Email template - order item layout not appearing

In recent days I was working on email templates and I thought that I’m going crazy.

If I send an order confirmation using Magento default order confirmation all was good, however, when I created my own order confirmation template without any customization product details were not included in the email. Please see the attached screenshot.

I found this post. It might be helpful to some of you. I haven’t tested it yet.

I’m testing on M 2.3.5-p1 + Ubuntu 18.04 Oracle VM.

Note, there are both Customer and Non-Logged in template versions. In the second image, it looks like you’re missing all of your variable placeholders.

Just to clarify, this is a default template for Logged In Customer (Order Confirmation).

{{template config_path="design/email/header_template"}}

Hi,
I was testing on ‘New order Guest’.
This is the content after I loaded the original template.

The default template works, but loaded and saved as it is doesn’t.

        <td>
            <p class="greeting">{{trans "%name," name=$order.billing_address.name}}</p>

                {{trans 'If you have questions about your order, you can email us at <a href="mailto:%store_email">%store_email</a>' store_email=$store_email |raw}}{{depend store_phone}} {{trans 'or call us at <a href="tel:%store_phone">%store_phone</a>' store_phone=$store_phone |raw}}{{/depend}}.
