Hello,

That error appears when trying to use a not supported font family. Although the next release of phpdocx will remove it, you can update the method replacing this line:

$font = Font_Metrics::get_font($family, $subtype);

with:

$font = $family;

And:

$family = null;
if ($DEBUGCSS)  print '(default)';
$font = Font_Metrics::get_font($family, $subtype);

with:

$family = null;
//if ($DEBUGCSS)  print '(default)';
$font = $family;

Also remove the Exception in the same method:

throw new Exception("Unable to find a suitable font replacement for: '" . $this->_props["font_family"] ."'");

Regards.

Hello,

The Font_Metrics class exception when trying to use a not valid font was removed with the release of phpdocx 9.

Regards.
