Not getting this error now in FireFox 20 and Chrome Version 26.0.1410.65 using MAC OS X 10.8.5.

Right now clicking on "Link" button while selecting a template adds the link to the left of the template and can access template edit after that.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
