>And I hope that composers and arrangers nowadays send their final versions of music out as PDFs

Very few publishers will take PDFs, since they almost always need to reformat the music to their own template and this is about a million times easier to do with a finale or sib file. FWIW, I know a lot of professional engravers who sigh for the days when they got simple manuscript copy from composers/arrangers, because they think that’s actually faster to set up than trying to fix all the oddities that can creep into files that are typeset by people who really don’t know what they’re doing.
