Transfering stuff from one Construct to another

It seems that it takes quite a lot of time to make a game with Construct. One pretty obvious reason is that I can only use 1 Construct program per project and cannot copy paste stuff from one project to another.

Is there a way to transfer things like layouts, event sheets, etc from one project to another? I have tested that animation frames can be transfered and that their hotspots can be copied as well. Since I'm with a team of 3, the other 2 are not able to help whenever we're working with Construct. It would be better if the 3 of us could just do each of their tasks in 3 separate Constructs and just copy paste it all in one project so that it would be a lot faster and efficient.

Any ideas on this? Should I even try to suggest this in the Feature Request board? Or is it already been asked.... Why so many questions... bla bla bla... Thanks for any help guys. Yeah!!!

There are certain issues with copy&pasting between projects, so I tend to avoid it where possible. Copy&pasting graphics etc. is safe, but events, objects and stuff aren't so safe.

I tend to create a project template, barebone .cap, which includes the basics that I repeat a lot, then I create new projects from that template.
