How can I get a PDF of my score?

Version 3.0.2 of our software now has an option to save a PDF of your file.  You can use File/Export...PDF to save a PDF copy of your file.

For earlier versions of our software, it is easy to produce an Adobe PDF file version of a score prepared by Notation, but this requires using a third party tool. There are a few tools available to do this.  We have no affiliation with these companies, but these PDF tools have been recommended by Notation users.

For Windows machines:

JawsPDF Creator, available at

CutePDF, available at

PDFCreator, available at


For Mac machines:

PDFwriter for Mac, available at

(find instructions at )

These third party tools are installed on your system as a printer driver. When you use the File / Print command in Notation products (or any other application), you select the printer named "Jaws PDF Creator" (or other pdf printer driver), instead of your normal printer. You will be asked for the name and location of the PDF file that will be saved. That's all you have to do.  These PDF creators will work for any program that has document printing.
