Brackets

    I'm bringing up this because I think it's a must.

    Brackets are very important in a score, to group similar instruments (strings, woodwinds, brass etc.)

    I think this is a primary feature request!

    Agreed *very* much. The problem, though, is to look at two things: 1) how many people have voted for this - not many; 2) do a search in the marketplace - most things are piano arrangments. Noteflight won't act without the demand, unfortunately, and not enough ensemble composers are using Noteflight. Even with their educational component - which I find really surprising that they don't add it for this reason. People are just getting by without it. *However*, Noteflight should consider the financial aspect and ADD this feature, as more serious composers might consider using it if it had this.

    This is a basic element of notation and should have been part of the original build of the software!   PLEASE!!

    I'll second (or third that).  It is also important for pieces for choir, where the SATB parts are expected to have brackets.  I was very surprised when I learned Noteflight does not support brackets, it seems like a very common use case.

    I agree with everything that is said here so far.  I, too, am quite surprised that that is not a feature in the either the paid (especially) or free versions.  As was mentioned above, brackets are super important for grouping certain sections together, or visually grouping like instruments.  This should REALLY be a feature in Noteflight, too.

    I agree, this is a must! I am using Noteflight for a project in my orchestration class at college and my professor told me I need to have the strings and winds bracketed separately. I now have to copy all of my parts into a template he made in Musescore so that it will look presentable. Come on, Noteflight!
