How many karate folk use stepping drills? Many of those I use have been culled from Aikido and WTF Taekwondo, and they work rather well to train the delivery platform and distancing for evasion and the delivery of kicks, strikes and grappling techniques.

I use a variety of stepping drills, like stepping off the line at 45 degrees in sanchin dachi, various different steps and turns, and transitions between different stances.

Do you think this is important? Do you use any stepping drills or stance-changing drills? If so, what are they?

I add in the tai-no-tenkan from aikido drills every so often, but most stepping drills I like to do as partner drills against grabs.

Same core technique as striking, driving off back leg, striking with hip :-)

Do this up and down the dojo and notice how many new small muscles get a good work out.

Also use at times for just basic warm up.

Most stepping drills, like Elmar, are done with a partner, this helps the student visualise why they are stepping in that way.

Most bunkai uses this as a key factor, so lots of them!
