No it's not,

You will have to use a third party program like cutepdf to make the pdf files. A good workaround is to get whoever needs your files to use finale notepad for your files. They print off just like you want them from finale. It's what I use fr my studenst at my school.

Another shortcut is...go to : File > Print > Setup >....change to Acrobat Distiller. That will save your work as PDF. Then, u can print it. :D

Yes!
You could say that NotePad is a free "Finale Reader" for .MUS files, similar to the Adobe Reader for .PDF files.

NotePad gives an extra advantage that you don't get with .PDF files and Adobe reader:
NotePad can play the music while a vertical line scrolls through the notes.
