Hi Tony,
switch to list-mode (WEB-list), go to the page (or sysfolder) holding 
the template, search the list of content elements for the template, 
click on it's icon (the one preceding the name), in the context-menu 
appearing click on 'more options...', then 'Export to t3d.

Now you will see all depending structures you may export attached to the 
  template. Do as you need.

Go to whatever target-page or folder, click on the icon in the 
page-tree, select 'more options..' and 'import from t3d.
You can upload the .t3d file manually to fileadmin before or in the 
upcoming webinterface.
Select what to import, that's it.

If you have a bunch of content-elements to export and import I find it 
easier to export the full page or part of a page-tree holding these 
elements, then after import moving all needed templates/parts with the 
clipboard and deleting the imported pages afterwards.

Hope that helps.
