In the middle section of Symphony No 5 by Beethoven, I see some cross staff beams (marked in red):

Excerpt of Beethoven's Symphony No 5 with some cross staff beams circled

Can you please tell me how to write them in Noteflight?

Noteflight doesn't offer cross-staff beaming. There are several requests for this on their user support forum

  • Why are the Noteflight developers not adding this feature now?

    @Vighnesh Noteflight offers a lightweight in-browser option for simple notation tasks, but it isn’t a fully-featured engraving solution; it’s not meant to be. If you don’t have a machine on which you have the rights to install software, then maybe that’s the problem you need to solve first. Commented Aug 27, 2023 at 18:03

    @Vighnesh Try Soundslice, which is web-based (not requiring software installation) and supports cross-staff beaming. Commented Jan 18 at 14:20

    @Vighnesh The site does indeed work. I just tried it myself. Check your Internet connection? Commented Mar 6 at 18:39
