Flat for Docs
Add music notation to your documents using Flat's editor in Google Docs and Google Slides. Use Flat's web-based music notation editor to quickly create music notation or tablature for your Google Docs. This add-on is a lite version of our web-based & collaborative notation software (https://flat.io), and doesn't include all the options available in our dedicated tool. The notation inserted in your document works like a picture and doesn't have our playback included (you can still play it later, simply select the inserted image and open the add-on again). Please let us know if you have any feedback (google-docs@flat.io).

Is there a way to insert blank bars for students to manually draw in notes or key signatures once the document is printed to administer as a written test? And also to stretch an individual bar to allow the drawing of scales outside of a given time signature? Having the ability to do these things would make this add-on a lot more functional for music educators!

This is such a handy tool for taking notes in theory class. However, when adding roman numeral analysis, I can't find a way to add secondary dominants and certain chords like +6 chords. If this could be added it would be great! :)

Thanks for your feedback. These additional chords are planned to be added in the near future!

This is a great add-on for music educators to use. It is user friendly, but put a little time aside to experiment with the multiple options available. This is Google's version of Finale or Sibelius (Lite); very basic and no altering instrument sounds. Definitely using instead of cut paste in Word or hand writing from now on.

Really nice little snippet. Suggestions: to be able to hide barlines, and to have some degree of layout control like number of bars per system... Otherwise, great job!

Fantastic way to put a simple sightreading example on the projector, and more. Thanks, devs!

It appears it can't save more than 12 bars. Also, it doesn't break bars to page width, i.e. all in one line. So, I think this add-on is acceptable, if you only want a very short piece, maybe 4 or 5 bars.
