Pages comes with a selection of templates spanning a range of useful documents from business correspondence to screenplays, envelopes to three-panel flyers (see Figure 3). As you’d expect from Apple, while the variety might not match the bucket loads of sample documents you get with Microsoft Office, they’re all high quality and well worth using. By default, when you create a new document in Pages, you’re presented with the Template window, from which you can select the template you want to use. You can turn off this feature in preferences; if you do so, and then you happen to want to dip into the templates at a later point, simply click File > New while holding down the Option key.

Figure 3 Pages comes with an attractive set of templates running the full gamut of documents from correspondence to newsletters, from envelopes to business cards.

By default, templates are saved in the My Templates folder inside User: Application Support: iWork: Templates. But there’s nothing to stop you from creating additional folders within the Templates folder for documents that are specific to your various projects and clients.
