Hi testmmi,

as Denis wrote, you can do it by choosing a different master page or a theme. There are two ways to achive that:

1. Dynamically:

change the master page or theme (in page properties, see the attach-monoxSupport.png) of your existing page.

Please note that if you change the Master page/Theme this way, MasterPageFile/Theme in markup will not be changed, those changes will be saved in the
database.

2. Through Markup

you just need to specify a new master page file or theme

e.g.
  MasterPageFile="/YourSite/MasterPages/YourMasterPage.master"
  Theme="YourTheme"


Regards,
Ivan Marusic

Hi Markus,
I was under the impression that this was not possible, but it is - template is actually composed of a theme and a master page. Although you don't have the option to choose the new template page, you have the fields for theme and master page (which are stored in a template page). We will send more instructions soon.
