The Story object has a property "overflows" -- "If true, the story has overset text." Seems this is all you need.
2jongware: thank you
Can you advise some good manual of InDesign scripting DOM? It seems that standard adobe documentation doesn't contain full description of scripting model or probably I miss something.
Funny you should ask me. :-)
See this older thread -- near the bottom are links for the latest downloads.
It's a reference guide, not an introduction to scripting. For that, you are better off with the link to Adobe mentioned on the Scripting Forum intro page.
[Edit: I forgot: that one is for CS4. I also have a HTML reference for CS3, but not older than that.]
Thanx again for link )
Can I do deeper analyzing? For example, can I know how much characters (lines) overflowed or how much empty space left in TextFrame?
I've found related topic here https://forum.adobe.com/webx/.3bc94a3d.3c05f3d2
Yes, Dave Saunders' function to get overset text might help you.
For the rest it depends on what you're hoping to achieve :-)
you could try my fitStoryToFrame for CS3 script if thats what you are trying to do. It in the Adobe Exchange, and its free.
