Strangeness importing track from other Cubase project

I created a template and want to import tracks from another Cubase project. There are 4 piano tracks (4 mics) and a vocal track with lanes. The piano tracks imported with no problems. I’ve tried several different ways to import the vocal track and it always comes into the new project in a different position from where it was in the original project.
They are aligned in time in the original project, but not aligned in the new project which was started from a template.
I can always just import them all into a new project, I guess, if a template is a problem.
Thanks for any help.
