# jolyon2000

Hi have created a script which creates a PDF document from DOCX document, however, the formatting in the PDF document does not resemble that of the DOCX document at all!! My code is:

$document = new TransformDoc();

I have the Pro version so i would expect this to work!

# nschulze

i got the same problem =/

like jolyon and i already reported
nothing of the styles from the docx were set to the pdf

until now i found out, that the styles are missing completely

the xml file begins with the body tag

which function should add the meta information and the styles to the xhtml file?

PDF transformations are possible with a XSL created by Microsoft and DOMPDF.
The process is:

DOCX ---> (XSL) ---> HTML ---> (DOMPDF) ---> PDF

We're working to improve HTML and PDF documents, to solve the possible issues with missing styles.
