Do you have the “record” button turned on for the walk behavior in the puppets panel? And "Start" set to "With Left and Right arrow keys"? I have a puppet, I click the scene button to create a new scene, and the arrow keys work. Here is the walk behavior settings I have. Note: If I turn off the Walk or Keyboard Input red dots then the arrow keys don't work (because it shows me what was recorded in the timeline).
I think Alan is correct.
Thanks for responding. Yes. I have the Walk button activated and the keyboard input button activated. My control is identical to yours. It still doesn't walk.
However, if I change the start to immediately it walks off toward the right. Perhaps I've rigged it incorrectly? But I don't see how.
Sometimes with bugs it helps to reinstall or do a cold start.

Restarting CH is definitely worthwhile (as Sharron said). Feel free to try the following before reinstalling, but a reinstall has fixed problems for a few people too.)
Here is a simple "legs" puppet I was using. (Its just legs - I have not drawn whole character in side profile!). If you download, "import" into a demo project, create a new scene with just this puppet in it, does left/right arrows work?
If you cannot work it out from there, feel free to export your puppet, upload to Google Drive/Dropbox/etc and share a public link then post it here in the forums or send me a direct message. I don't mind having a quick look to see if I can spot it (or if it works on my computer).
(This is how I used the legs - I set Scale X to -100% so to run the other direction - too lazy to get the profiles going right, plus with only one profile I can make it walk backwards which seemed possibly useful.)
Here is what I did and a quick run through of puppet as well. Note, I did not use any profiles, but that is probably not important for why arrow keys not working for you (I am guessing...)
Thank you. I fixed my problem using Helen's legs. You were all very helpful, thanks for being there.
