How to create a template from a page in Confluence 4?

I've spent the last few days optimizing a page which will serve as default template for our developer to document a module in our software. The problem now is that i can't seem to find a way to turn this page into a template, as far as i can tell it's even impossible to view the raw wikiformat of the page so i can copy/paste it into the template.

Does anyone know how i can achieve this?

Good question. Templates are only half-implemented in Confluence 4 - no real rich text editor yet. Would be a good opportunity for a plugin to add a 'Create Page Template' menu item in pages for Space Admins/Confluence Admins, which would pull the current page and send the markup to the 'create template' page.

I sure home atlassian adresses this asap, else i'll have to rebuild the page from scratch using wiki markup.

Hi Chris,

We are tracking this feature request here: . We do hope to have this resolved in the short-term roadmap.
