I have gwc layer on my Geoserver.
Now i want print this layer using Geoserver print module but dont know how to do this.
When i try wms layer all works fine. But how to print gwc layer?


In cliet side i have a gxp and try to print using gxp_print plugin. My problem in that i cant set url to gwc layer.
I read this and this: so i try this url:


But geoserver return me error:

400: Requested horizontal resolution: 441.30440542890574 , best match: 
305.74811309814453 exceeds 10% threshold. Perhaps the client is configured with an 
incorrect set of scales (resolutions), or the DPI setting is off compared to the one in GWC ?

This same like in links above. So how to print gwc?


Good news. I change scales in my config.yaml file to scales what i get from gwc layer (but i get only left part of each scale). Now i try to print gwc layer but it not printing. In Geosrever log i found Bad Request: Error (status=400) while reading the image from
: Bad Request

After i change width and height to 256/256 and get my tile!
So question: why iprint plugin take tiles with HEIGHT=625 and WIDTH=458 but not with 256x256?
