Hello and welcome to the forum,

As far as i know, SFF is used to define "free form" input. It is not an output specification.

If you show some sample input and what you want for output someone should be able to help.

I suspect you can get the result you want using EDIT.
Hope this helps,

Dick is right. SFF is an input format, not an output format. Show an example of your PD input values and what you want for the corresponding output values.
