    Dangle in Illustrator not dangling

    JenglePHOTO

      Similar question about Dangle posted earlier.  I am working on a character that I've built from scratch but following the tutorial's framework, and using some parts of existing sample puppets.  I have the following structure:

       

      +character {warpWith="contour"}

           Hair

           Head

           +Right Earring {attachTo = "Right Ear"}

                Origin

                Dangle

                Fixed

                Dangle REarring

       

      Right Earring is a group.

       

      The earrings don't dangle.

       

      I have tried turning off the Origin & Dangle and putting the word dangle in the object (Right Earring Dangle) with and without a plus as well as in the folder structure.   Origin & Dangle points are points added by using the Pen tool & named appropriately?

       

      After looking at the default Illustrator Character I see

       

      neck

      +necklace {attachTo = "neck"}

           Origin

           Fixed

           Dangle pendant

           Dangle beaker

       

      With Dangle beaker a group.  Neck is at the same level as head.  Other than being grouped under the head, and only having one dangle property it looks the same to me.

       

      Thanks!
