2.79 problem - bones (suddenly) not moving

Oh Crap!

I’ve got a 2.79 project that has 2 rigged characters, and they were working just fine. I was playing around with adding poses to the Pose Library on one of them.

SUDDENLY neither of the armatures are pose-able. If I try to rotate a bone with the mouse, everything looks like it should - arrows and rotate gizmo - but the bone doesn’t move.

What have I done?

Thanks

Hey, Open a new file and ‘Append’ them, see if you have control over them

Yep. Tried that. (I was just about to post an update)

Appended characters are OK !

Update.

New project, append characters, everything OK.
New project, append scene, everything OK.

Hi,

Do you have “Rest Position” activated? If so, change it to Pose Position.

Yes, but thanks.

Update.

Since I was able to append the entire scene, I am good-to-go.

But still curious,… what the heck happened???
