I have a WYSIWYG editor where a user can capture HTML. When I use replaceVariableByHTML I want to import the HTML but keep the font size and font face the same as the template variable but allow the other elements of the HTML. How can I do this?

Here is the HTML it generates:

<ul>
<li>This</li>
<li>Is
<ul>
<li>A</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>Test</li>
</ul>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<table style="border-collapse: collapse; width: 100%;" border="1">
<tbody>
<tr>
<td style="width: 50%;"><strong>Header</strong></td>
<td style="width: 50%;"><strong>Header</strong></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td style="width: 50%;">Contents</td>
<td style="width: 50%;">Contents</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

Hello,

HTML to DOCX methods set a default font size and font family to handle all CSS styles and properties. Until the launch of phpdocx 10, when you replaced a placeholder using replaceVariableByHTML, the new contents applied font size and font family styles from the HTML/CSS (default styles when not set) overwriting the placeholder styles; so to apply the exact placeholder styles they needed to be added manually to the HTML/CSS or caught dynamically using getWordStyles.

Since the release of phpdocx 10, Premium licenses include the stylesReplacementType option in replaceVariableByHTML. This option allows mixing and replacing HTML/CSS and placeholder styles when doing replacements. We recommend you to read the information available about this option on https://www.phpdocx.com/api-documentation/templates/replace-variable-html-Word-document, and also checks the included samples in the package, that illustrates how to use this option.

Regards.
