Character distorts in Animate CC every time I select all frames

I have been using Animate CC since 2020 and recently I ran into an issue I can't get my head around. I have drawn a character from scratch in Animate CC and put every part on a different layer, converting it into symbols afterwards and then joined every layer using the layer-parenting.
But the character distorts and the ctrl+z button also goes ineffective when I use the up and down button after selecting every frame, I mean from frame 1 to the last frame.

I don't know what to do. the problem seems layer-parenting specific.

I have tried doing the same in other versions of animate cc, but the same problem occurred there as well.

help me find a solution. I am attaching the images!

Hard to say baaed on the screengrabs. Do you have multiple keyframes across your timeline and if so, is your layer parenting consistent throughout each keyframe? Can you provide the FLA?

That's a screen capture of me simply trying to rotate your rigged character - I don't see the same issue your sc reenshots show but I do see a very annoying visual glitch whenever I try to rotate a limb. 
I'm on a 2017 Macbook Pro running 2.3 GHz Dual-Core Intel i5 with 16GB RAM

Your Layer Parenting looks good except your facial featurees (eyes and nose) aren't parented. Personally, I would nest all of these facial assets inside a "head" symbol and have that the only thing parented to the rest of the body and then animate the facial features inside the head symbol.

But overall not sure what is happening on your machine excepot maybe you have a slower system/GPU?

I have yert to check out your other FLAs but I'll try soon

UGH! This has to be a major bug with Layer Parenting!

So sorry this is happening to you. This feature just isn't ready for prime time. One work-around would be to move the parent symbol containing yopur character instead of trying to move each symbol across layers inside the symbol - but I realize this isn't ideal. The tool should never force you to work a specific way.

I highly recommend https://flash-powertools.com/ 
It's a VERY powerful and rock-stable extension for Flash/Animate that provides really cool IK/FK rigging tools for character animation. I made a video that shows just how to use it...
