$options = [
        'from' => '0,0',
        'to' => '640,0',
        'strokecolor' => '#000000',
        'strokeweight' => '1',
        'position' => 'relative',
$docx->addShape('line', $options);
$docx->addText('test test test');

When I use this the result becomes:



test test test



Is there a way to remove this extra row? I need text on the very next row without the space inbetween.


Also the from value... I do not undestand what convertion I need to use if i want the line to stop at 190mm (20 mm from right side on A4 paper).

All shapes are wrapped by a paragraph tag that adds default Word spacing (you can set a custom spacing using a template). We recommend you to check the sample available on:

That adds a shape with its position changed using the option marginTop. You can use this option to accomplish what you need.

About from option, it sets the x and y coordinates. You can also use the width option to set the size of the shape.

Thanks for answer.

In documentation on that page it say margin-top, but in example marginTop is used. What is the correct way?


You missunderstood my question about "from" x/y cords. I wonder what unit it is.... px? pt? twip? mm?


Thanks :)
