ACS Bestfit leave unprintable area on right side

Since iSeries access for Window (iAW) is EOS and IBM i Access Soultions (ACS) is used instead. Using Bestfit function, the old iAW generate printout without blank on the right side but the new ACS generate printout with blank on the right side which also make character smaller than character from iAW.
Report problem to PMR: 85979,000,856 , support-Connie said this is due to Java Print Service (JVS) and it work as designed. Connie suggest to submit RFE to change this JVS Bestfit limitation.

Use Case:

Many reports used for customer Prudential who's the owner of pmr: 85979,000,856. However, since there are many customers use this function and they cannot move on to use ACS instead of iAW which is EOS.

    The tool Greenshot used to take screen shots has excellent print options.
    For example the possibility to shrink, enlarge, rotate and center the printout.
    They are shown in the attached file.

    I would like to have the same possibilities for screen shots in ACS.
