Word Online Seems to Makes Document a Mess

I have this seemingly unique problem that I can't find a solution for. I have a template made that I upload to Sharepoint, however upon doing so, the layout of the document is apparently negated and all objects, pictures, and text boxes get thrown at the top together. I've tested in many various ways and they all end up the same. I've tried uploading it as a .doc instead of a .docx and that worked, but I'm trying to use Power Automate with it and the connector doesn't use .doc, so I can't go that route.


If I use the Populate Word Template on the file on OneDrive, it does the exact same thing.


Has anyone seen this before or have any ideas to help me out? Appreciate any help I can get!
