Ok but what puzzles me is that in Styles & Formatting window, Page Styles tab, there are 10 or so styles listed, including the "first page" to which you referred me earlier.

Er, they are the default page styles which come with the product.

What I had intended to do was create a new "first page" page style from it, and save as say "letter_first_page" so that it appeared in this list when I next opened it. I could then import that into two new documents which I would edit to further to create the two templates I need at present.

You want this in two templates. (Actually, I suspect you want *different* first page styles in each of two templates.) You can create it in one and then import it (using "Load Styles...) into the other. Job done. Why are you choosing to create it in a third document first? Did you then save your third document? If so, your new style is there. If not, you have destroyed your work before you attempted to use it. I don't think you can add to the default set of styles. You can store new styles in documents and you can store them in templates (even the default template) - which is much the same as having them in the default set.

Meanwhile I find I have created a template which looks OK starting with all defaults I assume and to which I have added a header. When I tried to change the style to "first page" so that the header would not appear on the second page, the header that I had typed vanished and I was presented with a blank header!

I'm not clear which page you set to have this style or what Next Style you have set for any of your styles, so I cannot guess what you are doing here. But headers are a property of page styles, so if you change the style of any page - whether directly or as a result of a change to some preceding page - you will get the header of that new style instead of what you had before. That's exactly why you would choose to change the style, of course!

I shall keep trying.
