Add labels to existing template

When I create a new template there is a label button at the bottom to add labels. 

When I try to edit an existing template this button is not there, and I can't find any way to add a label to an existing template. 

It might be relevant that this is a meeting notes blueprint template. 

How can I add default labels to a template?

Confluence Version 5.7.1

Thanks.

Perhaps I missed it when you first posted, but you cannot change labels on templates provided by Blueprints, such as Meeting Notes, Product Requirements, or Decisions. 

I believe this feature request represents your current issue – https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-29447

If you would want this done, you would have to customize the Blueprint jar file yourself and recompile it, I'd imagine. It shouldn't be tremendously difficult but it's a customization. 

Thanks, that makes sense. As it is, the labels are just being used for generating task lists, which I can do by place instead.

Yes, but those options for generating task lists are new, (in this space, under this page). The labels used to be the only way.
