iWork Pages for the iPad includes a wide selection of document templates. Unfortunately, though, you can’t create your own iWork Pages templates on the iPad. But you can base a new document on an old one. To do this, you’ll need to create a copy of the document.
To create a copy of an iWork Pages document on the iPad, follow these easy steps:
1. Tap My Documents to open the My Documents screen
2. Swipe to locate the Pages document you would like to copy
3. Tap the “+” button at the bottom of the screen
4. Select Duplicate Document
The new document will appear in the My Documents window. Tap it to begin editing it.
