What is the text overflow symbol?

If a text box is too small to display all the text that it contains, a text overflow symbol appears in the lower right-hand corner of the box . The text overflow symbol will disappear if the text box is enlarged enough to display all the type that it contains or if the box is linked to another box for the text to spill into.

The text overflow symbol doesn't print; it's merely an indicator that there is hidden text in the buffer. Only text that is visible in a box will print.

TIP

If pages are mysteriously added to your document when a text box becomes full, it means Auto Page Insertion is turned on in Edit > Preferences > Preferences > Document–General.
