PHPDocX v 3.1 release details
The main changes in version 3.1 are summarized as follows:
o It is now possible to insert arbitrary content within a paragraph with the updated “addText” method:
o multiple runs of text with diverse formatting options (color, bold, size, …)
o inline or floating images and charts that may be carefully positioned thanks to the new vertical and horizontal offset parameters
o page numbers and current date
o footnotes and endnotes
o line breaks and column breaks
o links and bookmarks
o inline HTML content
o In general the updated “addText” method accepts any inline WordML fragment. This will make trivial to insert new elements in paragraphs as they are integrated in PHPDocX (we have already programmed the possibility to integrate form elements and structured document tags for version 3.2 which will be launched by the end of next month).
o We have greatly improved the automatic generation of the table of Contents via the “addTableContents” method. You can now:
o request to automatically update the TOC upon the first opening of the document (the user will be automatically prompted to update fields in the Word document)
o limit the TOC levels that should be shown (the default value is all)
o import the TOC formatting from an existing Word document
o The “addTemplateImage” has now more configuration options so it is no longer necessary to include a placeholder image with the exact size and dpi in the PHPDocX Word template. Moreover you can now use the same generic placeholder image for the whole document simplifying considerably the process.
o The logging framework has been updated to the latest stable version of log4php.
o You may now use an external script to transform DOCX into PDF (or .doc, .rtf, .html and .odf) using TransformDocAdv.inc class. This script fixes the problems related to runnig system commands using Apache or any other not CGI/FastCGI web server.
Besides these improvements, PHPDocX v3.1 also offers:
o Minor improvements in the HTML to Word conversion: one may change the orientation of text within a table cell and avoid the splitting of table rows across pages.
o New configuration options for the “addImage” method
o It is now simpler to link internal bookmarks with the “addLink” method
o When merging two Word documents you can choose to insert line breaks between them to clearly separate their content
o You can now also import styles using their id (this simplifies some technical tasks)
o Minor bug fixes
