Hi, im using the "replaceVariableByWordFragment" to replace image on header. This is my code

$imageLogo = new WordFragment($docx, 'defaultHeader');
    $imageOptLogo = array(
        'src' => $aImagenes['Logo_Empresa'],
        'textWrap' => 0,
        'height' => 50,
        'width' => 50,
    $docx->replaceVariableByWordFragment(array('Logo_Empresa' => $imageLogo), array('target' => 'header', 'type' => 'block'));

But when i open the generated file, the image is broken, if i use this image on document it's ok but when i use de header, doesn't work.

Which license and version of phpdocx are you using?

The value 'defaultHeader' is not a valid target, you should use 'header'.

Hello, thanks for the reply.

I have the "phpdocx-corporate-4.1: licensed" and doesn't works. If i use the 'header' on "phpdocx-trial-pro-6.0" works, but replace all text on header, not only the tag. For example " Tittle: $image$ ", the method replace all.

Why this doesn't works in verswion 4.1.

Replacing WordFragment in headers feature was added in phpdocx 4.5, so it's not available in phpdocx 4.1, we recommend you to upgrade to the latest version available.

In your code, the whole paragraph is being replaced because you have added:

'type' => 'block'

this is block replacement. You need to use inline replacement or remove this line.
