Anyone using Cubase in conjunction with Scoring software such as Finale or Sibelius?

I see that members are often asked to supply a Score of their works to better help critique them.
Usually this is in the format of a PDF file.
I'm sure that I will need to study the use of the Score Editor in Cubase in much more detail,
however, there seems to be a lack of options in creating a PDF file from this Editor.
I'm wondering if I am able to export the entire score to a Music XML file, for instance, and then import it into something like Finale's PrintMusic software, whether or not this would resolve my scoring problems.

Also, does anyone know if all of the MIDI attributes, like velocity, articulations, expressions are exported with the Music XML file from Cubase?
If they are, can I expect to see some of the notation symbols such as Forte, Staccato, etc. printed out in the Finale PrintMusic software?

Dan,

I can't answer the questions regarding Cubase, but here's a link to a free software that allows you to print anything to a PDF.

You print the score you do have and select this as the printer.  Easy to use.

Hi Tim,
Thanks for the reply.
I should have explained that Cubase will allow only one page (JPG) at a time to be printed, which to me is rather useless unless the song is less than 32 bars long.

In answer to your second question, only if you use expression maps

Did they remove the score editor in Cubase?  I used it quite extensively up till around SX and I could get some really fancy scores, graphic notation and everything.
