We recommend you to check the samples included in the package (DocxPath folder) and the documentation available on In these samples, you can find a lot of queries, including using custom queries.

For example, the following sample included in the package:

$docx = new CreateDocxFromTemplate('../../files/DOCXPathTemplate.docx');

$referenceNode = array(
    'type' => 'paragraph',
    'contains' => 'level 2 heading',

$styles = $docx->getWordStyles($referenceNode);


returns the styles applied to the paragraph that contains level 2 heading. This method returns an array with all styles of the queried content ordered by type.
