Get Attachment skipped when sending multiple attachment from sharepoint

So I was trying to send multiple attachments from a sharepoint list, however every time I tried to send the email, the action for getting the attachment were kind of whited out.

So the flow ran successfully and it managed to send the email, however I did not received the attachments. Did the flow just skipped the action? Or am I doing something wrong?

I can see you have a "Get Attachment Content" action, but no "Get Attachments" step. But it could be further above. 

 

Have a look at this blog post I wrote:

And see if you are missing any steps. It has the instructions for multiple attachments on approvals and the send email actions. You can just ignore the approvals stuff.

thank you for the feedback, unfortunately I already put a "Get Attachment" action above the skipped action.

 

Here is the screenshot for the rest of my flow:

I tried to follow your suggestion by changing the "append to array variable" value, but it still skipped the action.

@Paulie78 i found the problem. I made the mistake when inputing the "Select an output from previous steps". When I changed the reference, it finally works as intended.

 

Thank you for your help!
