Thanks for that Louis. You seem to say that you can put elements outside 
the margins, but when I do this, anything outside the margins is not 
printed and you cannot change the margins in a page template.

What I am trying to work out is this:
In a 200 page book, for 90% of the time I will want a standard text box 
within set margins and I am trying to avoid having to manually draw all 
those text boxes, but on some pages I will want to have stuff beyond the 
margins....and.....I think I just worked out how to do it: Set up 
margins for the correct size auto text-box, create all the pages, reset 
margins, text box stays the original size :-)

Another question: is it possible to copy page templates between Scribus
