base64ToBinary expression does not save

I created a flow to upload files from Power Apps. I used ask Power Apps action to get  file name and content. For content, I used this expression - base64ToBinary(triggerBody()['CreatefileFileContent']). But this expression will not save even I saved it. While I was working on the flow, I could test it successfully. But whenever I saved and reopened the flow, the expression will be gone and it'll switch back to CreateFileContent default. This appears a bug. Anyone has any way to save the expression?

It is weird. I tested today and it worked. Although the formula still doesn't show in the flow, the action actually converts the file and all files are now readable again. So the issue has been resolved. I hope Microsoft can resolve the issue to display the correct formula in future.

Can you add a Compose action above the Create action and check if the Power Apps returns you base64 content..

@CFernandes  I don't have any variables. I can only put CreatefileFileName or CreatefileFileContent. I added CreatefileFileContent and got an error when I tried to save it. Do you have any ideas?
