yea 5000 is my 100%... and 5200 is 104% which doesn't make sense to me
Any recommendations on how best to get issues looked at or help? I know what needs to get changed but not sure how the classes are structured so its hard to figure out what classes to modify.
Looking to solve this issue PHPOffice/PHPWord#957 and this issue PHPOffice/PHPWord#956 currenty

José Luis Duque Gordillo

@Progi1984 Hey, we are trying to use PHPWord in a new project but we aren't having much success. The sample is currently not working as expected. Do you have any pointers or are you already working in a hot fix? issue in question: PHPOffice/PHPWord#970

We also noticed that the columns are not working and a lot of styles aren't recognized

Robert Burnham
Does PHPOffice (specifically PHPWord and PHPExcel) support PHP 7+ ?
Does PHPWord support inline css and style using addHtml() function. i am fetching the data from database and making html template and then trying to write word docx by using addHtml but some elements are not write properly. is there any solution for this issue? Please reply.
@sahil-github probably not, you'll most likely have to inject it by modifying https://github.com/PHPOffice/PHPWord/blob/c71069022e07d768ec69a5e43e3b6f1fa4a95e84/src/PhpWord/Shared/Html.php

@phpdave Thanks for Reply.
But i noticed that span tag is not working properly inside any other tag like heading tag, paragraph tag and list tag in addHtml() case.
Below is the the code i am fetching from database after replacing template {keywords}. Even Heading tags are also not working for writing doc file. if there is any span tag inside li tag then li content is not printing in word file.

<h1><span style="text-decoration: underline;">LME Copper 3 Month Forward - 2017-01-24 06:30:00 Contract</span></h1>

<p class="MsoNormal" style="font-size: 12.16px;">Furthermore, <span style="font-size: 12.16px;">the mid-January push above a key resistance at 2210, neutralised the bearish intermediate-term trend, shifting the intermediate term outlook to neutral.</span></p>

<li>We see an upside bias for 1873; break here aims maybe up to 1900/1910.</li>
<li>But below 1841 opens risk down to <span style="font-size: 12.16px;">1811</span>.</li>

Please help me to sort out these issues.

Hi sahil like I said before you'll probably have to inject this in a raw format or modify phpword to do what you want it to do. PHPWord is not in a 1.0 release so I wouldn't expect it to work perfectly.
I really only know about the graphing functionality of phpword.
Thanks for reply.
i'll try to find some other ways to sort out this issue.
Good luck!

I'm getting an error in the created document: Illegal name character in word/document.xml. When I look there I see an &. I called htmlentities on the string before I pass into phpword and now i'm getting "Undeclare entity" and its pointing to ’. What am I getting wrong here?
Stephen Morley
Is there some proper way to get non-standard characters processed? Most of these originated from people pasting word text into my web app which then placed the data in the database. They are a serious issue as I can't even export/import the database and keep the characters intact. But many of these are messing up the constructed word document. Many went away when I htmlentities() and then converted them to 'normal' characters but there a lots more.

I am trying to pull elements out of a table, I have been able to do that for most cells but if a cell had (or has) a spell checking error or grammar error the "getText" method fails to get anything after the spell checking/grammar error. Anyone know how I can get the whole contents of the cell? I have tried setHideGrammaticalErrors and setHideSpellingErrors on the document before going through the elements and that doesn't help
disregard the above question, I was able to figure it out. Had to loop through the getElements to find all the instances of text.
Hi! I am trying to download the PHPWord master branch from github, but I only get the src directory. How can I get all the other directories. Mostly I need the samples directory.
hi. Is there any chance to use the characters < and > in a $section->addText() ?? Whenever I try this the document will not be recognized as a valid .docx document by Word and by TextMaker.
ok, solved: \PhpOffice\PhpWord\Settings\Settings::setOutputEscapingEnabled(true);

@troosan, Progi1984 is about to release PhpPresentation 1.0.0 according to https://gitter.im/PHPOffice/PHPPresentation?at=5d00f03c049bf9263c59c406. I strongly encourage you to do the same with PHPWord as it's now been 5 years since first release and the current state of the project seems stable enough to be reflected in a proper 1.0.0 version

Hi all
I'm using the dev-develop version of this library because I need "setComplexValue" method. I've seen that the generated file cannot be opened on windows. I think it's related with that method.
Any idea about it? I've tried escaping characters and so on, but at the end seems to be more related with the addition of tables on the templateProcessor
Jorge Sapena
Hi @PowerKiKi, I've been checking the document.xml, seems that somehow setComplexValue using a table element is creating a no-compliant xml. Any idea/feedback? Thanks in advance

@jorge_s_b_twitter unfortunately I cannot help you with that. I don't know much about this lib

I'm having an issue with the PHPWord library fails to open a .doc file. Is it just impossible to do this on unix? Seems like the error is related to a microsoft library for reading the fonts within a doc file.
error: https://gist.github.com/Acen/1ba81979a10b336fe548f575653ef54d
@Acen You can open an issue on PhpWord repository and add a sample file, please :)
