High Tower Text font changes to something else on the website?

https://musescore.com/howard_c_/tchaikovsky_1812_overture, the title, composer, instrument names, tempos and stave texts are all written in High Tower Text, but it was changed to another font which looks really dumb. I wonder why this happened, and can this be fixed? Because some time ago Georgia had the same problem but now it seems to be fixed. I suppose many other fonts have the same problem as well...

Help?

Ok, I am trying to make a score with different instruments, but I realized I needed another instrument. Any idea how to add it instead on copy and pasting it to a new score? If there is a shortcut, please reply:D! If not, that should be fixed in an update. Thank you!

How do I make a stem "cross staff" on piano?

The notes I have here are, not in that order: C right below the treble clef, D on the treble clef again, G on the treble clef and another G, an octave below, still on the treble clef. I'd like this lower G to be on the bass staff and the stem to extend.

And I can't figure out how to do that. I have looked online for the best part of three hours and still cannot figure out. And no, I won't use voices. How do I do that?

How do I write an arpeggio spanning several staves (piano)?

Question is in the subject, really. Unless my English fails me _again_ and those are not staves I'm talking about.

Anyway, I have a series of 5 notes, three of which are in the bass clef and the two others in the treble clef; and they are meant to be played as an arpeggio.

I have input the scores separately on both staves, at the same beat, but I do not see how I can make the arpeggio extend from the bass clef to the treble clef, or the reverse. I have tried shortcuts which I thought were obvious (for instance, selecting the arpeggio sign and pressing Ctrl plus up or down arrow) but no luck.

How do I do this?

Repeats broken on site

A week or two ago I asked about this. When I use the Nice Keys or Touhou soundfont and upload a score with that audio, when you listen through, repeats don't work. Here's some examples in my scores:

https://musescore.com/mkmusic123/scores/5613610

Here's one where I uploaded with and without the soundfont.
With (Broken):

Please help! :(

Copyright infringement concern

There has been some concern about copyright infringement here lately and I thought of my song cycle which I recently embellished with photos of the poet (Emily Dickinson) that were taken in the 1860s. One such - https://musescore.com/user/29586932/scores/5611797 
I now fear the possibility that someone "owns" these. Could this be possible?
If so, that is a problem. I recently tried to get permission from  publisher to use words from an early 20th century poet and I never received a reply in 5 weeks. I would not even know how to find out who would have rights to these old photos, let alone expect a reply. 
Do you have any knowledge of this?

Importantly, I would like to know if there is a problem, will I be forewarned or is my music just yanked out like an old molar?

Almost reached 50 follower milestone

If you don't know already, I am now almost at 50 followers. Currently I have 39 followers so just 11 more and I will have reached the 50 follower mark. I had maybe like 4 followers 2 years ago. So clearly, I'm doing something right. My most recent score called The Storm just brought me 2 more followers. I suppose they followed me hoping to someday see the entire suite that I plan on The Storm being a part of. That suite I call Weather Music. Maybe I should compose another part of the suite for that 50 followers mark, upload it when I reach 50 followers, and then whenever I have finished the suite, upload it in its entirety.

If you want to listen to what I have so far of The Storm, here it is:

It just so happens that I have been getting rain for 3 days straight here in Ohio.

Update 1: 6/18/2019

Oh my goodness, 4 followers in a single day. That is a record for me, I am now at 43 followers. I don't know if the follower milestone or finishing the composition will come first. If the follower count does come first, that's fine. I'm not pushing myself to finish the 50 follower composition.

Update 2: 6/19/2019

Wow, 5 followers in 1 day. I don't think I will finish my 50 follower composition before I reach 50 followers. Often my composition process is slow, so don't be surprised if a week has passed and I still haven't finished the composition yet. I will get it done when I get it done. I emphasize quality over quantity with my compositions.

Help needed

 Hi everyone :)So I need to choose my best rondo I composed for practicing it in my summer holiday (I know sometimes composers don^t know how to play their own pieces) so I need your help. All 3 rondos are in my profile but I will leave the links here for easy access. Thanks to all the people who read this and helped me:) Love you all <3

Icons not showing up correctly

Same computer and browser that I have been using every time I report these issues(Windows 10 OS, Dell Inspiron 15 laptop, Mozilla Firefox browser).

This icon issue started several days back. But at first, it only affected me when I initially logged in and as soon as I went to another page, the icons would show up correctly(like the arrow for the upload icon, the bubble for the comment icon, and everything else).

Today, it is more permanent. No matter what page I'm on, the icons look like gibberish. Like the upload icon looks like F0RR in a little box instead of the upload icon. Only time on the site makes the icons look normal. What is causing this and when will the icons get back to normal without me having to wait to see the normal icons?

Just to clarify, the reply and like icons aren't affected and neither is the notification icon but pretty much every other icon is affected.

Add "Beat" Information in .xml import

Hello! New member here. I have been doing some research on drum beats and been using Musescore for my transcribing. For analysis, I think it'd be very useful to have information on the onset of notes in drum beats. Musescore provides this in the information in the bottom left hand corner when a note is selected, i.e "Beat: 2.5" for an eighth note played on the "and" of 2, but for some reason this information doesn't make it to the xml files I've exported. Those files include the type of note and duration among other things, but for percussive notes it's much more useful to have information of when in a measure the note starts rather than just the duration of note, as, other than some cymbals, most percussive sounds are instantaneous. Is there any workaround to get this information in the exported .xml files? I've found this page: https://musescore.org/en/node/288539
which points to an external plug-in but I've had some trouble getting that to work, and I feel like it should be simpler.
Any help or pointers in the right direction would be helpful. Thank you! 

Help needed: Can't open mscx - file (wanting to create midi)

I (and my choir) want to add "Elanor Rigby" (Version King Singers) to our program. I've been looking for a midi - file to create rehearsal- aids, found nothing!
Soooooo - I tried the pdf - converter and actually did get a mscx - file back, only I can't open it. Apparently it was created with MS 3.0

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 with MS 2.3.2  No matter what I've tried so far ,y computer refuses to update to MS 3.0

Any chance that anyone can / will / would help me and convert the mscx - file to midi?
