Creating an article with SPPB I see options of adding sections, importing and exporting pages from my disk as well as importing a page from template bundles but I do not know how simply assign an existing page from the page list.

thank you in advance

as the first watch:
Yes, Page templates can be also used inside Articles where SPPB Mode is enabled.
Besides, you can create a basic layout then Export, and Import in new created Article.

Sorry, I don't understand that part.

Articles =/= Pages
those are two different areas.

Well, I can use a page template from PB template boundles to create a new article.
My question was: How to use my existed page for creating new article?
Now I have solved this problem exporting the page to my hard disk and then I import it to the desired article.
Is it correct?
Of course, Articles =/= Pages and the newly created item is no more an article and won´t be saved as an article but as a page.

Ps. "Assign" in the above sentence meant "use".
I use the word "Article" because I start creating a new value from content/article/create new article and only then I choose the option PB to develope it. Sorry, I am new user of this app.
