When I make map printing using an WMPS and WMS services, the printing only shows the image from the WMS and does not represent the WMPS vectors.
The same occurs when using a WMTS service instead of a WMS.
In this example I'm using normal printing, but the same happens when I use the print server with phamtomjs.
in other case if I print in EPSG: 3857 the printout is correct, but if the coordinate system changes (in this case EPSG: 3763) it only prints the image, and again no vectors.

Any errors in Portal log or in PhantomJS log (C:\Windows\Temp\portal-phantom-printer)?
I have been able to print WMPS data with other EPSG than 3857 but I haven't tried with 3763 as I don't have reasonable data. But I will look for some.

Ok, works fine for me with some public WMS and dummy WMPS data...
Just out of curiosity - have you tried different scale levels?

I tried printing with several scales and the problem stays the same.
I was changing the DPI on the web.config print server to do some tests and I checked that I could never print vectors with 300 DPI and sometimes did not print anything at all, at150 DPI +/- in every 5 prints, one was correct.
I send in the attached zip file the images and logs of the printings for analysis.
I used a custom tamplate and the default one in the print server installation.

The log doesn't contain anything suspicious. I've tried again with the external Print Service, 300 DPI, my custom teplate and still the WMPS printed out fine. Some more hints:

The print service is configured with recommended specifications, with PhamtomJS as the print engine and GraphicsMagick for making PDFs.
The portal logs are also active but no errors are transcribed regarding the printout.
Attached is a ZIP file with all the logs, images, and settings used by the portal and its print server. We can see from the svc files that the map is generated correctly but then the png file with that information is not generated.
I should mention that the coordinate system used is the EPSG3857 with the nominal mapscale at 1.2K so we can print detail (also in the zip file).

Do you get the print if you switch the layers to PNG instead of SVG? I can print fine the SVG content but I've seen cases where SVG layer caused that no data from WMPS was printed. I can't say why at this moment since I could not reproduce that.

You're right, when we change the source data from SVG to PNG, the map appears printed, even though the defined styles are not exactly the same.
The problem is that the information on the map is vector so we can query the data of each feature.
How can we then solve this question?

What version of PhantomJS are you using? I'm running 2.1.1 (the latest one).
Also what version of Geospatial SW do you have installed. Do you have any unofficial hotfixes?
