    How can I get an "Overflows" frame property in IDML?

    mlavie Level 1

      I am using InDesign CS5.

       

      In scripting, I can get the "Overflows" property to see if a given text frame requires overflowing. I could not find any similar property in IDML. Is there any way to determine solely from an exported IDML if text overflow is required? By this, I mean that the story is too long to be displayed in its entirety and thus a continuation text frame needs to be displayed.

       

      What I am trying to do is to take an IDML, check on each text frame to see if there is undisplayed text due to a "too-small" frame, and if so take requisite action. Any IDML-based suggestions, workarounds, or pointers would be gratefully accepted.

       

      TIA,
