# Pose mode- can't change transform location of root bone?

I'm able to rotate and scale the root bone of my armature in order to affect my model, but changing its position does not appear to do anything. The location appears to be changed, looking at the bone's transform, but it does not visually affect anything.
-location is not locked
-Auto IK is not on
-manipulate center points is not selected
-duplication in object properties is set to none

• There will be a constraint on the bone with "Transform" unchecked, which is why the transform value changes. – Leander Jan 10 '17 at 10:22

Looking at your file this problem is because the root bone Bone.27 is set to Connected. You need to unset this. To do this follow the below steps:
2. Select the root bone Bone.27
4. Uncheck the Connectedcheck box in the relations panel
