Copy Smart Text Setup

Is there a way to "copy" smart text properties to reuse them?


For instance, this morning I am applying smart text to contours (another question/idea that I need to compose some thoughts on). I went through and labeled 10 contours. I had to step away for a minute so I saved. I want to go back and continue labeling but I have to reset all of the properties basically from scratch. I could copy but this doesn't work for object dependent text. It does work well for things such as surface elevation and slope but only when the extract property is at the leader line or text insertion. 


There needs to be a "copy smart text properties" or "continue smart texting" command. This would be very valuable for drafting. 


I know I could save the data in the text field to an external doc but I want to take it one step further. Especially if the desired text is within the project the user is working in.
