3D Studio Max Question about Bipeds & Footsteps, controlling Placement &Location.

i made a set of stairs because i wanted to learn a little more IK (inverse kinematics) in Max.

all the tutorials i had done, you put footsteps down on some neutral plane. all wonderfully interesting and everything, but - what if you want to use this function to make a character climb a parapet to a castle or something ?

viewed in wireframe mode, footsteps are "hidden", in a manner of speaking. i had wanted to put them on the brick looking stairs.

there's got to be a secret to do this ! !

any and all help would be appreciated.

thanks !

OK, finally figured it out. it's got to be in "footstep mode", with the footstep icon clicked on.

but, not in a mode where you're creating new footsteps.

anyway, therein lies a chance to select footstep objects and then to move them around.

Max is so cool !!!
