FDF File Format

Forms Document (Adobe Acrobat)

FDF is a text file format used by Adobe Acrobat. FDF files are used for text files exported from .PDF files. FDF files are smaller than .PDF files because they only contain the form field data, and not the entire form. FDF files can be created by selecting “Advanced” from the Adobe Acrobat menu bar. In recent years, .FDF files have become popular in spam emails.

MIME: application/vnd.fdf

When I try to print a smartsource coupon, it tries to open in Adobe pdf, but only shows a blank page, and prints a blank page.  I've clicked off the grayscale, I've upgraded to latest Adobe and Java, and still no luck.  I've tried opening it with Nitro Pro, but it doesn't even open.  Other document converters do not support converting an fdf file, so those don't work either.  Don't even suggest contacting Smartsource, because their help desk was of no help at all.

Try "file", "print", change Printer selection to Adobe PDF, then hit "Print". This saves the file, allowing you to open it as a PDF. Then print from there.
