I have 3 checkboxes named (NYC, NY and NJ) that spawn a template (all 3 are different templates) when checked and hides it when unchecked, but I need it to show a specific page not at the end, what am I missing? (im not a coder)

The code I provided needs to be put into the original code that uses the check state to determine whether the template is spawned or deleted.

{this.getTemplate("NYC" ).spawn(nTargetPageNumber, false, false);}
else
{this.deletePages(nTargetPageNumber);}

 

The trick for removing the page is to determine the actual page number. This is simple if nothing has changed since the template was spawned, but if other templates were spawned, then you'll need some way to find t

The code you've shown does not "spawn" the page template. It hides and shows the actual template, which will always be placed at the end of the document. This will not work in the free Reader. To make the page appear at the desired location it has to be "spawned". 

 

this.getTemplate("NYC" ).spawn(nTargetPageNumber, false, false);

Thank for you this very helpful. Now if I uncheck the box it "spawns" again is that supposed to be?

The trick for removing the page is to determine the actual page number. This is simple if nothing has changed since the template was spawned, but if other templates were spawned, then you'll need some way to find the page. The best technique is to have a field with a unique name on the page.
