Is it possible to merge documents before creating them? I want to use one template, but insert different values to the same variables. Now i do it with a loop, generating a new document everytime, and would then eventually merge them. But this is very slow. So the better way would be to create multible docx objects, replace the variables, merge the objects and then create a single file. Is this possible? I have to generate up to 1000 pages at once and that takes around 2 to 3 hours...

Yes, you can do that easily using the MultiMerge class included in Corporate and Enterprise licenses.

And there're some options to improve the speed of phpdocx. What license and version of phpdocx are you using?

I use the Try Version now but my company wants to buy the corperate licence next week as we plan to create pdf form letters.

Please tell me how to speed it up! I would really appreciate it. The product is amazing but 200 minutes for 1000 letters is much too long for our users...
