CreateTemplate.ReturnAllVariables in some cases does not return the correct set of variables included in the document. I changed the code to the following, which works for me:

Original code:
[code]
$documentSymbol = explode(self::$_templateSymbol, self::$_document);
$i = 0;
foreach ($documentSymbol as $documentSymbolValue) {
// avoid first and last values, and tag elements
if ($i == 0 || $i == count($documentSymbol)
|| $documentSymbolValue[0] == '<') {
$i++;
continue;
} else {
$variables['document'][] = strip_tags($documentSymbolValue);
$i++;
}
}
[/code]

My code:
[code]
$documentSymbol = explode(self::$_templateSymbol, strip_tags(self::$_document));
$i = 0;
foreach ($documentSymbol as $documentSymbolValue) {
if ($i % 2 == 0) {
$i++;
continue;
} else {
$variables['document'][] = strip_tags($documentSymbolValue);
$i++;
}
}
[/code]

In the case I faced the spellchecker added xml markup directly after the delimiter, so the if-case fired and the loop continued without adding the variable. I think there was a reason you wrote the code the way you did it. So am I missing something?

Hello,

Thanks for the code, we'll check it.

I am having the same issue. Some docx templates have a lot of tags, therefore the last part of following condition:
[code]
if ($i == 0 || $i == count($documentSymbol) || $documentSymbolValue[0] == '<')
[/code]

is almost always true.
I modified the code in similar way as mquadrat:
[code]
$documentSymbol = explode(self::$_templateSymbol, self::$_document);
foreach ($documentSymbol as $i => $documentSymbolValue)
{
if ($i % 2 != 0)
$variables['document'][] = strip_tags($documentSymbolValue);
}
[/code]

Please let us know what was the reason you prepared the condition in such form, so we can be sure that our modifications won't break other functionality?

I am using latest PHPDocx PRO version 2.7
