Open up a terminal window.
Copy Text from notepad, then paste into terminal window.

To explain a little further, you can from a terminal prompt (whether a terminal in Winbox, a telnet session or a SSH session) you can use the export command to get a textual configration command(s). You can modify that (or create your own) and then you can paste that into any terminal session. If you have any commands in the text, you should always have them from the root command tree, e.g.

/ip firewall filter add .....

instead of:

filter add ...

If you have another router already configured just goto for example /ip address and type export. Then just copy and paste it into the new box.

i would recommend careful examination of export file and only after needed changes are made - to import it into new router

Do an "/ip arp export file=myarptable" on the first router. This will create a file "myarptable.rsc" on the router.

Copy that file (yes, it is a script!) to the second router (via, SCP, FTP, ...) and do a "/import myarptable.rsc" on the second router.

Voila - you have copied your arp list.
Please beware that the export command only exports static ARP entries, but I suppose that is what you are only interested in, right?

The MikroTik scripts (.rsc files) are just simple text files.
So you can use Notepad, Word, EditPad, UltraEdit, Internet Explorer - just about everything ;)
