I have a simple table where the <td> start with empty line or <br>.

The result is that the second line get a space in begining.

I have checked the HTML and it is only like this <td><br>Second line</td>

See: https://ibb.co/F0LMGmt

I am using the embedHTML function and phpdocx v9.0.

How do I get rid of the extra space?

Hello,

We recommend you to wrap that content using a HTML tag (such as a paragraph or a span tag), for example:

$docx->embedHTML('
    <table>
        <tr>
            <td><br><p>First cell</p></td>
            <td>Second cell</td>
            <td>Third cell</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>2.1 cell</td>
            <td>2.2 cell</td>
            <td>2.3 cell</td>
        </tr>
    </table>
');

Or use the removeLineBreaks option:

$docx->embedHTML('
    <table>
        <tr>
            <td><br>First cell</td>
            <td>Second cell</td>
            <td>Third cell</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>2.1 cell</td>
            <td>2.2 cell</td>
            <td>2.3 cell</td>
        </tr>
    </table>
', array('removeLineBreaks' => true));

to clean extra line breaks that may be generated by PHP Tidy.

Regards.

Thank you very much, worked perfect! Did not have to use removeLineBreaks.
