How to bring over dimension styles or text styles on Mac

This has probably been addressed before but I'm unable to find it.

 

Since there is no Design Center on the Mac version of AC is there some way to bring over dimension/text/multileader styles from one project to another so we don't have to re-invent the wheel so to speak?  I'm using ACLT on a MAC running Mavericks.

Hi,

I'm using this trick to bring dimension/text/multileader styles from one drawing to another:
1. open DWG with already created Dim/Text/Mleader styles
2. save it as temporary file, delete everything from it with "ERASE all", purge everything except Dim/Text/Mleader Styles and save it.
3. Open file where you want to bring Styles, call INSERT command, select file you created in step #2, check mark "Explode Block", then proceed with insertion.
4. Now all Dim/Text/Mleader Styles are in destination DWG ready for use.
