Here is a simple code sample we use :

     $pdf = new FPDI();
        $pageCount = $pdf->setSourceFile($filename);
        for ($i = 1; $i <= $pageCount; $i++) { 
                $tplidx = $pdf->ImportPage($i);
                if ($i != $pageCount or $pageCount == 1){
        $pdf->Output($filename, 'F');

Basically, it adds an image on each page of a PDF file.

Until we buy PHPDOCX, we were using this program and all was working fine. But now we include PHPDOCX in our scripts and its seems that it has its own embedded FPDI version.

The problem is that this embedded version is slightly different from the older one we had, and now, using the program above adds strange borders to our documents.

So is there a way to include both PHPDOCX and another FPDI version without having conflicts ? Or is there something we can do to remove those strange borders (on top and bottom of document) ?

You can replace the included FPDI library in the lib folder of the package by any other version.

The phpdocx namespaces package doesn't have conflict names when using other libraries, This package is available in Advanced and Premium licenses.

Thank you for your support.

Actually, i found out how to fix this problem without having to change embedded library.

     $pdf = new FPDI();

Turns out that in your version, those two parameters are set to 'TRUE' by default. So i just had to switch them.

Phpdocx 6 added those changes, maybe you are using an old version of phpdocx.
