mirror vertex group weight ? 2.61

hi there, is there a way to mirror copy vertex groups weight to the opposite side in blender 2.61?? because everytime I try mirror vertex group it switch the entire vertex group to the other side…

I want to skin a character, I usually do one side(maya, 3dsmax) and easily mirror the vertex weitght on the other side…but cant figure it out in blender, my mesh is symmetrical.

thanks! :slight_smile:
