I set up a job for printing to an online service (print to file). The overall page size is 11x14 (landscape). The image size within the page is about 6x9 I leave wide margins. There's only one image per page. The image is also horizontal.

At first the job's "Draft" page contained what I wanted: a "placeholder" for a single 6x9 image, arranged horizontally and with the desired margins.

Later I somehow changed it don't know how. The "Draft" page now shows placeholders for two 6x9 images, oriented vertically.

Additionally, starting a new page within this job creates a new blank 11x14 page, with no placeholder at all.

The desired result is a new page with a placeholder for a single 6x9 image and with the desired margins. How do I return the "Draft" page to that setup?

What is a DRAFT PAGE? Do you mean a Layout?

I'm taking my cue here from the Qimage UI itself. Let's say I'm looking the main page and cycling through the images via the "left" and "right" (arrow) buttons at the bottom of the window. As I cycle through them, the current page number is displayed in a drop-down menu at the bottom of the window. If I reach page 1 and click the left-arrow button again, I see a blank page containing "placeholders" indicating the number of prints per page, and their sizes. And at that point, the drop-down menu contains: "Drafts."

I would have thought they'd be called something like "templates" or "master pages." (Or layouts, as you suggest.)

Haven't yet figured out how to insert a link into a comment here (I just get "img" tags but no upload-a-file dialog) otherwise I'd include a screen shot to illustrate.

That draft is only  there so you can see the last print size selected. Useful if you want to know what the next insetion size will be.
