Note that you alter the template /with the templates palette open/ .
Closing the palette returns you to editing the page its self. I
personally find this behaviour rather confusing - perhaps some sort of
mode toggle in the palette would help.

Also, I find that calling the menu item Edit->Templates makes me expect
a dialog not a palette. I found that rather confusing. It's better in
1.3 now that access to the palettes is all together in the menus.

That's probably a candidate for a rename to 'Import...'.
