Export Score / Parts to PDF bug?

MuseScore v3.0.2.20666
MacOS 10.14.3

I seem to be having a problem exporting correctly to PDF format.  I have a song I've partially ported over from a 40-year old document (just now starting to work on the percussion parts.) The score itself has been formatted to print out in 11" x 17" Landscape using "Format, Page Settings."  When I add the individual instrumentation they are formatted as 8.5" x 11" Portrait (again, Format, Page Settings).  When exporting to PDF I've noticed that:

1.  If I remove the instrumentation from MuseScore and export just the score only the export looks fine....correct size, Landscape orientation, etc.

2.  If I add the instrumentation within MuseScore (so I can edit individual parts) and select "Export Parts" I get the -individual- parts exported fine.

3.  The pdf  "Song_Name-Score_and_Parts.pdf" (which contains the score and all individual parts) shows the score in 11x17 portrait mode instead of Landscape...which cuts off part of the score.  And every individual part after it appears to be in 11x17 portrait mode with the music in the upper left hand corner.

It's got to be something that I'm doing wrong on this end but I don't know what. Can someone whack me upside the head with a clue-by-four?

"New" Group -- Genesis Games Music Team

Hello everyone,

It seems I'm now advertising another new group. (Well, technically, the group I'm about to advertise isn't "new," but nobody besides me has joined it yet at the time of this writing.) The Musescorer Enochulous has made a group called "Genesis Games Music Team" (link here: https://musescore.com/groups/1892176) and is looking for composers and/or other music department members to help him create and share music for some games he is planning on making. (As far as I can tell, right now he's working on one called ZeroBlade Run.) If you're interested in composing for a video game, I recommend you check it out.

Thanks for taking the time to read this,

"Edit Drumset" Guide

In a lot of songs I've done, I've been limited to the default drum sounds that Musescore provides. Sometimes, it just doesn't have the sound I want. When I tried to look for them in the "edit drumset" option, it was just such a hassle to experiment with every single sound before getting the right one. Today, I decided that I was tired of this and made a guide for it for everyone to use. Note that the labels I give them may not be 100% accurate, but are as close as I can get to naming the sound. The ones where I put *** are sounds I'm not sure about. It would be great if you guys could help identify them. Thanks!

Why is the word "official" in the title? Would it be any less official if it didn't have that clarification?
