PDF creation for Landscape Mode scores is not working

Choosing Download-->"PDF" on a score  that was created in Landscape mode, results in a Portrait-Mode truncated  PDF (music on the left edge is cut-off):

Note,  The Download-->"PDF including parts" function does appear to work  correctly however only for single instrument scores (e.g., the organ  score referenced above), this is not an option:

Group sheet music

I think it would be a very nice feature to have a fourth collection type: sheet music in groups.
Inside it shows you your groups if you tap one of the groups it shows all sheet music in this particular group.
I hope something like this can be one of the next implementations.

Sorry, this score is termporarily hidden - WHY?

I uploaded my score a few months ago and today i opened my profile to hear my music and i saw this on one of scores

Sorry, this score is temporarily hidden. Don’t worry, it is still available to you as a private score. We believe that this score is related to the work "XXX" from the film "YYY". We could be wrong and your score is possibly related to a different work. If you believe so, let us know about it and we will fix this issue.


I agree it is related to it, but i created it myself, i can see other people's work related to same song from the same movie, but why only my work is hidden?

Is this a bug or there is an actual reason behind it?

CCC#2 - "The Wanderer"

 CCC#2 is here!

Based on the results of the survey I sent out on Friday 7th June, it occurred to me that several of the themes which I suggested, and asked you to vote on, would in fact fit quite nicely together. Therefore, for this second competition, I have found another painting by Caspar David Friedrich, since the response for “The Watzmann” was very good. I am also going to give a genre of music (as wide as possible, but still something to go on) and a short story available in the file below.

If you would like to help judge the competition, or have any other queries, please message on Musescore, or via discord @jte#9811


Details of the competition:

- The deadline will be in 4 weeks time (Saturday 29th June)

- The genre, as chosen by the survey will be “Film Music”. This is deliberately a very wide genre in order to give the contestants freedom of creativity. There will be an award for the most original take on the task, as with the first competition. 
Obviously this theme can be interpreted to fit your desires.

- The painting (shown below) and the story are both in the google docs file. If you have any issues accessing this file, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to help.



Rules:

- Your work must be completely original/all your own work.

- Be nice when critiquing other people’s work. Constructive criticism is fine, but don’t be rude. If you do, you will be disqualified from the competition and banned from the group.

- All pieces and comments must be appropriate.

Please let me know if you’re planning on taking part. I’d like to have an idea of who might be competing.  

Thanks,
- Joe

Some SERIOUS and Clear help needed for inputting brushes in Musescore

Hello All,
I'm trying to make a backing score for Autumn In New York and if you've heard and know the song, the drum part only uses brushes in it. I've looked up videos on YouTube, I've searched it on Bing, still don't know how to do it. My Drum part has literally nothing in it, no notes or anything, so if you could please help, can we start from that and fill me in step by step.

Here's some things I'd like to suggest for the next Musescore update

1. Change the timbre of the instruments from the brass section (soundfont issue)

What I noticed, mostly from the French horns and trumpets, is that the sound of the instruments at the forte dynamic is unrealistic. The brass is made up of powerful instruments. In fact most of the brass instruments, at that dynamic, have more force and "oomph" of them so they easily stand out. When I compose pieces for orchestra with the French horns, there were moments when they would be drowned out with the rest of the orchestra to the point where I can't hear them as much as I wanted them to. Same goes with the trumpets.

2. Adjust the vibrato

You guys did a great job implementing this into the instruments that deserve it (especially for strings). However there were moments when I wanna turn down the vibrato or increase the vibrato depending on the context of what I'm composing. Maybe a separate knob for this specific function would be nice.

3. Single note dynamic change for notes with tremolo

The single note dynamic changes have been one of my all time favorite Musescore updates and I'm extremely grateful for that. However I noticed that you didn't do the same thing with the notes with the tremolo feature. That needs to change.

4. Change the soundfont for some of these articulations for some instruments
- Strings with the "harmonic" articulation
- Strings with the "snap pizzicato" articulation

5. Adjust the glissando feature so that it spans two staves at once instead of just one so us Musescore users don't have to do this manually (for piano and harp)

You don't have to change all of these suggestions. Just offering some things to keep in mind based on my concerns with the latest updates in case you are willing to continue improving your software in the future. :)
