Hi all


I have recently made the transition to Pages from Wordperfect.


In Wordperfect I had a number of templates set up that would prompt me for text input when opened. For example I had a template for writing memos to my staff. On opening the template a dialogue box popped open and prompted me for subject of memo, date and receiver's name. Clicking OK when done would automatically fill in those fields in the template.


So , my question is this: how can I achieve the same thing with Pages. I'm guessing it might involve automator?? Or is there a built in function in Pages?
