We are excited to announce that Noteflight now supports both guitar and ukulele chord diagrams, including transpositions and extended chords. Here is how it works:
New Formatting Option
The formatting panel has a new General setting to “Show chord diagrams” that can be selected for the score and individual parts. 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 by 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, maj7, min, min7
aug, dim, aug7, dim7
7, 6, 4, 9, 2, 5

We hope you enjoy using chord diagrams on all of the amazing music you create and have created. If you have any other questions on how this new feature works, feel free to visit our Help Center, User Guide, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
