The glissando feature needs the following revisions:
1. Each of the seven notes in a glissando scale should be able to be set independently as flat, natural, or sharp. Currently, any glissando is essentially limited to whatever the key is - which is fine for a default setting. But a harp can play many more unusual scales than those now available with the Noteflight glissando feature. In fact, this is the defining feature of the harp that sets it apart from ANY other instrument.
2. A glissando can start at any point in a measure, but it should also be able to end at any point in any subsequent measure. Currently, a glissando can only end within the measure in which it begins, or on the first beat of the next measure. (Maybe it would help if a glissando could ignore or override rests?)
3. A glissando should be able to cross between bass clef and treble clef.
There are many other glissando nuances on harp, but these revisions would go a long way toward approximating a harp's abilities.
