How Do I Change the Default Settings In Pages?

How do I change the default Format and Document Settings in Pages? For instance, I want to change the default size font from 13 to 16. Right now I am satisfied with the Times New Roman font, but I may want to change that as well in the future. Also, in Document Settings, Header and Footer are always checked. I would like to uncheck them permanently, as well as permanently change the margin settings.

    Create a new document. Set all of the Paragraph Styles, Character Styles and other things to your liking. Save that as a new template. Then when you create your next document, start with that template instead of the Blank one or whichever you have been using.

    If it is just the text size to be set as a default (and not font or other styles), there is a setting in Pages > Preferences > General (at least on macOS version, I have not looked on iOS / iPadOS).
