You select and pay for 1 copy. This allows you to print the one copy only.
You can, of course, copy it yourself if you need to.
The only thing I can do after that is scan it to my music file as a jpeg file.
How do I test it from there, or is it not possible?
I have an iMac computer.

 
On Windows, you can print to a PDF printer (what we do to get a PDF from a music software). On Mac I don't know how to do this, but there is the manual which explain how to.
 
If you can print only one time, print to a PDF file, and then you can do what you want with your PDF, print it several times,

I have just tried, following the 'Manual' instructions for the Mac OSX system.
 
"The document cannot be processed because it does not include any
exploitable music data.
This PDF file has probably not been generated from a music notation software."

Henry.

That is probably a typical example of a "bitmap" .pdf. Then, the only solution is to use an OMR programme. I'm afraid PDFTM cannot do it.

I am sure you are right.
I purchased another tune and tried to download it to pfd, but it was not allowed. A .pfd was mentioned.
I am happy now I know, and will try to get an OMR to suit my iMac.
 
I came across this one for starters, but I'll keep looking to see what there is.
What do you think?

Thanks again everyone for your patience and sound advice.

I had a look at that site, and downloaded the "nutcracker medley" which is currently free. It can be printed, and also saved as a .mtd file (which can be played and reprinted).  
 
Being on Windows, I printed to PDF using two PDF creators I obtained, and tried PDFtoMusic on both. It does not work with one (Foxit Creator) , but works when using PDFCreator. I could import a page of music into HA. I understand from that that their software does not just generate bitmaps.  
 
I understood that Mac's have an built-in PDF creator; would this be a too limited version perhaps there would be more complete ones available.

Well, I can't test it as I am a Windows or Linux user. Yet, the idea of freeOMR looks very nice. I'll see whether there is a Windwo version of the programme and test it.
