Inline comments are a powerful tool to easily give contextualized feedback on Flat's sheet music. They work in real-time across devices, and can even be used as simple reminders for your own work.
Here are some use cases and examples when you can use inline comments.
As a teacher:
- Give live feedback with some context to your students during an assignment
- Tag students at a precise point in the correction of an assignment
- Give your students details of the evaluation grid directly on the music score
As an individual composer/arranger:
- Add a memo to a precise point you want to edit in your sheet music or tab
- Tag your friends/collaborators you previously invited for feedback/edits in a music score
- Share your approach and give details on the way you worked on a composition or arrangement
To add an inline comment, select one or multiple notes, then click on the comment icon next to the selection. A popover will be displayed on the score where you can add your comment.
Tip: You can insert new lines in your comment by pressing Shift + Return.
Tip: When you click on a comment card, your cursor will automatically be set to the beginning the highlighted zone on the score. And when your cursor is in a highlighted zone, the associated comment will be highlighted on the side of the screen.
You can remove inline comments by resolving them. On the top of a comment, you will see a green tick button to mark the comments thread as resolved:
On public scores, you can give public comments on the scores instead of contextualized comments. If you own the score, open it by clicking on "..." next to a score on the My Library page, and choose "View".
If you are a teacher and want to add global feedback on a submission, on the review page of a student's work you have the possibility to give feedback. If you use an LMS like Google Classroom or Canvas, you can also add a comment in your LMS next to your student's submission.
