Since you provided the link to show us the hard time you've had on Stack
Exchange: I beg to differ. You were entering all-natural notes but
provided a key signature of b-major. Then you asked on SE why almost all
notes have natural signs in front of them.

What the folk on SE did was (1) helping you - like asking if you meant
gis instead of g, or if the piece really was in Bb or indeed C - and (2)
telling you that any music engraving software is just a tool which you
will only be able to use properly if you understand (at least roughly)
what you're doing. Which your answers on SE indicate you did not, if I
may be so bold.

So, while you should not get discouraged, you should nevertheless be
open to suggestions and criticism. This mailing list is full of
extraordinarily helpful and nice people, that's for sure, but the SE
guys were rather helpful as well. All they did in addition was
suggesting to become more familiar with musical theory, notation, and
indeed the stuff you were actually trying to transcribe.
