We have WF server installed on Mainframe and we recently upgraded from 7704 to 7708. After the upgrade we are having an issue printing Times New Roman font with bold or italic. We found one change between versions, NLSCTRL parameter in codepage, in 7704 default setting is OFF and 7708 default is ON. Does anyone know how to change NLSCTRL from ON to OFF? This parameter can't be changed on screen(no option in Webconsole nlscfg.err), manuals say run a TSGU command but not sure about the right command. Thank you!This message has been edited.

Thank you for your reply. NLSCTRL is not there to edit. We only see parameters below CODE_PAGE(65002 Unicode(UTF-EBCDIC)) LANG(AMENGLISH) DATEOUTPUT(DEFAULT) COLLATION(CODEPAGE) and then under optional customization TSGU command(there is a text box to type the command and Run button) I think need to run a command but not sure.
If you can't type in the area where the other stuff is. Then I would try to put the NLSCTRL=OFF in the text box and the run button. If you aren't comfortable with that contact techsupport and I'm sure they can help you with this.
Thank you for using Focal Point!

Thank you Chuck. We were able to change the NLSCTRL setting to OFF but that did not resolve the issue we are having with PDF outputs, it is still printing squares when the font is "Times New Roman" and bold or italic. If anyone experienced this issue before and have a solution please help. Thanks!
jnc, Thank you for taking time to look into this issue. I also found this in the manual and we tried this in server console but returned an error(NLS configuration error). I have a case open with ibi for this issue, it's been several weeks now but haven't got a response back. Thanks again.
