Hello,

The issue comes from the default width. If you open the table properties with MS Word, you can see that "Automatically resize to fit contents" is enabled, but as the script doesn't set a table width, then phpdocx sets it as 100% pct.

You can set a custom table width (as 0) to get the output you want:

$docx = new CreateDocx();

$valuesTable = array(
    array(
        11,
        12,
        13,
        14
    ),
    array(
        21,
        22,
        23,
        24
    ),
    array(
        31,
        32,
        33,
        34
    ),

);

$paramsTable = array(
    'border' => 'single',
    'tableAlign' => 'center',
    'borderWidth' => 10,
    'borderColor' => 'B70000',
    'textProperties' => array('bold' => true, 'font' => 'Algerian', 'fontSize' => 18),
    'tableLayout' => 'autofit', // this is the default value
    'tableWidth' => array('type' =>'pct', 'value' => 0),
);

$docx->addTable($valuesTable, $paramsTable);

$docx->createDocx('output');

Adding that line to your script, the autofit will work perfectly:

'tableWidth' => array('type' =>'pct', 'value' => 0)

Also please note that as many DOCX readers can't handle auto values correctly, we recommend adding fixed sizes to get the best compatibility. We are going to add this information to the API page.

Regards.
