Convert to PDF Not Working

Hey everyone! I've read a few posts about this and it seems like this action works for some and not others. I'm building a very simple flow and the Convert File continues to fail no matter what changes/modifications I make to my flow. If anyone has an idea of something else to try or why this would not be working please respond.


High level details:

Trigger: When a File is created or modified (properties only)

Condition: Title contains 'Delinquent'

If Yes > Get File Properties > Get File Content > Create File in One Drive > Convert File // It succeeds up until this step

Hello @Augeas ,

I get the same error.
Did you find a solution? Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not.
Can someone help?
Thank you.
