(I searched if anyone has same problem but found nothing. So if this is a duplicate question please let me know)

My plan was to create a custome-page-template. So I found some tutorials and recognize that I have to create a php-file in template folder. All fine. Then I want to create a new page based on my template but there are no page attributes only empty dash bordered rectangl:

enter image description here

I remember my self that this empty rectangle was there for a while but I do not pay attention until now.

I'm relative new in using/administrating WordPress so I'm not sure where to start bug-hunting. Any help would be welcome.

WordPress-Version is 3.6 and theme is TwentyTen with some customizations in style.css (undo changes in css for test doesn't help)

Your template file should not effect the backend. Disable all of your plugins. – s_ha_dum Feb 19 '14 at 20:07
Is there a Page Attributes checkbox under the Screen Options tab in the upper-right corner? – Milo Feb 19 '14 at 20:12
@Milo: Thats it ... partly. Your comment helps. It was disabled but I have to activate the 1-colume-view. 2-colume-view still shows empty rectangle. If you will post your comment a answer I can accept it. – Micha Feb 19 '14 at 20:42
First of all, never add any changes or customizations to a theme directly. The wordpress themes get updated regulary, so you will loose your changes. Create a child theme and do all customizations in there. What debug information do you get when in debug mode. This might also help. – Pieter Goosen Feb 20 '14 at 10:01
@Pieter Goosen: Thanks for the stylesheet tip. – Micha Feb 20 '14 at 11:51
