Hi All,

I am dealing with big xml documents where some time the external link in xml is coming as a text.

it is very long link  in one line without space it is coming so it is more then the type area width. it causes overset document.

I have already written to handle overset issue but i have not able to handled this type of issue in that function.

I have handled textframes overset will add page like that.

so when this long line get oversetted then my file stuked on server and based on the my overset logic when the textframe is oversetted it will keep on adding pages. it will go in infinite loop.or it will add upto maximum 9999 pages.

this i wanted to handle this one also

 

Any idea 

Thanks in AdvanceoversetIssue.png

Any suggestion.

I have shown in PFA

Hi, will it work when you apply language "No Language" to that text? It should break at any character then… Regards, Uwe Laubender ( ACP )

I marked Uwe's answer as correct as this will allow long url's to break and prevent endless overset text.

As for your automated placing system, consider breaking the loop if, after creating 3 pages, the last visible character is still the same. If nothing has budged after 3 pages, it is likely that nothing will budge and there's no point continuing to loop and add pages forever.

Adobe themselves have designed InDesign like this: Auto-flowing text stops after 3 blank pages...
