This feature would come in handy when rigging arms and legs.

Heyvern wrote a script that can copy and flip bones horizontally:

Thanks for the reply, but I wasn't able to download the zip file. When I click on it, I get a web page not available notice.

Heyvern's current site doesn't seem to have it either. If you email him, maybe he'll post it.

Thanks! I don't know why the feature was never a part of the software, like flipping points vertical and horizontal. Seems like a no brainer to me.

I am still working on the forum topic to update all those links and images.

For security purposes we deactivated direct downloads on our website. I need to update the links to file downloads.

Here is a link to download the Copy and Flip Bones script.

I think it will flip everything but doesn't copy over dynamic constraints. It works with v10.

You're welcome!

I just tested it out in v10 and it seems to work fine.

WOW!!!!

Version 6? Good grief. If anything I am surprised it works in that version. I don't think I created it till version 7 or 8! :)
