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.

Can anyone give me any kind of feedback/advice/opinion on this etude i wrote for the classical guitar?

 This is my 2nd etude, i accidentally wrote the descending part of the opening scale and through a sort of inversion i did the ascending part, i found the unevenness in the structure of it every time it repeated to be interesting, so i got inspired to develop this strange idea into a cohesive melodic piece, took me all day of just being in a lunatic composing mode to complete this piece, which honestly didn't expect a full piece in one day since i am very slothful with writing music, and considering how long i have been playing guitar, my theory is kinda weak, i am not even sure what key this is in, please don't be afraid to give any harsh criticism, i accept literally anything, oh and i am especially interested in thoughts about this being a good guitar etude, because even though i wrote this for guitar, i havnt been able to play it because i am in the middle to learning other music so eventually expect to see fingerings and slur signs everywhere! 

Original Compositions

Hi, I just joined and am happy that I found a group devoted only to cellos. I have been playing cello in my schools orchestra for 3 years now and this year will be my fourth. I also play the piano and have taken private lessons for 7 years and this year will be my eighth. I am also pretty new to composing (only started 2-3 years ago). I made these songs and any critique, feedback, or suggestions, etc. on my scores are welcome. This would be greatly appreciated Thanks :)

4 2017 Original Comps

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

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.
