Hello, I've recently purchased the Premium package and I'm working with templates.

I've been trying center an image using replaceVariableByWordFragment, is that possible?

Also I've havn't been able to get replacePlaceholderImage working.

These are the steps I've been following:

  1. Right Click on image and select 'Add Alt Text'
  2. Add the value $IMAGE$ to the Alt Text Title
  3. Then I run this code $docx->replacePlaceholderImage('IMAGE',$to_folder_path.'/'.$file_name, ['target'=>'document']);

Any help would be appreciated.

$docx->replacePlaceholderImage('IMAGE',$to_folder_path.'/'.$file_name, ['target' => 'document']);

Yes, you can set image properties when using replaceVariableByWordFragment. You need to set float and imageAlign properties as center and use a not inline textWrap with addImage. Also please set target as block with replaceVariableByWordFragment to overwrite the default align of the paragraph.

About replacePlaceholderByImage, we have done some tests and everything is working correctly. Please run the example included in the package (examples/Templates/replacePlaceholderByImage) and check it. If you still are unable to use the method, please send to contact[at] your template and we'll check if the placeholder has been added correctly.
