Final Draft Viewer 5

Final Draft Viewer 5

When you save scripts using Final Draft, the software makes an extra copy of that script that is date-and-time-stamped stored for safekeeping in another folder. FDS files, also known as Final Draft Secure Copy files, have a resemblance to the FDR [Final Draft Document] files also created using the Final Draft software, although FDS files cannot be edited. They can be opened using Final Draft 5 or later versions and Final Draft Viewer 5.03 or later versions. Final Draft Viewer though is no longer available because it was created before PDF formats became widely used. If you don’t have the Final Draft software and you need to open a script, you may install the free Demo that can open any document created by Final Draft but cannot save longer than 15 pages. The pages can be printed with a watermark. Another way for you to open the script is to request for your file to be re-sent to you in PDF format. Versions 6,7 and 8 are capable of saving Final Draft scripts as PDF.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .fdr files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .fdr. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
