Hamburg, Germany-based, SoftCare has released
Overset Manager, a plug-in for users of Adobe InDesign CS and InCopy CS. The plug-in allows users to count fitting text and overset — you have the option to automatically show or hide overset frames for the selected text flow or all text flows on the page. Overset Manager also calculates text length by number of characters, words, lines and manuscript lines for the current selection, text column or text flow. Available for InDesign CS and InCopy CS on Mac OS X or Windows, Overset Manager costs US$99; a fully functional demo is available from the company’s Web site.
