EUDC support on ACS PDF/PDT Printing

We need EUDC(GAIJI) support on ACS PDF/PDT Printing.
On PC5250 on iAW, we can print EUDC chars on PDF/PDT Printing. But ACS does not support it. We need this function to move Windows 10.

Use Case:

In Japan, EUDC(GAIJI) is usually used and should be displayed and printed .
But ACS does not support to print EUDC chars on PDF/PDT Printing.

    This is planned for our April 2020 update. A utility will be provided that will generate a font-image file based on the currently defined EUDC characters on the Windows workstation. The font-image file can be used with PDT printing. This support will be documented in GettingStarted section 9.1.40.

    The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a high priority requirement that is important to be addressed. Functionality that was present in the fat client is not yet in ACS, but since there is no support for the fat client, the functionality is needed in ACS.

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community, and has therefore reviewed your RFE.
