How are you recommended to edit global templates in confluence 4?

The global templates seem to still be editable in only wiki markup and not the new rich text editor, is this correct?

In older versions, it was easy to make a page in a test-space for instance, and use the wiki markup code as a basis for the template, switching back and forth as you built it. Now that doesn't seem possible.

Are you supposed to just write wiki markup blind for the template? I rely on templates but right now I can't use it anymore without installing a confluence 3.5. Could anyone enlighten me on how to work with the new way?

At the moment, page tempaltes remain in Wiki Markup. We hope to change this. We are tracking that feature request here: we hope to implement this over the next couple of releases. Stay tuned. You can watch/comment/vote on that issue to stay updated.
