Add music notation to your documents using Flat's editor in Google Docs and Google Slides.

Overview
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).

Oh fun! This is a perfect fit for the occasional line of music that I wish I could drop in documents. I might even use this for a simple song project I have in mind. Things I like + It plays the pitch as you add notes + It has a playback feature as long as you are in edit mode. + Lyrics? YES!!! + Once the music is inserted in the document it behaves like a drawing, meaning you can move it about and select the kind of word wrap you want, or resize it. + Tempo mark and measure numbering are default features. + You can go back and edit after inserting + Notation beyond notes and rhythms includes articulation, ornaments, dynamics, and text tools for lyrics, directions, and chords. + You can even add second voices. And a third? Limitations - No pop ups on buttons. I guess we are expected to know what the buttons are for, which likely any musician who has ever used any score-writing software can figure out. - Cannot copy scores from one doc to another. Attempting to do so yields a blank drawing. Sad. - No playback in the doc. That would just be a really cool bonus. I'm sure I'll be using this add-on.

I really like it but I ran into a thing where it dose not show the variation of notes on the top.

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!

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! :)

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.

The idea is stellar. The interface adding and subtracting measures is clumsy. Also, there is no playback once you insert. If you could have playback IN THE SLIDE, you would have a truly ground breaking product.

Could you please add a way to make blank ones with nothing, like I can do with the one I used to use.

Even in its infancy this concept is awesome!

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