Question: Blank template for Pages?

I just started using Pages. I chose the blank template which is what I will be using most of the time for simple letters and documents.


However, the "Blank Template" is not BLANK! There is a text box top and bottom into which it is intended that the page number should be typed. I do not wish to use them. I wish to use the WHOLE PAGE.


Is there anyone who is able to tell me how to delete these text boxes? I have tried everything, read the help pages (rather useless for beginners) and looked through all the menus. Can't find anything. Rang Apple, they can't tell me either.


Please help me if you know.

MacBook Air, OS X El Capitan (10.11.4)

Answer:
Answer:

What you describe are the customary header and footers which are tripartite by design. You have a couple of choices:

  1. Start with the Blank template, and then click Document in the Tool bar, and on that Document panel, deselect Header and Footer.
  2. Do item 1, adjust margins to taste, and save as your custom template.

    You can tell Pages in its Preferences to use this custom template when it launches, instead of the Template, or File Chooser.

Thank you. So simple and I was on the phone for about 30 min. only to be told that I have to go into the Apple store to the Pages lesson. Problem is, with my current mobility crisis, that is not an option.


So appreciate what you told me, and it worked.
