Updating Page Properties macro on multiple pages at once

Hi, I'm working with the Product Requirements page template (containing the 'Page Properties' macro). Is there a way to update the rows which appear in every Page Properties table on all existing pages which use this template?

Short answer: no.

Once a page is created from a template, it becomes detached from that template, and so, you will have to update each page manually. If you suspect that there might be further updates in the future, I recommend you create a page with just the Page Properties macro and use the Include Page macro to add that page to the template (and all the existing pages). That way, when the Page Properties macro is updated, the template and all the created pages will then update automatically.

Thanks Milo, I didn't know about that macro - sounds like the way forward.
