It doesn't matter what you choose (clothes, hair, accessory, chainsaw, whatever). 4) Make sure your *character* is selected, then save him/ her back into the Figures Library under a new name.   *Here's the "Trick"*...   5) When you save, Poser will ask you if you want to save the Whole Group or Individual Figure. Choose *Whole Group*.   Now every time you load your newly saved favorite character, it will appear with the second figure attached and *the IK will be off by default*.   *Note that this ONLY works if you add a second figure, not a parented Prop or Hair object from the Hair Library
