I have a doc which contains sections( multiple ).

I wants to remove a particular section which contains some text. I am using xpath.

snippet :

$referenceNode= array(
'type' => 'section',
'contains' => 'Bali'
);
$queryInfo = $docx->getDocxPathQueryInfo($referenceNode);

But queryinfo gives me :

Array
(
    [length] => 0
    [query] => //w:body/w:p/w:pPr/w:sectPr[1=1 and  contains(., 'Mali')]/../..
)

  I tried to get a section by it occurrence and its working fine and I am able to remove that section also. But with 'contains' its not working.

I am using removeWordContent method to remove a section.

$docx->removeWordContent($referenceNode);

  Also If I am trying to remove a paragraph which contains some particular text it also gets removed successfully.

   Can you please assist How can we achieve it?
