I have several RootsMagic databases I maintain for various reasons; different lines, DNA specific research, helping someone else, etc.  I built a useful Custom Report that provides information from standard RM fields in a format I would like to run on more than one RM database.  Is there a way to save the custom report format so it can be selected and run on multiple databases that I have open or open individually?  If not is there a simple way to copy it between databases without rebuilding it from scratch?  It seems like this should be intuitive so I don't waste a lot of time building a report format I like  from scratch over and over every time I need to use it in a new or different database, but I couldn't figure out how to save it and have it show up as a selectable custom report format that could be run  in any database except the one it was created in.

No way to export it to another database. It is on the enhancement request list.
