Add customization in ACS print screen settings

We would like to see the ACS client Print Screen settings to have the option to select fonts, manipulate fonts (bold, underline, etc), and set LPI and CPI, like was available in Client Access for Windows.
Ideally, I would like to see 2 options: 1) "Automatic" which would be how ACS print screen currently works by fitting to the page size and orientation selected; and 2) "Customize" which would allow you to adjust the print screen options like the old Client Access for Windows did.

Use Case:

Many of our users print screens from ACS, then use the print to mark-up. In the old Client Access for Windows, they could control how it printed on the page, providing additional room between lines and columns of information to write the needed information. With the new ACS, they cannot adjust the line and character spacing to provide enough room to mark-up the printed page.
Adding the option for manual settings adjustments would allow each user to print the page as needed for their situation.
