Set Wide Screen Mode (27x132) as the Default Option or (preferrably) the only option for ACS 5250 Configuration
When end-users setup their devices they don't have 20 to 40 years experience with *DS3 and *DS4 mode. They're not sure what 27x132 means.
Since is it 2022 and not 1982, it would be better to default to 27x132 for ACS 5250 Display Configurations. If it were only up to me, I would in fact remove the 24x80 option entirely as it serves no use other than to disable "wide screen mode" and makes work for Systems Admins or (in shops where there is no systems admin) one of the Developers has to go modify it when the user tries to use a wide-screen App like DSPSPLF or the myriad others (including many 3rd party and end-user/in-house Apps).
