[Scribus] Understanding application of templates

I'm trying to get a better handle on the template system in Scribus. I
can create a document and save it as a template and afterwards it is
avialable as template when I create a new document from a template.
If I want to add another page based on a template to that document or
want to apply a template to an existing page, the only template option
available to me is normal.
If I open a new document with my template and do a select all, then go
to edit -> templates and create a new template to which I paste the
content into the blank page, the new template becomes available to me in
the edit options. The template created is not available in any other
Maybe I am understanding what is meant by template incorrectly.
When you save a document as a template is it that this type of template
can only be used when creating a new document? Therefore, my idea of
applying this type of template to a newly created page in an existing
document will not work.
Does the option to edit a template under the edit menu or when adding a
page to an existing document utilizes a completely different template
(what I gather is called a master page)? This template is not
accessible between documents, only within the document it was created by.
Is it possible or will it be possible in a future version to make the
template (master page) available across documents?
