Can't move cartoon character and ALL it's states at once.

Hello All,

So I've downloaded Storyline 2 and I'm keen to use the 'Time Line Trigger events' (changing a characters expression via states based on trigger aligned to a cue point) as demonstrated at

So I've set up a cartoon character with multiple expressions BUT when I try and move the character around the screen  - e.g. I want it a little to the left or right - only the current state moves, non of the other states move position.

So when I set a trigger to change states and therefore expressions the character jumps around the screen.

How can I move the character, with all its states, AT ONCE?

I didn't have this issue with Storyline (1) with any shapes or images that I can recall.

Hi Claire

I just did a test following Arlyn's tutorial and it worked for me.  I can grab the character from centre of the screen and move her left or right and the states are still there.  Maybe I am not understanding your issue.

Do you want to load your .story file and we'll take a look.

Hi Claire,

Please feel free to keep us posted if you're still running into difficulty. You'll also want to check that you're working on local project files as described here, and if it seems specific to that file you could also try importing it into a new file as described here

Hope that helps.
