With vjoon Overset Manager, you can see at a glance if a file contains overset and which text threads are affected. And you can show or hide overset frames for the selected text flow or all text flows on the page.


  • Determine the color of overset frames, as well as their position relative to their master frame
  • Place overset frames comfortably at the top right corner in the document so that even long overset text will be visible – alternatively place overset text frames to the left of the original text frame when using right-to-left languages such as Arabic and Hebrew.
  • Count placeholder text to determine the exact text length needed to fill a text thread in order to give correct instructions to an editor
  • Calculate text length by number of characters, words, lines and manuscript lines
  • Calculate the number of standard words needed to fill the text frame, by setting the length of manuscript lines, e.g. a decimal number like 7.4, in the preferences
  • Measure the length of text in the current selection, text column or text thread
  • See values for the text that fits in the text frames as well as for overset text, separately
  • Measure the current text selection against the remaining amount of overset text for easy and precise copyfitting – If a text frame is not completely filled with text, the palette displays an estimate number of missing lines for underset text
  • Being alerted when printing or exporting a document containing overset text
