Word Online PDF Converter should take dynamic file input

I know the Word Online PDF converter is in preview, but not being able to select a file dynamically is a big turn down.

 

Inspired by this forum thread, I hereby (so formal) ask for the PDF converter to be able to take dynamic files.

This is so strange...

I've designed a lot of flows using dynamic content to convert a Word File to PDF (Using the Word Connector).

It's worked perfectly fine up until today??

 

Has anything changed??

Crazy it was not dynamic by default

We were able to get it to work dynamically by using the "displayname" token from the "Convert Word Document to PDF" action following the instructions in the last comment of https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Convert-word-to-PDF-error-400-There-was-an-error-...

This function was working the way @GraysonBishop mentioned, but suddenly after 8 months of working this way no longer works. I have tried using the workarounds mentioned but none of them are working, so I am very curious what has happened. Basically the connector is useless this way, and breaks a process that I built. From testing it appears to be working about 35% of the time, using an actual selected file.
