Using compile settings from previous book

I wish to use the compile settings from my last book in a new novel. Opened the last book and saved each of the compile settings as “My Formats.” When I open the new book, the names of the compile settings are there, but the all the settings are different - font, line spacing. paragraph spacing, etc. etc. How do I get the entire compile settings to come across to the new project?

I tried copying the .scrformat files into the new project’s …settings>compile formats folder, but they still look wrong in the new project.

I performed a “save as” on my previous book, deleted the text, and used it for my current book. Maybe that’s what everyone does, because all my compile problems went away.
