Bone Tool Characters Disappearing

Several of my students are animating stick figures using the bone tool. The problem is that the characters are constantly disappearing from the scene.

When you click on the layer, you can see that the armature is still there...the bone structure becomes visible, but the stick figure is either invisible, or stuck in a previous location (like off stage).

The only temporary solution I've found is that if they take the playhead and put it on a pose keyframe and then make an adjustment to the bones, the stick figure will miraculously jump back into the correct position. But then it just happens again later.

Any ideas? We are using Flash CS5 on iMacs.

Unfortunately im having the same trouble just finished a lovely walk cycle, saved it, re-opened it having had a tea break to find arms and legs are missing.

Is there a solution or work around?

Would really appreciate any help

Thank you
Kind Regards

OK i've jus had the same experience, so selected each frame of the bone structure and started changing the strength of the its "ease" in the properties window, then I put it back to zero and the object came back :) it's stupid but it works

That's really works by changing the ease number and back to cero!!
