Hi, 

I'm using the TransformDocAdvHTML to transform a previously created docx to HTML. Consider the following word content: 

$itemList = array(
    'Line 1',
    array(
        'Line A',
        'Line B',
        'Line C'
    ),
    'Line 2',
    'Line 3',
);


$docx->addList($itemList, 2);
$docx->addText('ordinary text line');

When tranforming to HTML, it gives me a correct HTML structure, such as: 

<ol>
 <li>Line 1</li>
 <ol>
  <li>Line A</li>
  <li>Line B</li>
  <li>Line C</li>
 </ol>
 <li>Line 2</li>
 <li>Line 3</li>
<ol>
<p>ordinary text line</p>

 

HOWEVER, if the list ends with the nested list item, as follows:

$itemList = array(
    'Line 1',
    array(
        'Line A',
        'Line B',
        'Line C'
    ),
);


$docx->addList($itemList, 2);
$docx->addText('ordinary text line');

...then the <ol> tag is not closed properly and the resulting HTML looks like this:

<ol>
 <li>Line 1</li>
 <ol>
  <li>Line A</li>
  <li>Line B</li>
  <li>Line C</li>
 </ol>
 <p>ordinary text line</p>

 [AND ALL OTHER CONTENT ALSO SHOWS WITHIN THIS <ol> TAG]

<ol>

 

As you can see, the <p> tag and all other html comes before/within the closing </ol> tag. But it should come after.

Is there an easy "fix"?

Using version 8.0, advanced. 

Thanks!

Hello,

phpdocx 8.5 added changes to the internal algorithm to handle that kind of nested list correctly.

Although we recommend you to upgrade to phpdocx 8.5 to get the latest improvements in the DOCX to HTML transformation feature (https://www.phpdocx.com/news/post/phpdocx-v8-5-release-notes/217), you can apply the following patch to use the numbering styles with nested lists:
