Question Go to Bind Pose with IK intact?

OK - Heres one.

Having done some binding, skinning, testing, un-binding,and
weight painting, I find that Maya wont let me "Go To Bind Pose"
unless I first delete all my IK handles.

Its a pain having to re-apply IK handles every time I re-bind
a character, so can anyone offer a solution to going to the
bind pose with IK handles intact?

Or is it actually impossible?

You can temporarily disable IK solvers by going to Modify > Evaluate Nodes > IK Solvers. When you disable IK solvers, you can go to bind pose for your joints. Enable the IK solvers again, and everything snaps back into place.
