Time signature change stops playback.

by design

I have a song written in 4/4 time. I wanted to change the ending 16 measures to 3/4 time. I selected the measure where the time change was to occur and selected 3/4. The measures were changed as I expected but when I try to playback notes in the changed section nothing happens. I tried playing the song from the beginning and playback stops at the time change.
I opened another song that has time changes in it and it played fine.
I tried cutting the notes from the section I wanted to be in the new time signature and changing the time for the empty measures and then pasting the notes back in. This did not fix the playback problem

Workaround No Yes

I found that if I retyped in the music and reset the coda sign then it played properly. It would not play without the coda sign. So I guess I don't fully understand how the repeats and codas work.

The score (in the 1st article) had a D.C al Code and a To Coda, but no Coda, so nothing to jump to, so it doesn't. So by design.
The score in the 2nd article does have a Coda, so it works.
I just don't quite understand what you mean by "reset the coda sign"?

Apparently when I added the time change to the measure it deleted the coda sign for that measure. Once that happened I could not get playback to happen anywhere in that section even if I tried to start it from within the section. When I realized that the coda sign was missing and replaced it then I was allowed to playback the notes in the measures.
