DESCRIPTION KEYS

How do I import Description Keys from another drawing. I tried exporting XLM file but I must be missing something. I don't understand what the general menu is. I was able to export but not sure what is next. Help. Can't say that its very user friendly.

Open the source and target drawings in one session of C3D, go to the Toolspace>Settings tab, expand Point>Description Key Sets in the source drawing, drag and drop to the target drawing.

Ian,

I tried something similar but it didn't work. But then I was trying to drag from two sessions of C3D 2014. The one session works. I find that this works in transferring other settings between drawings as well.

Thank you for your help.

......If there was a solution to my points problem I would be ecstatic.
