Digital Signature Action Remaining in Spawned Pages

Hi

I am working on a form in Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017 Vers 2017.011.30105. The form is, initially, 4 pages. I have set the form up so that when a button is selected a 5th page appears. The 5th page includes a digital signature so that when signed it it marks fields on the 5th page read only.

 

I have setup for the 5th page to spawn and for the fileld names to remain the same. When I check the 5th page by making it visible in organise pages the actions on signing are there but when I preview the page and activate the button the page spawns but the digital signature actions are not there.

 

The code I am using to spawn the page is as follows:

 

this.getTemplate("Reassessment").spawn({bRename: false});

 

How am I able to ensure the actions on digital signing remain in the spawned form?

You can't have multiple copies of the same digital signature field. That's why it's not appearing when you spawn a page that contains such a field and set it to not rename the fields. You can add the a new signature field manually after the spawn command, using the addField method, though.

Would setting bRename to true resolve this issue?
