Auto-run in combat

I’ve just started playing again, and have had my character(s) go into auto-run when combat starts after a cutscene at least 10 times. So far I have been able to stay alive and win the fights, but it is really annoying.

Any advice on how to keep from going auto-run, and/or how to end it if (when) it happens again?

If I remember, double hit the direction key you’re going in.

Thanks for the info. I’ll have to try it next time it happens.

Update: double taping the button that controls the way the character is auto-running does work. Note: it has to be the wsad keys, not the arrow keys.
