Here's how the overflow symbol location appears when the text box isn't selected:

Pretty sure that's a bug.

Try changing from GPU to CPU preview.
Maybe it's just a preview issue?

Good thought - just tried it, and the symbol sort of appears, but looks like this:

It's dimmed out when the frame isn't selected. That is normal behavior.

Hi @turner111:

 

It's now visible—dimmed as is expected because the frame is not selected—but also very small. You can increase the size in Prefs > User Interface Scaling > Anchor Points, Handle and Bounding Box Display Size.

 

As a tip, keep an eye on the Preflight Indicator on the Status Bar—it's the red light, green light button. If you see a red light, double click the word "error" to open the Preflight panel, and use it to navigate directly to the overset frames.

Thanks Barb - my Preflight "traffic light" is always on, but obviously doesn't allow us to visually identify anything.
Am I just imagining that the red plus in the square was always visible in the past?

I seem to remember it being brighter. They might have changed it along with the scaling ability. Works the same in 2022 and 2023.
