    Blender has changed the duplication method, and now its actually easier. Take a look at this link: https://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/92866/armature-flip-name-does-not-really-work-blender-2-79

    When you press W, you can hit Symetrize, no problem with roll, no problem with names.

    So the bones that I duplicated come out with ".001" in the name even after I flip the names. And this causes problems when trying to fix the roll of the bones.
    Any ideas on how to prevent that?
