The SoftCare Overset Manager plug-in for Adobe InDesign and Adobe InCopy CS or CS2 gives you complete control over text length and text overset, enabling you to count, display, edit and print overset text. It increases production security by warning you if the document contains overset when you print or export a file. SoftCare Overset Manager is the ideal tool for everybody dealing with text-intensive files on a regular basis.
With SoftCare 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. From the SoftCare Overset Manager palette, you can go directly to a specific overset frame, and start editing the text.
Additionally, you will be alerted when printing or exporting a document containing overset text. With its extensive feature set, SoftCare Overset Manager significantly increases the level of production security and helps to prevent costly mistakes.
Preferences can be set to determine the background color of overset frames, as well as their position relative to their master frame. Overset frames can be placed comfortably at the top right corner in the document so that even long overset text will be visible. Alternatively, overset text frames could be placed to the left of the original text frame when using right-to-left languages such as Arabic and Hebrew.
By counting placeholder text, SoftCare Overset Manager allows you to determine the exact text length needed to fill a text thread in order to give correct instructions to an editor. SoftCare Overset Manager calculates text length by number of characters, words, lines and manuscript lines. The length of manuscript lines is set in the Overset Manager preferences. By setting the preference to a decimal number, e.g. 5.5, it is also possible to calculate the number of standard words needed to fill the text frame.
You can measure the length of text in the current selection, text column or text thread, and see values for the text that fits in the text frames as well as for overset text, separately. The SoftCare Overset Manager palette allows you to 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.
