ACS - Add more attributes to the Printer output displays

The Printer Output display in ACS shows a limited number of fields.

Please could you add the remaining fields.

I find that I need to see fields like form type, user defined fields and the common fields used daily are missing. I have to go back to 5250 WRKOUTQ and take option 8. This is not user friendly and when you have many spool files, it is slow to look for the data you need.

Adding the data onto the rows in Printer Output, allows us to scroll the screen to see the fields we need.
