Q - question

Transferring dimension styles between drawings.

A - answer You can use the Express Tools command pair DIMEX and DIMIM to export and import your dimension style settings to/from a .DIM text file.

You can also drag-and-drop Dimstyles from your DesignCenter window (Ctrl+2).

For individual styles you can also just copy a dimension object from the source drawing and paste it into the target drawing - its dimstyle is copied along. (thanks FHardin)
