I have finished my puppet.
She walks just fine... all 3 views.
The issue that I am having is that she won't stop walking even though I have the Left and Right Arrow keys set.
I have to keep resetting the scene to get her to go back to her starting spot.
I recorded her walking onto the screen. The recording is fine. but outside of the recording she is still walking!
Also when I drag my frame bar over the timeline to see where the characters are etc. she doesn't show up like all of the others. The only way I can see what she is doing is to press play and watch the recording over and over.
I have looked all over the internet and this site. I have watched all of the Okay Samurai videos. I can not find anything for the newest version of adobe character animate. Please if you have any ideas that would be wonderful.
I am not allowed to post the file here... sorry. But if you want to see settings or something let me know.

There is a relatively recent feature added for walking that makes it much easier, called "position based". Rather than left/right you keyframe the position, and it walks based on the direction of movement. But it means you can reliably scrub in the timeline and it all comes out right.
The problem with left/right is it just remembers which direction to go at that time - and scrubbing it does not remember how far you went, only how long you scrub back. And if the last value in the track is left or right, then even when you hit "stop" the puppet keeps moving (as it pauses on the last left/right value you picked). Position based recording solves all those problems - you tell the puppet where it should be and Ch gets the walk direction right based on that. Much more robust and much less pain to use.
Brilliant! I'm new to animation so I appreciate the explanation of the position based feature. I just went along with the online tutorials that used the left/right.
The position based feature loworked like a charm!
Thank you so much!
