Export Code Generation and Transformation Templates

It is possible to export Code Generation and Transformation templates from your model to a .xml file. You can then import that file - and hence the templates - into other models, as reference data. You can export customized templates, which includes those that you or other users have created and updated, and base (standard) templates that have been tailored. You do not need to export base templates that have not been changed, as these are available in every installation of Enterprise Architect.
