IK nails

I’m trying to pin the feet to the floor while I move the pelvis, but the program simply ignores it - the nail only stays put if if you try to move the part immediately above it in the heirarchy. Am I missing something-???

Is all the parts in hierarchy? Pelvis parent of> leg, parent of > calf, parent to> foot.
Do you have some other part of you character that is locked (nail or orientation) that could limits the movement of the pelvis?

Is your master (highest peg or element in the hiearchy) set to “Enable Translation if Top of Hiearchy”?
