Subject: RE: pdf music notation to sound!!
Les, I have Noteworthy, and it doesn't offer the chance to convert to PDF. At least, my version doesn't.   I can save as a Noteworthy file or a MIDI file.

Leeneia, You are right, Noteworthy does not have an option to convert directly to pdf. However it is possible to convert Noteworthy files to pdf using a third party pdf converter. These usually install as a "printer" which you can select as an alternative to your actual printer in the print dialog box.

You can also save your Noteworthy output as an image file (in nwc2 as an enhanced metafile) from the print preview. These can be imported into a word processor where it may also be possible to save as a pdf. I use this route to create both song and tune sheets and books by importing the metafiles into Open Office Write which is capable of exporting directly as pdf.
