    Currently in 10.1 when using multiple MXD's if you 'drag & drop' a SHP file across from one to the other, the legend properties reset so you have to match the style in each MXD which is quite a cumbersome process.

    It would be good if the SHP being dragged and dropped would retain the properties so the legend displays the same way - Alternatively if ArcGIS supported multiple layouts like AutoCAD this would also solve the problem (Not data driven pages, but multiple layout TABS from the one set of data)
