I have a document library with a custom (document) content type set as default (the only content type), and I've edited the template to use columns to populate the document.
When I create a new document in the library, the document based off the template opens in Word, and the 3 content type fields that correspond to my columns are available for editing in Word. When I save the document, that information is visible in the columns of the library.
BUT when I created a workflow on a list (with those same site columns) with the only workflow action being to create a new list item in this document library, the workflow completes successfully, the columns on the document library are populated, but the document itself is completely blank!
Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this?
