That is why its always better to call it "Master Document" instead of a
template. I still remember that I was as confused as Noel when I tried
to do the same thing in version 1.2.3.

For now, think of the template pages as a background instead. Put
whatever is common on a few pages on a master document and apply it to
those pages.
