Quite strange your issue, Lazzah. What's your ADRIFT version? I'm on 5.0.35.3 here and it's working for me.

My version is same as yours.

In one of my other games the PC starts off sitting on a bed and is able to examine everything in the same location, I just don't understand it. Luckily there is only one location in this game where the PC needs to actually sit or lie down, so I have prevented the PC sitting or lieing everywhere else in the game and have re-programmed the SIT and LIE DOWN or ON OBJECT tasks using variables. It works, that is the main thing!

No problems here either, Lazzah.
I have tried positioning my PC in different ways and I'm always able to look under bed, get pants (from chair) etc.

I must admit though that it's perhaps logically that if the player is sitting or lying on the bed s/he can not look under bed, or get am object from a table near by, unless s/he gets out of bed first.
