$legends = array(
'legend1' => array(24),
'legend2' => array(45),
'legend3' => array(31)
);
$args = array(
'data' => $legends,
'type' => 'pie3DChart',

'textEndNote' => 'Curabitur id dui purus, sit amet blandit lacus. ' .
'Vivamus mollis magna et risus molestie blandit. ' .
'Phasellus vel tortor quis metus consectetur.'
)
);

$docx->addBreak('line');

$text = 'Cras eget porttitor sapien. Aenean tristique, nibh quis egestas ' .
'varius, erat neque sodales neque, quis bibendum sem lorem accumsan ' .
'mauris. Aliquam justo justo, vulputate sed condimentum non, pharetra:';

$paramsText = array(

$paramsImg = array(
'name' => '../files/img/image.png',
'scaling' => 75,

);

$docx->addImage($paramsImg);

$docx->addFootnote(
