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.1 vote
We will consult notation / engraving rules.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with examples. Thanks!
I write poetry, and when I was at poetry sites, I noticed that everyone there was a poet. It's like being a rock star on stage and your audience is nothing but rock stars.

Great thoughts! We agree and this is something we’re thinking actively about.
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.1 vote
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]1 vote
when i put in a rest sign by accident, i cant find a delete button or something to get rid of it ,so then i have to start all over again.1 vote
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)1 vote
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.1 vote
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?
HI, my students are having copy paste issues. When the go to paste something, it pastes a piece of music they were working on a month ago1 vote
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.1 vote
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.
This is interesting! Could you tell us a bit more about how this process would work, step by step? Currently you can enter notes one by one (https://www.noteflight.com/guide#addNotes), or in real time via our transcription tool (https://www.noteflight.com/guide#midiTranscription). That can happen in TAB notation. Does that help provide some of what you need? Thank you!
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.1 vote
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.1 vote
Thank you! We know about this limitation and hope to address it in future updates.
I can barely get anything done due to some of the lag!!1 vote
We are so sorry to hear this is happening! We have found that Chrome browser works the best – if you are using another browser, could you try the latest version of Chrome?
If that doesn’t help, please write to email@example.com and let us know the browsers you have tried, and the link to a score where this is happening.
I wish there was a feature that would start a section of notes at zero volume and then slowly get louder like an opposite fading. I've tried certain ways to mimic this but it doesn't work. I don't know if there is a way to do this but I can' find it1 vote
Maybe I am crazy, but I can't seem to get this to do a mid bar repeat. So, if someone can direct me, that'd be rad, otherwise, please add this feature!1 vote
For larger school districts, it would be great to have a "district" site, have school groups within that site, and then building/teacher created groups within each school. This would facilitate cross district collaboration. It would also allow a student to start a portfolio in elementary school and carry it with them to middle and high school just by reassigning their group memberships.1 vote
Interesting idea! We will discuss it.
Sometimes we have a simple question, and when we get an answer, there is no point to continue a thread. Also, if you created a thread that nobody has commented on, it would be obvious to close it. So please add this option for more easier usage of the forums.1 vote
I would like to have a printed copy of a student's score with the comments printed in order that I may evaluate both the composition and the comments that students are making on each other's work.
A hard copy seems the most efficient and effective way to do this rather than online.
We like this idea a lot! We will discuss it though it will be a while as we have a lot of urgent projects on deck right now. Thank you!
- Don't see your idea?
