Scale Not being remembered?

I have a character in a scene that has a scale transform layer to resize it depending on the requirements of the scene. however. I find that if i set the value of the layer it is forgotten the next time load the scene fie up i even tried animating the layer but the animation on it isnt saved. I have attached the scene file

Never Mind I should jave just used the Zoom parameter of the encapsulated layer - DOH!

actually, Lets resurect this. I t looks like you cant animate transfrom layers in an encapsulation?

OK looks like It’s to do with refencing in from external .sif files- should have used synfig stage - whoops!
