Populate a Microsoft Word Template Dynamic Schema Out of Order

 Using the Populate a Microsoft Word Template connector, plain text content controls, blank Word .docx except for the content controls. When the file library and the file location are mapped, the dynamic schema populate out of order. Additionally, if I pass the correct variable from Power Apps to the corresponding field, it will still end up in the incorrect order on the created Word document.

Make sure on your template content controls are given a proper title

Yes - exactly - they have all been given a very simple title.

For example, I create 5 content controls, one below the other control1, control2, control 3, control4, control5. When the connector populates the schema, it will be control2, control5, control3, control1, control4. I delete the flow, the document, the app etc and start from scratch. The same problem occurs. Strangely, it used to work when I first began experimenting with the connector.


Is there some sort of setting in Word that may have changed that is causing the error?
