There is no need to convert notebook files to TeX in order to translate them into postscript and finally to PDF format. I had the same problem a couple of months ago and discovered that it is possible to "print" the notebook to a .ps file and convert it to PDF via distiller. There is no need to actually have a PostScript printer. The steps are: (1) Install a PS printer driver (e.g. HP LaserJet 5 PS). (2) If you would like to have the PDF file look exactly as your notebook, you would have to change "Format/Printing Style Environment" to "Working". (3) Print the notebook with the PS driver and select "Print to file" (specify a file name.) (4) The generated file will have .prn extension. That doesn't matter. (5) Manually change the file extension to .ps (6) Use a distiller to convert the file to PDF format. (*) If the results are not the expected, do not pay attention to step 2. Hope you make good PDFs. Please send any comments if the method worked fine. -- Roddy Rivas-Llosa M., MBA Professor of Economics, Finance and Computing Science.
