Default Problem with hierarchies

Hi I'm a newbie to Maya and I'm learning about heirarchies at the moment.

I am able to show the tree of hierarchies in the outliner for my set of objects. However when I select my parent object, it shows all the objects under it as selected in the window, but they don't move as one object when I try to move them together. Only the parent object moves. (same with scaling & rotating)

Is there a setting in Maya thats stopping this from happening? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks so much for any help.

Emms :blush:

There's a setting called "preserve child transform". I can't quite remember where it's located (maybe your move tool settings?), but it's possible you have this turned on.
