    Hi

    I was under the impression that it was impossible to add custom templates to Pages without using the messy workaround of creating a duplicate of the template file each time and not editing the original.

    That was until I came across this help page telling you how to do it: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH17145?locale=en_GB

    Great I thought, Pages is finally half useful... Except I can't get it to work with Microsoft Word templates (.dotx) files. Pages just seems to treat them as regular files.

    Does anyone have any ideas of how I can get this to work or am I out of luck?

    This is the one feature that's preventing me using my iPad for work.

    Cheers
