Unable to move more than one action into a condition

Hi everyone

I have a small issue that has only started happening recently.  I have an old flow and need to make a change where I'm adding a condition to the middle of the flow.  I've added the condition but now I need to move some of the actions that come after it into one of the condition results.  Basically all the steps shown after the condition below need to be added into the Yes condition result:

Previously I could just drag and drop each action individually into the condition but for some reason now it lets me move one action in this way but then when I try to move a second one it won't let me, the cursor shows the forbidden icon.  I've tried this in both Edge and Chrome and the result is the same in both.

Has anyone else experienced this and is it just a feature that has changed in Power Automate as I used to be able to do this with no issue?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You can't drag any action into the first or last position in a container in Power Automate.  So as you have seen you can add the first action to the Yes or No. But after that you are trying to drag a condition to the first or last position, which won't work.  The easiest workaround is to manually add a compose after the first action you dragged into the container.  Then you can drag the actions between the first action and the compose.  When you are done just delete the compose.
