How can I get my character to walk using the right arrow key?

I am a relative newbie to Character Animator, but I am finding it a very useful tool. However, I have been stuck on a problem for a couple of days that I can't seem to fix.

My character will not walk right when pressing the right arrow key. The 'Frontal' view works, and the 'Left Profile' view works when the Left Arrow key is pressed. All tagging is the same from Left Profile and Right Profile. I was only experimenting with the function so the character is by no means the most complicated.

I am pulling my hair out! Not sure how to attach a file to this post but would be happy to share.

Thanks

Jamie

You're just missing a neck tag on the profile views. The arms need to know where the neck is to work properly. Add that and you should be okay!

I've run into this before and I forgot how I solved it. So yes, could you share here or DM me your .puppet file (File > Export > Puppet) via a shared link on Google Drive, Dropbox, or Creative Cloud to take a closer look?

That's great, thanks for the reply! I have uploaded the puppet - I've got him walking right and left but now his arms don't move! I was sure that I'd tagged it correctly.

If you could take a look that would be great.
