Guys, I Need Help...If Possible!

So, my friend plays the piano extremely fast, and I have to try to keep up with him on my flute. He also plays by ear and a bunch of extra notes, which I don't. If I had the sheet music, I could keep up with his speed, but I have to try to follow his hands and figure out what notes he is hitting. Is there any way that I can train myself to play by ear or solve this problem so other way?

Score Not Uploading Correctly

 
I have tried to get this score to upload for about 5 days now; I really don't know what else to do

It either stays on "Score is being processed. It will automatically be displayed when finished." or will be put up without playback. I have re-uploaded several times and even re-did the score from scratch. Any help would be appreciated even if I'm overlooking something obvious.

Who views my work before I do?

I could not help but notice that whenever I upload something at least one person (as many as 4) "view" it before I do. I'd like to think its the folks at Mariinsky or the Amsterdam Concertgebouw checking me out, but I rather think something more cynical. There are a few thousand people in this corner of the universe and I doubt it is immune to malfeasance. I'm sure the work of many MS people are stolen. I'm also NOT blaming you folks who run this place and only wish I had the tech savvy to come up with a solution. So...my work is uploaded with my name and avatar and there is a record of the date of upload, yes? Can I assume this (along with manuscript or hard copy) is some sort of protection in the event the scapegrace is discovered?
Also, I had noticed Mark Sabatella had an idea for a conduit to direct MS compositions and arrangements to performers which he put forth on this page. As yet I've seen no follow up, no doubt he is busy with Version 3 and all his teaching and video activities (quite a load for one person). I think this is essential -  as long as our work is available to charlatans we should have a conduit towards good application. MS prides itself in its score reproduction. Lets get our work in the right hands, too. We should advance his idea and do what we can to assist. Thanks.

Help: can't move staves, no way, nohow!

I'm a newbie to Musescore (downloaded Version 3.0.5.5992 today) although an experienced former PrintMusic user. 

Puzzled out most of it OK. After a couple of hours I've got a lead sheet with music, chord symbols and lyrics. 

 However, I've hit a brick wall trying to move the staves up and down a bit to pretty up the layout. So far, I've tried:

- altering all staff spacing

- altering space above one specific staff, and 

- inserting a spacer above a staff. 

The first two of these let me adjust y and hit OK, the last lets me play with a little blue arrow. But NONE of these results in any of the staves moving at all. 

What am I missing?
