I have understood your scenario and tried same requirement in my environment.

You need to check 2 things to make your code in running mode

1- You should not run the workflow from system account

2- The type of data you are copying from one list to another must match datatype else it will not copy in another list.

Here what i have tried in my environment

enter image description here. It is working perfectly.


Are you creating an item in a document library? The dialog suggests that. In that case, you need to provide a file/document. Just metadata is not sufficient.
