Is this a change from previous versions, namely 0.4.8?  The tutorial 
translated by
Franz Schmid has you set up a template with text boxes set where you want them,
but whose content varies from page to page after you've applied the template.

Is there an easy way to set up the size and shape of your text boxes 
that you will use
across several pages and apply them all at once instead of setting 
each page up manually?
