Hello,

while converting docx to pdf, it removes table formating as well as I am getting header and footer on only page 1,3,5,7 why it skips page 2,4,6,8. Any resolution. I am using template and populating its contents.

Please help.

Thanks

Hello,
I have found that using the pdf converter doesn't work very well on complex documents. If you are on an IIS server you may want to look into COM with word. We are using that and it works perfectly. On Linux, I think there is a COM option for using open office to do the pdf conversion, but you may have to look around a little for that one.

The short answer, though, is don't use the pdf converter in the PHPDocx library as it won't keep styles.

Hello,

Phpdocx pro+ and Phpdocx corporate use a plugin converter that use OpenOffice and OdfConverter to to PDF conversion. This method has much better results than using XSL files.
