Convert list item to linked cards

Hello! I have been trying to make a command in Butler to convert list items into cards. It seems that it works correctly and Butler does not give any warnings or errors.

 

The only problem that I'm experiencing is that the command does not create new cards, while I expect the command to do so :)!

 

This is my command:

"when checklist "Subtasks" is added to a card, convert all the items in checklist "Subtasks" into linked cards"

 

And this is the log that I see in Butler:

I created 0 cards in list "To do" from the items in checklist "Subtasks" in card https://trello.com/c/...

The command finished running.

 

Why does it not create a card?

Seems to work ok for a new checklist created loaded with items from previously  created checklist. 

Aah but I want it to work for the checklist that I make. Any ideas what I need to edit?

@Bryan van Anrooij 

At the point of creating the checklist, there is no item for Butler to convert, isn't it? Am I missing something? You probably need to set a trigger once you have built your checklist.

But the rule says that when I add a checklist (called Subtasks) that all the items (in that same checklist) need to be converted to a linked card, right?

 

"when checklist "Subtasks" is added to a card, convert all the items in checklist "Subtasks" into linked cards"

Do I need another rule to create this? 

 

I found this example which I am trying to recreate on this page: https://help.trello.com/article/1165-task-dependencies

Quite familiar with this tutorial. Good one to step through to learn. Did a quick word find of it for the above command but could not find it. Suggest you go through it.
