Hi Nick,

There is currently no possibility to change a page template in the UI. But
this is something is going to be implemented before the release of version

You can also make your own page template selector by defining an extra
property for TYPO3.Neos:Page inside YAML. Then you can use this property to
assign the chosen value to which page template it should match using

If you need more help let me know and I will make a more detail version for
you :)
