Are we still not allowed to modify/remove build-in templates in SharePoint Online?

Hi.

 

There are at least a couple of old threads on the subject on modifying or removing the built-in templates in SPO, so that the content creators are limited to fewer and/or only custom templates when creating news and pages. Both threads concluded that this was not supported. Is this still the case? 

 

Greetings,

Kenneth

You can create your custom templates to create modern pages and news in your site. When you are on a page, you can decide to save as template.

@Juan Carlos González Martín Thanks. I take it that removing the option to pick stock templates is not possible at this moment in time.
