apply an arpeggio to the two notes.

                                  This seems to be two related things:
                                  1. On any single note, whether one voice or two, you can’t add an arpeggio. This makes sense though perhaps there are situations you’d want one?
                                  2. An arpeggio can’t extend from one voice (with at least two notes in a chord) to another voice (also with at least two notes in a chord).

                                  It seems you are commenting primarily on the second factor?

                                • Allow more variation in the denominator of the time signature

                                  In one of my pieces, i need a pickup measure to insert one note of a triplet. Sadly, there is no 1/3 time signature, and its impossible to write 1/3 as a/2^n where n is less than 7. This might not be much of problem at the beginning of scores, where a 1/4 measure can consist of 2 triplet rests and one note, but in the middle of a piece this doesn't work
                                  Triplets are used so often that they deserve their respective time signature denominators:3,9,and 27. I understand why irregular denominators are excluded, but 3 really isnt that irregular.

                                    As far as we know, numbers like 3, 9, and 27 are extremely rare in the denominator. Could you share some examples where you’ve seen this? We don’t want to rule it out but we tend to avoid non-standard notation.

                                    Thank you!

                                    • show view count without repeated views

                                      Hi, I haven't found any specification, but I guess currently the view count has some cool-down period, after which users who repeatedly view your score are counted once again. Can this be turned off? I'd like to see something like a "viewed-to-faved" ratio, which would be a useful metrics.

                                      • Allow me to paste more staves than I have selected

                                        I get the error "The clipboard contains 2 staves but the selection contains only 1 staff" a lot because I'm used to other packages where you just need to select the start of where you want to paste. It seems unnecessary - as long as there's enough staves below where the selection is it should allow me to paste. If it writes over something already there I can always undo.
