Hi everyone!
My avatar is hovering and walking about 2 inches above the ground. What is going on, and how do I stop it?

Thanks!

There is a hover attribute in the shape editor in some viewers. In SL, for some reason I always ended up knee-deep in the floor.

It might be viewer dependent, but in Firestorm, right click on your face or bare skin, choose "Appearance" from the pie menu, then "Edit Shape". Under "Body", which should automatically be open, the last option is "Hover." Scroll down and adjust to the center, 50.

Otherwise, it might be your shoes. I've had a pair of boots that looked like that. I just had to pull them down a little.
