Stop moving arms while walking

Hi everyone! I've created a character in Adobe Character Animator and I'm using the walking function, but since my character has a strange shape the arms look wobbly and inconsistent with the character's body. Is there a way that I can enable the walking function but prevent the arms from moving with it?

 

I've turned Arm Swing and Elbow Bend to 0% under the Walk behavior on the properties panel but they still move. I would like them to remain static and only the legs moving. 

 

Thanks for the help!

Try removing the wrist and elbow (and maybe shoulder) tags. That is how it understands what arms are. Without the tags it won't know what the arms are so won't move them.

I removed wrist and elbow tags but left the shoulder tags and the movement is even better than I expected! You will get that extra stretch in the arms that you prevent with using the tags but you win some, you lose some. It looks great how it is. 

 

Thank you so much! You really are a people's champ.
