    Can only admins set a default page template when creating a new page?  When I create a new page I can set a default page template but our  regular backend users cannot.  The checkbox to set a default template is not there.  Is there a separate permission for that?

    Hi Charles,

    By default only administrators can set a default template for future pages to use upon creation.

    "By default" as in there is a setting to change that?  I don't care if it's an ugly solution but it would be extremely helpful.

    Hi Charles,

    There is no such setting, or permission set to be applied. The administrator role is the only one that can set a default template for other users to use. What you can do as a workaround is to create a few administrator users and restrict them by user( not by role) to some permission set you want them to have. This will enable the users to set a default template and still restrict them to some other functionality you do not want them to have access to.
