Probably depends on your platform.

On macintosh, this is a one step operation 

menu  file /Print 

then send to a file instead of a printer
there is a save as file item  which allows you to delect PDF if you have
acrobat ( distiller, exchange) installed.
teh step are sequenced automatically

complete notebook->Postscript->Distiller->PDF
