Please see the following code.

Both Font A and Font B are built-in Chinese fonts in Windows.

Font A is the default Chinese font in Word.

If I set "Font B" as the default font in php, "Font B" is only applied to "Some English characters" but not applied to "Some Chinese characters". 

$docx = new Phpdocx\Create\CreateDocx();
$docx->setDefaultFont('Font B');
$docx->addText('Some English characters');
$docx->addText('Some Chinese characters');
$docx->addText('Some Chinese characters', ['font'=>'Font B']);
$docx->createDocx('hello_world');

 

Because I can not type Chinese in the forum, please also see the result in the following screenshot.

Hello,

We have done some quick tests and the DOCX output is correct in all cases. Maybe the font name is not being set correctly? Please send the sample script (as file) and its DOCX output to contact[at]phpdocx.com and we'll check it.

Regards.

Hello,

Thanks for sending the requested files. The problem comes from one missing attribute support when using the font option with addText: w:eastAsia is not being applied and your font needs it.

We recommend you to use custom paragraph styles (and custom character styles if needed), both methods createParagraphStyle and createCharacterStyle support w:eastAsian attributes:

// style options
$style = array(
  'font' => 'fontname',
);
// create custom style
$docx->createParagraphStyle('myStyle', $style);

If you want to add support for w:eastAsian attribute in addText method with the font option without using custom paragraph/character styles, please edit CreateElement.php, and go to generateRFONTS method, instead of:

protected function generateRFONTS($font)
{
  $xml = '<' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':rFonts ' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':ascii="' . $font . '" ' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':hAnsi="' . $font . '" ' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':cs="' . $font . '"></' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':rFonts>__GENERATERPR__';

  $this->_xml = str_replace('__GENERATERPR__', $xml, $this->_xml);
}

replace it by:

protected function generateRFONTS($font)
{
  $xml = '<' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':rFonts ' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':ascii="' . $font . '" ' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':hAnsi="' . $font . '" ' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':eastAsia="' . $font . '" ' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':cs="' . $font . '"></' . CreateElement::NAMESPACEWORD .
    ':rFonts>__GENERATERPR__';

  $this->_xml = str_replace('__GENERATERPR__', $xml, $this->_xml);
}

The same change has been included in the current development branch and will be added to the next release of phpdocx.

Regards.
