Our customers wish to use the / character in their templates. I also can't pass an escaped \/ to addTemplateVariable. It would seem more logical to escape the regex correctly within the PHPDOCX code like so:



        function regexEscape($regex)



        {

                $patterns = array('/', '^', '.', '$', '|', '(', ')', '[', ']', '*', '+', '?', '{', '}', ',');

                $replace = array('\/', '\^', '\.', '\$', '\|', '\(', '\)', '\[', '\]', '\*', '\+', '\?', '\{', '\}', '\,');

                return str_replace($patterns, $replace, $regex);

        }
