we saw a few temporary files remaining in the system temp dir and we analyzed it a bit. It seems that the temp files generated in createDocx() method are not being deleted. Could that be changend in the next version?

Phpdocx uses system temp directoy, so the SO should delete these files on its own. Also if you restart the machine they'll be delete or when you run a cron task.

For now phpdocx won't deleted these files on the released version, but you can add an unlink function in CreateDocx class. If you need a path please reply this email.

Hello Jorge,

When generating worddocument, a temporary file crated is deleted succesully, but it also creates two other directories with subfolders required by word document and these two directories are not deleted. Is there a solution for this?
