I tried to use addText to a shape (just as a string to a rounded rectangle), but there is no text visible in the shape.

Has anyone a working example here?

Please check the following sample included in phpdocx 9.5 and newer releases: examples/Core/addShape/sample_2.php. In this sample you can find how to add text contents into a shape. The following code adds a roundrect shape with a text content:

$txtboxContent = new WordFragment($docx);

$runs = array();

$runs[] = array('text' => 'This text is normal.');
$runs[] = array('text' => ' And this text is red.', 'color' => 'FF0000');


$options = array(
        'width' => 60,
        'height' => 60,
        'strokecolor' => '#ff00ff',
        'strokeweight' => '3',
        'fillcolor' => '#ffff00',
        'position' => 'absolute',
        'marginLeft' => 10,
        'marginTop' => -5,
        'arcsize' => 0.2,
        'textContent' => $txtboxContent,

$docx->addShape('roundrect', $options);
