Try this file:
original file-2.mscz
You should be able to change the 1/8 note to a quarter as in your screen shot (or even to a dotted quarter as shown in your "corrupted file.mscz" attachment).

I fixed it by re-assigning classical guitar as the instrument because nothing was shown in the "instruments" tab on the corrupted score. MuseScore 4 seems to surreptitiously generate "parts" behind the scenes and the 8va bassa treble clef did not transfer well over to the "generated part".
