Creating Templates in Pages

You can alter the existing templates in Pages or create new ones from scratch. Templates make it easy to get started when creating documents you often need. Your can alter a stationary template to create your own version and save time. You can also create a blank template that includes styles you often need.

    Do we have to create a template for labels? Apple does not offer templates for adhesive labels for packages that Windows does. In that, you just type in the label number and the template comes up. How would we go about making a template for these?

      I think you mean that Microsoft Word offers templates (not Windows, the OS). Is that right? You can get Microsoft Word for Mac, so it is the same, really. But if you want to use Pages instead of Word, then you’ll either need a template or you can just create a document that puts everything in the right place (same thing, really). Or, you could see if the label manufacturer produces a Pages template for you to use. Or, maybe someone else has created one and put it online.

        Not possible in Pages. In Word, you can use a template that automatically duplicates a kind of master or canonical label for all the labels on a sheet. When you edit that single label, all the others in the sheet change as well. In Pages, there is no such “auto duplicating” feature, so to make a sheet of labels, you have to edit every label individually, which in practice usually means creating one label and copying it to the others.

        I use a fine product called Labelist that does what u want.

    Gary could you do a video on how to create Mail Merge in Pages please? This video was fantastic – thank you.

      You can’t. There is no Mail Merge function. There are alternatives, though. What, exactly do you really want to do? Do you really want to print paper copies of something in large quantities with only a small part different on each sheet? Or, something else?

      Robyn,

      Check maclife (maclife.com?) magazine (August 2015). It has an article on Mail Merge in OS X.
