    Scripting Book Page Numbering Options

    CouponCliff

      N00B scripter here... InDesign CS6 on an iMac.

       

      I'm trying to programatically toggle page numbering options for a Book, specifically the options in the dialog shown:

      I'd like to be able to uncheck and recheck the "Automatically Update..." option via script. Here's what I'm trying:

       

      myBook = app.activeBook;
      myDoc = app.activeDocument;
      myBook.properties.automaticPagination = true;

       

      It doesn't seem to be working... any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

       

      Thanks in advance,
