SharePoint Create File action - metadata not populated

I have a flow that is using the SharePoint Create File action to copy a file from one library to another. Both libraries have the same content types set up.


In most cases, the file contents and the metadata are included in the file created in the destination library. This is working for PDF and Word documents. 


However, a recent PDF has transferred without metadata. There is nothing unusual about the PDF, it has been created the same way as the other PDFs, via Word for Office 365. The content type is correct in the source and destination. 


Any suggestions why this might be happening?
