Hi all,

unfortunately, we have the issue that template blocks get split between two tags somehow and do not work anymore.

<w:r w:rsidRPr="00BB5E6A">
<w:rPr>
<w:rFonts w:cstheme="minorHAnsi"/>
<w:color w:val="000000" w:themeColor="text1"/>
<w:sz w:val="16"/>
<w:szCs w:val="6"/>
</w:rPr>
<w:t>$BLOCK</w:t>
</w:r>


<w:r>


<w:rPr>

<w:rFonts w:cstheme="minorHAnsi"/>

<w:color w:val="000000" w:themeColor="text1"/>

<w:sz w:val="16"/>

<w:szCs w:val="6"/>

</w:rPr>

<w:t>_ACCOUNT$</w:t>

</w:r>

</w:p>

In the example above, the block is split and we cannot clone it anymore.

Below is an example which works.

<w:p w:rsidP="001C7351" w:rsidRDefault="00517B3D" w:rsidRPr="001C7351" w:rsidR="00BB5E6A" w14:textId="129ABE70" w14:paraId="69229FF2">


<w:r>

<w:t>$BLOCK_CONTACT$</w:t>

</w:r>

</w:p>

How can this be prevented?

This seems to happen without making any changes to any block variable.

Thanks!

Hello,

What version of phpdocx are you using? phpdocx handles that broken tags automatically for placeholders; old versions of phpdocx may require cleaning the variables before calling cloneBlock (https://www.phpdocx.com/api-documentation/templates/proccess-a-word-docx-template):

$docx->processTemplate();

Latest releases include the same code embedded in the cloneBlock method. Other template methods include it too.

Regards.
