Use the story editor to see the overset text.
No, but the story editor shows it. Why don't you want to use it?
You could thread text frames on the pasteboard, also.

I was wondering, is there an option somewhere to have the overset visible in page, even if it's cut in the output?
that's not possible.
As you are showing in your screenshots the Story Editor Window is the only way to see overset text.
Sometimes when working with overset table cells that might be a bit confusing.
Especially if your layout contains nested tables like that:
Would it not negate the very definition of "overset text"? Then there would be no use for text frames either.
As it is, the design paradigm of InDesign is that text is constrained to fit inside a predefined box, and if it does not, you have to adjust either the text size or the frame size. (And the latter can already be set to automatically expand.)
I'm afraid I could not get the download link to work. It says ''You can download the FREE script here. Latest version V1.0.0 Beta' but it is not a link.
