      I'm sorry it's taking so long - we are super busy with a big new project so some of our important editor projects are taking longer than usual. Don't give up on us!

      AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

      Yes it will! It is actually on our "short list" but we are building some other big stuff, beyond the editor, that is slowing us down on editor stuff. But don't despair, this will be ready before long!

      AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

      We are sorry not to have provided a fuller reply! We marked this "Under review" which was our way of saying that we are discussing it - and indeed we have been actively discussing it in the last few months, because we know how important it is to our users like you. The decision-making process for new features is very tricky and involves balancing a lot of factors. Sometimes a very needed and desirable feature like this is very complicated for our software developers to build, or involves redesigning or altering other features that many users already depend on. So, that's a long way of saying that although we probably won't have this feature ready within the next few months, we have not forgotten about it! We sincerely hope you'll stick with us, and we truly value your feedback.

        Hi all,

        Are you finding that our editor is working better for you? What are some pain points that are still happening for you? We know that with very large scores, editing can still be slow.

        Thanks!

        AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

        Thanks for your thoughts! We do that deliberately, in case you want to leave it open to grab tools easily. But I see the downside for sure too. If you reduce the zoom a bit, it won't overlap your score.

        AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

        Albert, please write to support@noteflight.com with the specific browser and operating system, and a link to a typical score where this is happening, so we can test it for you. With extremely large scores it can be a little slower, but should be working for you!

        AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

        We have continued to make improvements in the design and performance our HTML5 editor. Always make sure you are using the most recent version of your browser, and keep us posted if you continue to see problems!

        AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

        Hey everyone! Our work on improving the new editor continues. Please take a look at this list of recent updates. This process is not over by any means - we are still working on things and will continue to do so. This is just the latest progress. https://notes.noteflight.com/noteflight-score-editor-improves/

        AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

        Thanks for the comments! Keep 'em coming. We are working on this every day.

        Those of you who said the background was too bright - are you enjoying the new darker look?

        More soon.

        AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

        Thanks for all the great comments so far! A quick reply for now, to "The Famous": we do have the octave-down treble clef with the "8" which is standard for tenor voices. But we don't offer the others because they are not standard notation. They are useful in some cases, but most players are not used to seeing them and may miss them. That doesn't mean we shouldn't offer them in the long run, because they are used sometimes and we want our users to have lots of options. But it means this isn't a high-priority item.

        You can use 8va/8vb lines in the meantime - or for certain instruments the transposition is just understood - for example piccolo, double bass, glockenspiel, etc.

          We know it has been a while. We're working on a larger review of our playback sounds and hope to include this. Stay tuned for that and other big things on the way!

          AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

          Hi Brian, thank you for your note. I want to be sure I understand your specific need here: if you are writing for a live performance, Noteflight will work just fine: you can certainly write a decrescendo or crescendo and the performers will have the correct notation for the effect you need.
          The only limitation here is in Noteflight's MIDI playback sounds. If you are opening Noteflight and pressing play during the showcase, that is when you would have the problem with this feature.

          Have I understood correctly? Please let us know! Thank you.

            Thanks! We will take a look at this as part of the guitar frames.

              Actually you can do this! You can double-click on a measure number to change it, and the measures after that will flow from there. See https://www.noteflight.com/guide#renumberMeasures

                Hi Anna, this seems to be working ok when I test it! I replied on our support channel - please let me know if you don't find the solution soon.

                  Noteflight always had two options - Free or "Crescendo" (now called Premium).

                  AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

                  Thanks for the catch - sorry about that! Fixed.

                  AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

                  We renamed it "Premium" so it's no longer called "Crescendo". Just go to our main site and click "Sign up" in the top panel!

                  AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

                  If you use NF 3.0, your score is automatically backed up to your hard drive as you work, and is then saved to the cloud when you reconnect with the internet. So you could work that way, though it is not risk free: there are some features that may not work, and there is a small chance that if your computer had to restart your edits could be lost (though this is not a big risk). Sorry not to give a more conclusive answer - the dev team could answer more conclusively but I wanted to get back to you quickly.

                      I'm sorry for the confusion! I hate to ask, but if you don't mind it would be great if you could re-post your idea. I think it's a valuable idea and would love to have it "on the books" again now that I understand it better.

                      And/or, there is another related idea here - does this come close?

                        Fredrik thank you for your comment! As I understand it, because we are not an iOS app, but rather a website on the mobile browser, things work differently than for a "real" app. Until recently, the OS would not allow us to export files. However I have heard recently that the new iOS may allow this, and we are looking into it. We agree - it is a serious limitation!

                              We don't have any news on this at the moment. We have not forgotten it - we are just busy building some big new features and our focus is there for the moment.

                                We already offer selection of any range of notes, via touch. To select multiple notes in an iPad:

                                1. Tap the first note (the cursor will start to blink)
                                2. Put one finger on the last note of the range of notes you want to select (don’t release it!)
                                3. Tap back on the first note you selected.

                                See here for a demonstration: https://youtu.be/L9YQ3CeTQ7Q

                                Best,
                                — Noteflight Team

                                www.noteflight.com

                                That said, the idea of a command field is interesting too, and we will give it full consideration.

                                  Thank you. We have redesigned our Profile page - it doesn't do this exactly yet, but let us know what you think!

                                    For now you will need to rely on selecting and de-selecting the measures you need, or may need. To de-select, just click into white space. Hope that helps for now!

                                      Update: you can now indent the first system. The option is under Score > Settings. See: https://www.noteflight.com/guide#documentLayoutSize

                                      You also need indentation for any other system, correct?

                                        Update: we already allow users to follow each other. That is not exactly a "Friend" system like Facebook but it's similar.

                                        So, we think the main aspect of this feature is the inbox and messaging - that is something we don't have.

                                        Therefore, I am going to merge this with this idea: http://feedback.noteflight.com/forums/4962-tell-us-your-thoughts/suggestions/2155805-sending-messages

                                        Thanks everyone!

                                          Oh I see... but that is not standard - normally punctuation comes before the extender line. Could you share examples where that's not the case?

                                          What do you mean about adding punctuation at the end of a line?

                                            Currently this is not possible but it is something we hope to add in the future!
