    Recently I have found myself in the need of having to date all my documents so when I print them, not having to turn mad looking for the actual dates to square every paper. But it's frustating having to click on the upper right corner and entering today's date all the time.

    My question really is:
    Is there any way of setting Pages so that every new blank document I start, to already come with today's date on the upper right corner (or wherever)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Open a blank page then go to the Insert menu and click Date & Time. Now go to the File menu and Save as Template and name it whatever you want.

    That should give you a new template you can start new documents from that will fill in the date and time.

    Or edit the header or footer to include the date. It updates automatically too
