Default InDesign CS: Text frame overflow check?

Quark is handy in that it has the Line Check utility for counting text boxes that over flow (even though it doesn't bring you to them....). Does InDesign have a similar feature? I wasn't able to find anything in the help file.

Thanks,
Ben

I don't spot anything obvious either. If you're using ID on a Mac I'd bet it could be done via AppleScript.

The only way I've found to to visually check for the little overset text symbols at the bottom of each text frame. Even preflighting doesn't report overset text. An odd oversight.

Atually, I've just thought of an easier way. Print the document. Somebody, sometime, is bound to notice that something's missing and tell you.
