i have a documents where i replace a variable:

$docx = new CreateDocxFromTemplate($tmp_file_path);
$docx->replaceVariableByText($params);

it works fine at this step.

next step i convert docx to pdf.

$docx = new TransformDocAdvLibreOffice();
$docx->transformDocument($file['path'], $file_path ,'',['method'=>'direct','debug' => true]);

and thats when the issues happens new lines are instered before and after the variables. i tested the same document without replacing variables and do not experience same issue.

i.e.

Hello,

Maybe the new data doesn't fit in that position (due to table or other margins) and a line break is automatically added by the DOCX viewer? Please send to DOCX to contact[at]phpdocx.com and we'll check it.

Regards.
