    We will work on this! For now, you can add these for how the score LOOKS, even though not for playback sounds:

    Create a new instrument from an existing one that is similar (for example, create a trombone if you need bass trombone). Before closing the dialog, change the "key" to the transposition you need, or the octave (for the bass). Also change the names. The instrument will then look and behave like the instrument you need.

    Are you looking for a different music font (shapes of notes, clefs, etc), or a different text font, or both?

    AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

    Paul, that is a fair point! Just to check: you can change the zoom and overall staff size, so I'm wondering: is it the relative size text-to-staff that's the issue? It's true we don't offer that feature.

    Do you have the "concert pitch" button unchecked? If so, it should work. Please write to support@noteflight.com and send a screenshot if you continue to have trouble.

    If playback is not important, you can use this workaround: create a dashed line (Lines palette) and a Performance text item in front "15ma".

    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?

    AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

    Ok thank you. We will discuss this idea, though I don't have a timeframe I can promise. :)

    from mpowers:

    "it would only be the chord symbols that need to have the option of being locked. When I am transcribing or working on a composition, I set up the system with the chord symbols ahead of time. So when I make changes to the note's position or wish to paste a passage over a section with different chord symbols, I don't want to paste chord symbols along with the notes.

    So a switch to lock the chords would be great.

    Along the same lines, the ability to print the transposed chord symbols with all the horn parts. Chord symbols would only be entered once, but a check box to print the transposed chords symbols. Also the fonts don't kern properly for C-7 - the "-" overlaps into the C's interior, appearing to be a G7."

    Hello Trish, thank you for your comment - we will discuss this with hopes to add a feature in the near future. Feature discussions are always complex and rest on many variables so I can't immediately promise a given result, but we see the importance of this and we want to make it work for your daughter and others!

    Thank you for your comment. What are some of your favorite other softwares that do this?

    AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

    This type of automation is currently outside our plans, but we will keep it in mind in the future.

    Update: there was a bug in which upper and lower voices within a staff were not sustaining the same way - that is now fixed!

    Thank you. For now you will need to use our existing tools such as "create a system" (layout palette) and put the same number of bars in each system" and it should align pretty closely. In the future we can look at ways to refine this.

    for a value of 6 quarter notes, use a dotted whole note, which we currently allow. Of course you need to change the time signature to make room for it.

    John, this is a bug we will be fixing, but it requires some deeper "under the hood" work that takes time.

    AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

    PS Please email the following info to support@noteflight.com:

    — your username
    — all browsers you've tried, with version numbers
    — all devices/computers you have tried, including operating system(s)

    — a link to a score (if possible)
    — screenshots or screen video showing the problem (if possible)

    Thank you!

    You can already use NF on tablets, as long as they have internet access! Just go to the web browser on any device and go to www.noteflight.com and it works!

    AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

    This page is for an offline MOBILE iOS/Android APP version, not desktop/laptop. To vote for a desktop app, see: https://noteflight.uservoice.com/admin/forums/4962-tell-us-your-thoughts/suggestions/6796778-offline-downloadable-version#/comments

    AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

    Shannon, you CAN use NF on the iPad - the only difference is that it's not an app but instead is opened through the regular Safari web browser. Just open Safari and go to noteflight.com and you're set!

    AdminRobin McClellan (Admin, Noteflight) commented  · 

    Yes you can do that! NF works on mobile devices (especially Apple at this point), but not as a standalone app. Instead, just open the internet browser on your phone and go to noteflight.com!

    Then in the HTML5 editor (the one that appears on iPads and iPhones), click "perform".

    We have not added this yet, but there is now an imperfect workaround: you can create a separate part with a percussion sound that provides the count-in. Then use the Instrument panel to hide that part, so the viewer will hear it but not see it. The problem is that in the visible part, those extra measures will appear blank.

    Yes I see how the Collections option doesn't exactly address what you need. We are looking at real solutions for this!

    Partially completed: you can create bar line breaks below any staff (in the change instrument dialog).
