    I have created a workflow using SharePoint Designer 2013 with SharePoint 2010 platform and it works fine.

    Create an list,  create a column which is with choice type but with checkboxes for the list.

    Open the site in SharePoint Designer->create a workflow on the list like the following:

    So, try to use SharePoint 2010 platform to create the workflow.

    If there is any problems, feel free to reply back.

  • Yes Lisa, that works for me. But I'm eager to know why it is failing in SPD 2013 is there any root cause behind this.

    Thank You.

  • Hi AKram,

    I done a test again in another environment SharePoint 2013 today.  

    I created the same workflow using SharePoint Designer 2013 with SharePoint 2013 platform and it works fine.

    For your issue, I suggest you create a new list with choice column and then create a new item with the SPD 2013 platform workflow. Compare whether it works.

    Besides, create a list without choice column and then create a new item with the SPD 2013 platform workflow. Compare whether it works.

    If it not works, maybe there are some problems with your SharePoint 2013 workflow:
