Noteflight supports chord frames for both guitar chords and ukulele chords and will automatically add the frame to chord symbols. Here is how it works:
The formatting panel has a General setting to “Show chord diagrams” that can be selected for the score and individual parts (for Premium members). By default, all new scores created from a template that includes guitar or ukulele will automatically show chord diagrams for each new chord symbol that is added to the score. You can select and deselect this feature at any point from the formatting panel to add or remove the chord diagrams from scores.
Once you select “Show chord diagrams” the scores that once looked like this:
will now look like this:
You can select the diagram and adjust the position with the arrow keys or dragging with your mouse.
Switching From Guitar to Ukulele
The Parts panel has the option on each part to show guitar or ukulele chords. You can also easily switch between the two options.
Noteflight supports a wide range of chords in various qualities and extensions. Diagrams will automatically populate for recognized chord names. Start by typing the capital letter of the chord name (A, Ab, G#), then you can add text for various qualities and extensions, such as:
maj, maj 7, min, min 7
aug, dim, aug 7, dim 7
7, 6, 4, 9, 2, 5
