This is what infuriated me most about GameMaker. The same code may work for one person but doesn't work for another. I can see you were following Shaun Spalding's platformer tutorials, which generally the code from that should work. I'm not sure why it's not working for you, it might just be the version of GameMaker? I was running 1.4 until I couldn't stand it anymore and stopped using GameMaker altogether.
The while loop should work, even though it seems like it shouldn't. Another reason GameMaker drove me nuts, it encourages bad coding habits!
Anyway, I hope you got it sorted out!

I love video games and movies. For as long as I can remember, my dream career has been to work in either of those fields. More recently, I've wanted to work in game development, because I feel that you can be a lot more expressive in games than you can be in movies.
I love being outside, but not in the winter - in Wisconsin, when it's cold it's COLD, and so I do most of my game development in the winter, but sometimes I work on projects a lot in the summer, too. It really depends on how motivated I am!
I also love the Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide series, The Twilight Zone (original series), Star Trek (old and reboot), Star Wars, music, writing, Minecrafting, hanging out with friends and playing Magic: The Gathering, and generally enjoying life.
