A call to createDocxAndDownload() with a filename that contains one or more directories will fail to download. I don't know if it's a bug or I'm using it incorrectly.

For example:


Generates the file in the correct path, but tries to download the file "file.docx" withouth the path, downloading a plain text file with the desired name (and extension) and a php error inside:

<p>Severity: Warning</p>
<p>Message:  filesize(): stat failed for file.docx</p>
<p>Filename: Create/</p>
<p>Line Number: 3701</p>

Editing the file Classes/Phpdocx/Create/, lines 3701 and 3702 solves my problem. From:

header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($fileNameDownload . '.' . $this->_extension));
readfile($fileNameDownload . '.' . $this->_extension);


header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($args[0]));

More changes should be required as this edit breaks calls to createDocxAndDownload without the filename parameter.
