    Hey Keymerrah, It sounds like you're copying the entire script to a shelf button from the script editor, which won't work. What you want to do is: -- Drag a copy of the script (the "abWeightLifter.mel" file in the download) into your scripts directory (which will be something like "C:\Users\userName\Documents\maya\2014-x64\scripts" on a PC). -- Start Maya (or enter "rehash" in the command line, if it's already running) and paste the following bit of mel into the script editor: source abWeightLifter.mel;abWeightLifter; -- Hit Ctrl+Enter to execute the pasted commands without clearing out the script editor input window. -- The script UI should open. If so, you can now drag the pasted mel to the shelf to create a button. If not, let me know, and I'll see what I can figure out. I hope that helps.

    This script was amazingly helpful, intuative straightforward interface which makes it easy to use. Mirrors weights PERFECTLY. much better than the Maya buggy default tool. 10/10 would recommend to any Maya user.

    Excellent script. The default maya mirror weights caused things to go haywire. Using this one made it easy to mirror all the weights (including on the origin) perfectly. Thank you!

    Great script! It allows joining separate skinned meshes via coping weights! Also it has a flawless mirroring techniques.
