This has annoyed me greatly. For those of us (like me) who aren't as talented at getting around this issue as others, this causes a lot of restriction on the way our music sounds.
We have overhauled our Search option! Read all about it here: https://notes.noteflight.com/noteflight-improves-search-features/
Note: we have not yet implemented all of the ideas listed here, but many of them are still in our future plans. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, enjoy the much-improved search functionality!
Sometimes, I really want to see how other musicians are composing music for certain sets of instruments or certain solo instruments. With the current search settings, we cannot choose to search for a score based on the instruments that are being used.
Please consider adding a search option that allows us to find scores based upon the specific instruments that are being used.
We agree. However, an easy way to achieve templates in Crescendo today is for you to create your own template scores and put them in a Collection called “templates”. When you want a new score, open one of these template scores and choose File > Save A Copy.

That is an excellent and instant solution, but in the long run, a more sophisticated solution would be preferred. Having the option to create and save custom templates, or to build templates before going into the music editor itself, would improve the quality and of competence of noteflight.
