musescore issue getting a composition to play

apparently, now all of a sudden, I can only get my music to play if it is the default soundfont. If I use another soundfont library such as the SChristian Collins 1.471, it just processes indefinitely when I press play. I do not see a solution to this. If I can only use the default soundfont in uploads, it makes no sense to upload anything anymore. So, unless I can fix this, I won't be posting any more. So it goes.

Introduction & Transposing

in Brass

Hello.  I'm a new member of the group & a fairly inexperienced musescore user.  I've been playing the trombone for 51 years & the euphonium & baritone for 42.  @ 10 of those years professionally & 25 semi-professionally, & the rest just for fun.  I've played in many groups of different styles, but my favorites have been big band, brass quintet, & symphony orchestra.  I've also enjoyed tuba-euphonium ensembles & trombone ensembles.  Merry TubaChristmas is one of my favorite annual events.  Due to pain & wear and tear, I've recently had to put down my trombone - at least for  a while.  But I'm enjoying playing my new euphonium.  I've been arranging for big band & brass ensembles for more than 20 years.

This may be the wrong place for this question... Is there a way to transpose & print the transposition?  Thanks in advance.

Piano For Us Essemble

Hello everyone! We were recently thinking about a collaboration we could do here, on Musescore. We were thinking we could gather a bunch of musicians who play instruments other than than piano (we'll also need one pianist) to perform a sort of group piece for a chamber ensemble. We'll also need someone who has a video editor that can combine multiple solo performances and make one group video. We are still thinking about what to do with the video.   1. We're not looking for any specific skill level, you just need to have some experience.  2. We unfortunately can only take at most three players for each instrument, so we don't too many of the same one.    I think this should be a fairly fun project, and we're accepting volunteers now! Please reply to this discussion if you want to participate or if you have any questions. :)

Just finished a suite for solo cello, comments and advises are welcomed

https://musescore.com/user/6595486/scores/5826114

I started the first section as an exercise for modulation, and then decided to expand it into a dance suite. I wrote the sections in the following sequence: prelude, gigue, sarabande, allemande, and minuet.
The minuet was written yesterday during a day-long severe headache, which is a little different from the other parts. I am not sure if it sounds alright here, or I should replace it with a "normal" one.
Any comments about this suite is welcomed!

Also, I would be grateful if cellists can help me to correct the notation (many thanks to Teodor Lontos for his previous help).
And to you, I have 2 questions:
1. Above which pitch would you prefer a treble clef?
2. For a piece with changing tones, would you prefer key signatures or just mark it with the notes (as the present version does)?

Thanks and have a nice Sunday.
