There is no way to have certain notes play back different sounds. There is a complicated, imperfect workaround though… you could add a separate staff with just the alternate notes, and then un-check that staff in the instruments list to hide it. Then take the notes in the main part you don’t want to hear, and make them pppp, and hide the dynamic. Again, far from perfect….
Umm....Harmonics are not notated on the violin with just a diamond-shaped note-head. Natural harmonics are notated with a small circle above a note, and artificial harmonics require two note-heads: a normal note-head for the pitch stopped and a diamond-shaped note-head for the node, usually a perfect fourth higher.
Whoops. The problem with my work-around (see below) is that it apparently throws off the measure count, so you'll have to go without measure numbers entirely it appears. That's very bad. Noteflight could remedy matters by allowing us to click on a measure number anywhere, change it, and have it automatically increment from this point. That would be very easy to program.
For what it's worth, there is a work-around. Suppose you want to increase the tempo on beat two of a 3/4 measure: Convert the measure in question into two measures, a 1/4 measure and a 2/4 measure. Change the tempo at the beginning of the 2/4 measure, and make both the 1/4 and 2/4 time signatures (and the 3/4 time signature of the following measure) invisible. Also make the bar line between the 1/4 and 2/4 measure invisible.
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?
In conventional, everyday piano music anywhere you have more than one note attack simultaneously, you can roll them. It doesn't matter if the notes have different durations (making it necessary to notate them as different voices) or occur between staves. This is elementary. It's not an "idea"; it's a necessary requirement for piano music.
Re: "It's actually quite high on our list of priorities but we are so busy with new features that we just haven't gotten there yet. Please check back soon!"
Define "high". Since I joined in November 2016 I've only seen trivial "new features" implemented. This one is essential. Look: I don't really care if the "arpeggio" sounds, and I don't even care if I have to drag it down to the lower staff (or up to upper staff) manually, but it's virtually impossible to write piano music without rolls that extend from one hand to the other. How can that possibly be difficult? Send me your source code, and I'll make the change myself.
Update! We have now added the option to adjust:
- text size
SO: We have renamed this to be only related to the ability to change the font of the text, which is still not an option.
If you only needed the option to change text SIZE, you can un-vote for this and use your vote for something else.
