Visio - can I make a new page in a diagram know to set the background page by default

So I learned here about background pages for the frame and title block of my drawings.  GREAT!

But now, if I have a forground page and the background page in a visio diagram and I want to add another foreground page, I click on the new page tab down by the other page names.

But then I have to manually do page setup and choose the background page.

Is there a way to have it auto use the background page rather than 'none'? so all new pages already have the background page set?  This is visio 2010 if it matters.

thanks!

The key is to make sure that the foreground page that is already linked to the background page is active when you click the Insert Page button. To say that another way: ensure that the foreground page whose attributes you want to "copy" is active, i.e., on top, before you click the Insert Page button.

In contrast, if the background page is active when you click Insert Page, you'll just get a generic new page with no background.
