Importing "style"s (Dimensions, families, descriptions, etc...)

I hope to all heavans that I am missing something here, but is there a way to just import the families from a previous job?  Or the "dimensioning" styles & "description" styles?  It takes me almost a whole day to pick through all those variables and set them to our standard.  So basically, without my template set up right now, it's taking me a whole day to start with a clean sheet.  There has got to be a drawing manager in here or something that allows importing of these, no?  I haven't been able to find anything online or in the help...

You can use ASD Center to import settings from some DWG to the current one:

But to avoid repetition it would be recommended to create DWT and set it as the defaullt one in Preferences of ASD.

I knew I was missing something when the drawing manager was no more....  Thanks!
