      Hi,

       

      I am using the below script to clear paste board and getting the details what I cleared. But It is not working in CS4. It throw error in line 21, with parenPage is not supporting.

       

      I tried instance of Spread but no use.

      Could you please help to solve this?

       

      var scriptName = "Delete objects on pasteboard",    
      doc;    
          
      PreCheck();

          objs = doc.pageItems.everyItem().getElements(),   
          countTotal = countTextFrame = countRectangle = countImage = 0;    
          var lnkname=[];  
            
           var layers=doc.layers;  
          for(var i=0;i<layers.length;i++){  
          if (layers[i].locked){  
             layers[i].locked=false;  
           }  
         }  
            
          var links = doc.links;    
          for(var j = 0; j < links.length; j++){    
          if(links[j].parent.parent.parentPage == null){  
              lnkname.push(links[j].name);  
          }  
          }    
        
        
              
          for (var i = objs.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) {    
              obj = objs[i];    
              //lnkname.push(doc.allGraphics[i].itemLink.name);

             if(obj.parentPage == null) {

      }    
          
      function PreCheck() {
