I'm not aware of any way to do that directly. However, there's a
workaround, in case you haven't thought of it. Copy-special the
paragraph format you want, paste it into a document that has all of the
other formats you want, and then import from that document to the
others. All of the other formats won't change, as they're already in the
document you're importing into, but the new format will also be
imported. Does that help any?

I couldn't think of good terms for searching for this answer using
Google -- suggestions are welcome...

I'm in Frame 7.2 on Windows. When I want to import, say, one paragraph
format from another FrameMaker file into the one I'm working in, I go
File > Import > Formats and then select Paragraph Formats, importing
*all* the paragraph formats from that other file.

Is there a way (including scripts, plugins, etc.) of importing only
the one that I want?
