I want to create a few global templates for others to use, but I don't want to use wiki mark up, but the editor. Can I create the page/form and then save it as a template?
You cannot do this directly, but there is a workaround that may work for you. It was posted as a solution for a similar question at https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/42585/how-to-use-image-effects-in-a-confluence-template
1) Create a new page and restrict editing to yourself – this page will become ytour page template
2) Add all the content you wish to be in the template to this page, including the image with an effect
3) Save the page
4) Click on the tools menu
5) Right click on the menu item – Copy – and select 'Copy Link Address'
6) On another page create a link with an alias like 'Create a new <template name> page', using the link you just copied
When users click on this link Confluence will copy the page (template) you created in steps 1 to 3.
Hope that helps?
Unfortunately this is not possible right now, sorry about that. However, we have a page detailing this improvement request here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-11744
