Possible? Not possible?

I followed the tutorial here... https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/how-to-build-a-button-that-creates-a-new-page

I have read all the current discussions I can find on this...

From what I understand—using a template and calling it with this simple little script

var a = this.getTemplate("Add Page"); a.spawn();

should work in Reader DC. But its not.

I get a JS error NotAllowedError: Security settings prevent access to this property or method. Template.spawn:2:Field Button4:Mouse Down

You don't need to Reader-Extend it.

It should work... Are you sure you're using Reader DC? Is the file protected or digitally signed, or something like that?

In what version of Reader are you opening it, though?

No, Reader XI and higher don't need these rights, and it won't work in earlier versions, anyway.
